AIR­LINES are known to adopt a fairly strin­gent at­ti­tude to­wards ex­cess bag­gage, but this ap­proach is typ­i­cally re­served for suit­cases and not peo­ple.

Not so for the body-con­scious man­age­ment at Pak­istan In­ter­na­tional Air­lines, who dis­trib­uted a memo to 1,800 of its cabin crew de­mand­ing they shed ki­los in six months time.

“No one would like to have shabby crew in the air­craft,” the memo reads, ad­ding the air­line had re­ceived com­plaints about “obese” flight at­ten­dants.

Those who do not meet the strict weight lim­its (e.g. 66kg for those who are 166cm tall) must re­port monthly to a “groom­ing cell” to re­ceive clear­ance - talk about car­ry­ing the weight of the world!
