Male F/A

Mon Aug 22, 2005 9:50 pm

I don't want to get flamed for this...

Lately I have wondered why the f/a ratio women to men is very unbalanced. I have read an airline recruitement add that specifically states "only women can apply" (Aerocalifornia) why are there not more male f/a and why some airlines appear to preferr women? Are male f/a harrassed because of their career choice?

In Mexico, airlines like Aerocalifornia and Aviacsa only let women apply, and other airlines like AeroMexico and Mexicana have quotas, which stand at around 20 or 25% for AM and 33% for MX I believe.., which means that if you're a guy, there's a lot less vacancies available for you. That is why you may have noticed that there are more gals than guys flying around, at least on mexican skies. Otherwise, if you look at the crew of a BA, LH or AF flight, you'd notice that things are much much more balanced actually.

Well, since most of the male flight attendants I have had in recent times have been effeminate homosexuals, it's just about the same as having women.  Silly Now, having said that, I usually tend to receive better service from a gay male F/A than I do from a female F/A or a straight male F/A.

We have lots of male flight attendants here in the US. I would have to say, however, that latin american and asian countries tend to prefer female flight attendants. In the US, it is considered discriminatory to hire based on gender if being of a specific gender is not a "bona fide occupational qualification."

Now, I wish there was a certain standard for attractiveness...we've got some ugly ones here in the US!

[Sarcasttic mode on...]

there is a very old airline joke regarding F/A and airline recruitment:

An airline had three candidates to a cabin attendant position.
the first was very friendly and service minded,
the second was a powerfull worker with lots of experiance in service,
the third spoke six languages fluently.

Which F/A did the airline recruite?

- The one with the big T***


It's only a chovinistic joke, but unfortunatelly there is lots of truth in it.

RE: Male F/A

Mon Aug 22, 2005 11:15 pm

I personally prefer to see young/youngish, strongly physiqued, confident looking men as flight attendants for the paramount reason that I would be relying on them to be an effective front line in dealing with an emergency, such as a rogue passenger.

My views are coloured by an event a year or two ago here in Australia when a passenger tried to storm the cockpit of a QF flight from Melbourne to Launceston, Tasmania and bring the plane down. The guy was psychotic but lucid enough to state later that crashing the plane was his intention. He had managed to bring on board sharpened wooden items that acted like small spears or stakes.

A male f/a tackled him down to the ground like in a rugby game, but the mad guy kept trying to fight the f/a off by stabbing him repeatedly in the head with his wooden stakes. (Even if he had been unable to get into the cockpit, the guy was clearly ready to kill anyone in his way). Other passengers helped subdue him as well and he was then securely restrained. The male f/a was a well built, around 40 and clearly acted courageously. Luckily, he suffered no serious injury as a result despite several gashes to his head.

There was a female f/a involved as well who was badly cut and bruised about the face; but I believe it was the male f/a who was most - if not entirely responsible in fighting the mad guy to the ground before other passengers came to assist in disarming and restraining him.

I do not believe that a female f/a would have less courage merely because of her gender - look at women in the police & armed forces. But f/a's do not have firearms, and so strong and courageous men have more of the necessary physical force to bring to bear.

Attitude in providing service comes next and both males & females can be equally excellent, appalling or in between in my experience.

I have sometimes despaired when encountering obviously out of shape f/a's and realised that I would be relying on them in an emergency. Obviously not every emergency needs optimal physical strength from its f/a's; but I would much prefer there to be tons of it available if needed.

Yes. It's just the more...colourful male F/As you remember. In fact, more F/As are straight than you might think. Furthermore, the idea that all male F/As are gay is mostly an American stereotype. For instance at my company (European), while no official survey has been taken, it's generally accepted that the majority of male flight attendants are straight. However, get to close to some of Lufty's and you'll be left with blisters!  Smile

Well the answer to that will probably start by stating that America is far more paranoid about discrimination than any other country. No one discriminates in the women's favour. Flight attendants started out as being a female occupation. Only recently did males start appearing more often. There is no discrimination involved. Its a very graceful occupation. It's a pleasure to be served by a beautiful woman on a flight. Most men around the world understand that, so they know that they will have a lower chance of getting hired. And if they are rejected, they don't tend to think that its discriminating. America just over reacts with everything. If women get hired more often for flight attendant positions that does NOT mean the airline is discriminating!!! That's just an outrageous comment.

I remember that scene from "Catch me if you Can" where Leonardo DiCaprio's character goes to some university to "recruit" Pan Am 'stewardesses' (oops, can't use that term anymore ...). I don't know, but I would assume that this "recruiting" seminar was only open to women. Times sure have changed ... on my last AA flight from CLT to DFW, we had two male flight attendants and a female first officer. I saw no difference in (1) how the plane was flown, or (2) the service I received in the cabin.

I agree, Aggie - when I first started as an F/A I just assumed that about 80% of males would be gay - however, the actual figure is more like 20-30%.

At my airline, the ratio is 55% female to 45% male crew. Seems to work out well, although on some of our Asian routes the passengers are rather surprised when they have two females flying the plane and an all-male cabin crew!

