Here’s How This Airline Company Determines if Flight Attendants are Too Fat to Fly

Flight attendants too fat to fly? Ridiculous as that may sound, Chinese Qingdao Airlines has a strict weight requirement policy that flight attendants must meet to ensure “flight safety.”

The company even has a color-coded chart purportedly used as a weight guideline, according to The Nanfang. The chart, which looks to be a standard metric BMI index, dictates the optimal weight flight attendants should maintain according to their height.

If a flight attendant’s weight slips into the red zone they are immediately dismissed from their jobs.
