Cabin Crew Rostering By Gender

Thu Jun 29, 2000 9:16 am

I am curious to know what proportion of airlines still roster cabin crew for flights based on gender?

For example, AI requires that every 744 flight have a 11 female crew, 9 male crew and a male inflight supervisor. The male and female crew have different pay scales, seniority and mandatory retirement ages (58 for males and 48 for females - it used to be 30 back in the 1970s).

i wish there was more male crew, especially if they are flaming homosexuals. I am not gay or racist, but the gay flight attendants are the best. Why do you think they work first and buisness class?

I dont think that's correct, airmale.
I believe the Indian government raised retirement ages to 58 for both male and female flight crews.

The official retirement age is set at 58 for both male and female crew, but the females are grounded from flying after age 48. As a result, they sit on the payroll but earn no money unless they take "early retirement" benefits.
