Air India Fires 10 Flight Attendants for Being Too Fat

Air India, which has strict rules about how much their flight attendants can weigh, has fired 10 of its staff for being too fat (whether or not they were Phat was not mentioned in the article).  According to the airline, “an 18-year-old air hostess with a height of 152 cm, the maximum weight permissible is 50 kg, while for air hostesses in the age group of 26 to 30 and a height of 152 cm, the weight limit is 56 kg.” (Yes, I’m too lazy to convert those numbers).

India’s high court has allowed the airline to maintain rules related to flight attendant weights.
