Swedish Gulf Air F/A, Too Ugly To Resume Duty  
User currently offlineLH4116 From Sweden, joined Aug 2007, 1714 posts, RR: 18
Posted (5 years 6 months 3 weeks 23 hours ago) and read 20722 times:

I just found this article about a Swedish GF flight attendant, who survived a knife attack during a stop over in KUL. But due to her scars, the airline said that she was too ugly to go back to work.

Here's a link to the article, only in Swedish though.
http://www.aftonbladet.se/wendela/jobbet/article4693474.ab

Here's a full story of the article, in English:

Quote:
The Swedish flight attendant Bahareh, 23, survived the nightmare journey with the knife-man. But the airline Gulf Air said that her scars were too ugly and forced her to quit.
- "I hate that company, and I would like to warn others from working for them", she says.


Bahareh Aresinejad from Borlänge had only been working with GF for four months when she was attacked during a stop-over in Kuala Lumpur. Suddenly the taxi driver pulled up a knife, and Bahareh threw herself out of the car, and slammed into the tarmac at 80 km/h (50 mph)

- "I got the third grade burns on my arms and my legs", she says.

For six months she was on the hospital, before she was considered healthy enough to start flying again. But the came the next hit.

She wasn't allowed to have scars
- "They sent me a letter where it said that they wanted me to quit. They were concerned about the scar on my arm, and that you can't have visible scars when working for them".

When Bahareh refused to quit, Gulf Air threaten to suspend her permanently. Something that would have made it impossible for her to continue her career on another airline. Since she saw no other way out of this, she finally decided to quit.
The luxurious airline based in Bahrain offers good salaries and, a habitation in the sun, a dream job for many young people.

Strict policies
In March last year, Bahareh and 30 other Swedish women flew down to Bahrain to undergo Gulf Air's crew education. They had all got the job from the Swedish employment office.
They quickly found out that the rules were very strict, everything from their hair style, to the lipstick was controlled by the airline. And a single beauty-spot could lead to suspension with no payment.

The weight of each flight attendant was written in the employment contracts.
Patricia Stamenova, 23, from Borås, had enough only after eight weeks, when they forced her to loose weight.

- "You become very offended. Why did they hire me in the first place if they thought i was too fat", she says.

When they wanted her to change hair color, she packed her bag and left. And when she arrived home in Sweden she still had contact with the other Swedish women.

- "I can only speak for myself, but i knew that many other women felt really bad and, some of them even got eating disorders", she says.

Gulf Air confirms that the connexion exist, but they don't want to renounce themselves in single cases.

My question now is: Is it right for airlines, to give their employees this kind of treatment?
And are there any other airlines that treat their crew in the same was as GF did in this case?

That is just ridiculous, it's sick. The airline should be happy that she survuved the attack with only a few scratches, instead they suspend her!

In most of the world, especially in Europe and the Americas, this would be illegal as a form of discrimiation against workers and specifically as to women. In the Middle East and certain areas of Asia, it isn't. Alas, I don't see it changing in those countries as it is their sovergin right to do so and no one fight for it.

I have great sympathy for the FA who was injured due to assault and did not remain employed. LTBEWR summarises it rather well. I hope the FA will be able to resume her duties somewhere else. The airline policy was probably designed against allowing for tattoos, but a case of assault is obviously different. Still, they may want to protect the brand image they're marketing to the public -- attractive, 'perfect' looking cabin crew members of either gender. Is that right? We all have our own personal views on this. I hope this has a happy ending. I'd fly any day with a safety-oriented professional such as herself, scar or not.

But for Ms. Stamenova (a different FA and situation, quoted above), I have to wonder if she found the requirements objectionable, why did she knowingly put her name to a legally binding employment contract? A contract is by definition a two-sided agreement by both parties. If she didn't like their terms, don't agree to it by signing it and find employment elsewhere or to suck it in and honor the signed agreement as written.

I've had people try to push contracts on me and pressure me to sign without having a chance to take it home and review carefully or consult a lawyer. When people do that, I usually politely decline to sign if they tell me I simply must sign it on the spot without any flexibility and accept the consequences of not signing on the spot. I'm sure Ms. Stamenova also had the same option as well.

Just because you don't think it's right from a UK or US perspective, doesn't do anyone a lot of good here.

If you sign a contract, and it says no scars, and you get some scars.... why is the airline at fault for firing you when you are not holding up your end of the contract?


Sure, some more tact would have been nice, perhaps she moves into a job that isn't in front of customers, as the scars were part of an accident. That might have been more sensitive, but a deal is a deal.

I wasn't saying she should take out a lawsuit, I was just asking if there was a similar sort of thing that she can do... I remember hearing that there is more lawsuits taken out in the US than anywhere else.

