Let them wear pants! Asiana Airlines female cabin crew have spoken out against employer regulations mandating them to wear skirts while working. The flight attendants, with help from their union, have proposed to executives to offer more uniform options beyond just knee length skirts.
Asiana has fought back by saying the uniform was based on traditional Korean dress called a hanbok and women didn't wear pants with this dress. For those that don't know what a hanbok looks like, it is a high-waisted dress, so it makes sense that women wouldn't wear pants. Asiana has no plans to change the uniforms rules in the future. Alas, the desire for a change doesn't stop at just the skirts.
