Ladyboy Flight Attendants Takeoff

Back in January we gave you the lowdown of a new Asian charted airline, PC Air, who had been accepting applications of transgender candidates for the position of airhostess. With the launch of the airline PC Air has gone into groundbreaking territory announcing the flight attendant crew of four transwomen, 19 females and seven males.  

The president of the airline is not shy to toot his own horn, as told to the Daily Mail UK: “I’m a pioneer, and I’m sure there will be other organizations that follow my idea."

But hey, this is a world’s first, and any stride for equality is worthy in our book. Chalk up another point for Thailand, where "katoey" (or transwomen) have greater visibility and acceptance than most anywhere else in the world, even without official government recognition (their identity cards always say "male).

We welcome Chayathisa Nakmai, Dissanai Chitpraphachin and Phuntakarn Sringern (all 24 yrs), and Ms. Nathatai Sukkaset (26 yrs) to the friendly skies. See you in Bangkok!