Not really. I'm not discriminating anyone. It is known all over the world, that America over reacts to mostly everything. I live in America myself and I love the country. Im not showing any discrimination toward it. A simple rejection of a man to an FA position is not discrimination. Nor is the unequal ratio of Men to Women FAs. It's just that in other countries of the world, they don't find anything wrong with it. But most Americans act up by saying its discrimination as usual. Just a fact.

Not all latin american countries are the same. When in Colombia last time I observed that whereas there was a majority of female FAs, there was a sizable number of male ones on Avianca. Memorable is a flight from Cartagena to Bogota where there was a particularly dishy one, part of a 2 male, 2 female cabin crew. Incidently, on that flight the first officer was a young woman.

A simple rejection of a man to an FA position is not discrimination.

A rejection of a man to an FA position merely because he is a man is a perfect example of gender discrimination.

Anti discrimination laws generally do allow for exemptions where it is deemed to be in the public's interest. For example a cleaning company would be successful in gaining an exemption so that it may only employ women to clean women's toilets. In the example I gave of strong men being employed, I would expect that an airline would have to mount a convincing case - in which they might be successful - if they wished to be open about favouring men or employing only men in the particular role.

No exemption would be granted on the basis that most men prefer the look or whatever of female attendants. There is no overriding public interest matter made out in such a situation.

Anti discrimination measures are western values, not merely or even mostly American. They are the result of social changes that have been evolving within western societies (and now elsewhere, of course), which can be traced back at least to different events such as the French (& subsequent American) Revolution and the Reformation which have had a major role in developing the ideals of western Europe which has since been exported to so much of the world.

I've been working part-time for a major U.S. carrier for the past seven years performing ramp duties. My full-time job was as a Detective in the NYPD, retiring in January of this year. I was surfing my companies "intra"net web site and found that they are looking for F/A's. So I applied right then and there and received a response within two weeks. Scheduled an interview and hopefully I will get the position. My wife thinks I'm nuts for doing it and my friends have teased me about my masculinity. Anyway, almost every female F/A that I have spoken to has told me that they would prefer to have someone like me flying with them. Now I never asked them to clarify their comment. However I took it as meaning one of two things. That they prefer to fly with a male who has prior law enforcement experience or the fact that I am a straight male. Or is it both ?

It also depends on the Airline- I have been at 3, and I can say that the "Legacies" have many more gay male F/A's than the other carriers... Many of my good F/A friends are gay (but they don't wear make-up and are not "queens") and they are a lot of fun to work with, plus many are also straight and married- more than you think!!

by the way, has anybody ever seen a ¨decent¨ looking F/A on WN? I´ve been on many WN flights, and the F/A´s normally look as if they dress on donations and all have somekid of sickness...Not trying to be a di*k but that is just how it seems...(in my eyes)

Personaly, If I was the owner of an airline company, I would only hire female F/As also they would have to be less than 30 years old. Maybe I'm old fashioned and don't want to see males as F/As plus I notice that male F/As are not that into the service as much as females are, for obvious reasons.

Well, I have worked for TK during a summer short term, when I was a medical student. Now it's been almost 13 years now, and work as a doctor in one of the most prestigious hospitals in the world in North America. I always wondered, if people do treat other people differently in different circumstances. I never have seen personally a discussion forum, if the male doctors were gay or not. One of the reasons, I went into this job (F/A), was getting some experience in dealing with people. I found it a very hard job though. On the other hand, dealing with arrogant and rude people, who had the impression, like as if we were the servants, were the most disgusting aspects of the job. Now, I am working as a doctor, and I wonder, if the people around here, who made these rude and judgemental comments, would treat the same person (myself) in the same way, regardless his job? I don't think so. Get rid off your shallow stereotypes, and please try to respect everybody fair and equally. Otherwise, it wrecks your personal reputation, guys.

On a more amusing note, I had to chuckle that someone found Cornish's post offensive

Needless to say, I'm being hyperbolic...but you get the gist.

Thank you, TKRULES, for a little perspective.

 rotfl  Fair enough Orion, you got me laughing! Unfortunately the good lookin male F/A's are few and far between in my experience.

PLEASE STOP WITH THE BIGOTED TERM 'FLAMER". That is just degrading to someone.

Yes some gay people are more afemine than others, but then there are those of us that shock people all the time when they find out we are gay. SO

FlyGuy and LUVRSW you owe many of us an apology! Your terms you are using are very rude and crude and truly hateful.

Personaly, If I was the owner of an airline company, I would only hire female F/As also they would have to be less than 30 years old. Maybe I'm old fashioned and don't want to see males as F/As plus I notice that male F/As are not that into the service as much as females are, for obvious reasons.

That's illegal my friend, sex+age discrimination... "Your" airline would be in the employment courts before your first plane is allowed to land!

Actually AirWillie6475,

If you ask a premier level passenger who is flying up front all time if they would rather have a female or male F/A, the majority of them will tell you MALE as they are more detailed and service oriented than most of the gals.

I think its time the moderators consider deleting these posts. While I have enjoyed the humor content which has made my life @ work much easier, why do I have a feeling that this is a post waiting to explode .....
