Airline orders cabin crew to lose weight

Pakistan’s national airline is cracking down on what it terms the “excess weight” of some of its cabin crew.
A memo distributed to approximately 1,800 cabin crew working for Pakistan International Airlines says they have six months to slim down to required limits or face being grounded.
The order, issued January 1, 2019, by Aamir Bashir, the carrier’s general manager, flight services, advises that official excess weight limits would be cut back by five pounds a month.
Currently, flight attendants who are 30 pounds over are still eligible for flight duty.
PIA issues its crew a suggested weight chart for differing heights and body types. For a “medium frame” woman of 5 feet 7 inches height (1.7 meters), for example, the guide is 133 to 147 pounds.
“Weight check of all the cabin crew will be carried out at their base stations respectively and comprehensive data will be maintained for perusal of management,” according to the memo, seen by CNN.
Those already “on weight check” need to report monthly to a “grooming cell” — the term is not defined any further — to receive clearance to fly.