And FA's here in US think they have it tough. Not only would ¾ of the FA's I work with not qualify, but a union vote wouldn't even be a pipedream. Luckily, here in the US, we have rights against discrimination. But should this come as any surprise? I mean we're talking about a society which looks at women as objects of convenience and pleasure for male domination. I mean especially western women/non-muslim or natives. They're hired to be legalized prostitutes for passengers. EK literally tells them they have to flirt and engage in dating passengers. I'm sorry, but these women know before they go what they're in for. It's buyer-beware. I have sympathy for them, but there is a level responsibility that goes along with that. If you want western rights, stay in the western world. I'll take DL over any foreign airline. Maybe QF or BA, but that about

All this is already well known history.

All those sand pits Airlines are up to the democratic image of the "countries" they represent...
No respect AT ALL for the human being...

Even respected captains call their "employer" when in layover to notify they quit with immediate effects (I personally know two pilots in that situation, who used to work for QR and EY).

As one says: just the visible part of the iceberg.

While I can understand that it would make it impossible to get a job back with Gulf Air, how would this really effect the hiring practices of another company? For example, if she went back home to Sweden and wanted to get a job with SAS, why in the hell would SAS be forced to listen to what Gulf Air said?

Quoting BlatantEcho (Reply 6):

Two totally different things. For example, there is a difference between suing because "the burgers made me fat" and suing because "an airline took away the way I made a living for a questionable reason".

People get out of contracts if they have certain criteria/circumstances all the time. Sure it SAYS no scars, etc. but when certain circumstances are present (crazy man attacked her, etc), most companies will make certain concessions (long sleeves, etc.)

We discriminate against all sorts of women for not looking perfect, but when an airline does it, then it's not OK?

I'd like to know how many of you would like to have the government regulate relationships. Why are you breaking up with your girl/boy-friend/wife/husband? Oh you found a better looking one? Sorry, you are not allowed to break up for those reasons. You two are stuck.

Found out you are/aren't gay? Whoops, sorry, to break up with your partner for another partner in the opposite gender is discriminating against your current partner. Can't do it.

At least Gulf Air didn't lie to her. Would have been much easier. Then again, I suppose maybe she would prefer.

If she didn't like the rules, then she shouldn't have taken the job.

PS: and of course, let's blame the Arabs. Because we don't so such things  Yeah sure

What perhaps is very unfair is that this woman was subjected to a violent attack. The woman was traumatised, and as a 23 year-old she's probably self-conscious anyway. Had she deliberately inflicted the scar upon herself, then okay she should be fired. It's the lack of sympathy and decorum Gulf Air displayed that's so bad.
They should have figured out something else.

Some people suggest it's a symptom of the wider culture of the Arab/Muslim world, where women are seen as objects etc. I just want to say that this has nothing to do with it. Women in the 'West' can be treated just as bad.

Under U.S. law I think you would find that because she was on a stopover related to her duties for her employer (see below) as a flight attendant she would have recourse so long as she was not acting irresponsibly.

Quoting LH4116 (Thread starter):
Bahareh Aresinejad from Borlänge had only been working with GF for four months when she was attacked during a stop-over in Kuala Lumpur.

There are companies (and unfortunately this looks to also have a cultural component to it) that still need to discover that this kind of publicity is bad for business and brand building. There are better ways for handling these situations. Though perhaps still not desirable they could have moved the employee to a position that does not interface directly with customers (we don't know in this case if such an offer was made).

I agree with you, but do you think GF cares? The only solution is to ban these carriers from flying to the West until their HR policies (or their governments' HR policies) match those of the West and then are deserving of flying Westerners.

Any Westerner whi now flies GF is guilty of condoning and arguably supporting this barbaric treatment of this Swedish girl,

In certain parts of the world, no. HEck, they was a time in the US when F/As, I mean stewards, couldn't be married or have kids and had to maintain a certain weight. That is long gone along with other un-explainable laws that the US has had but without absolute knowledge, I think this is still common practice with some Easter carriers.

Is it an ugly thing? Yes, of course. Anything we can do about it? Nope.

That is by far unreasonable. We cannot dictate what an independent company does in a sovereign foreign nation. As far as I'm aware, Gulf has not broken Bahrainian laws the girls termination is legal and proper in the eyes of the law.

Gulf Air may have gone against our western sensibilities by firing the poor girl, but that in no way should bear on how they run their airline. If people are disgusted by Gulf's actions, simply boycott the airline and hope for the best... the greatest way to influence corporate opinions against discrimination is to hit them hard in their pocket book... the gays have done it, blacks have done it in America, etc. Such actions have created anti-discrimination policies that are far ahead of anything that would come to pass via government (at least in America).

This whole thread is sick. The woman survived a vicious attack. I am thankful she is alive.

There are still countries that have rules on what a flight attendant should or should not be. Or worse yet, LOOK LIKE. In this day and age, I find it wrong.

Many countries around the world, the middle east area being one, hire their cabin crew on"contract" from other nations. I personally know a woman who flew for SAUDIA and said it was like living in a prison. She was attracted to the pay, the promised living conditions, and the thrill of adventure. However, when she went to work for them it was anything but. She had been lied to.
She lived in a compound, on layovers ,passports were controlled by male on-board staff, and she was critized for everylittle blemish or perceived flaw. She could not wait to leave.

This woman, Barhareh, is to be commended for telling her story.
