Babybus has a point..
does have female crew, they do not have any Saudi female nationals as crew. I say this from past experience flying with that airline.
They dont have female nationals working as aircrew mostly because of society still being conservative. But then again, this is not an SV
thing only, but all Gulf airlines face a lack of applications from female citizens of their home operating base. EK
can count the number of female nationals working as aircrew on one hand. I would say that probably WY
(Oman Air) might have abit more than the Gulf average.
I know the Kuwaiti woman who do fly as aircrew with KU
tend to fly on the 320 routes only - doing KWI-XXX-KWI on the same day. Society is more accepting of that (out and back in the same day) than being abroad for days on end without - what is seen as - protection of a male counterpart.
opeartes mostly short-haul flights with the 738's and that is why its not unusual to see abit more female nationals working onboard their flights than other Gulf carriers.
