India's airline regulator clamps down on 'unbecoming' flight crew TikTok videos

Listed below are the specific instances of the so called "unbecoming" videos:

1. flight attendants grooving to popular tunes or lip-syncing movie dialogues while inside an aircraft.

2. cabin crew member smiling and walking down the aisle of an airplane full of passengers

3. singing, dancing or ramp walking along an aircraft’s aisle.

4. dancing to a Bollywood song inside a plane and blowing a kiss to the camera

5. wearing a shirt with a Vistara logo and a fluorescent safety jacket on top dancing to a popular DJ Snake song on an airport apron, with a plane seen in the background.

Do you believe this is regulator "over reach"?

They should add 6. Gyrating wildly on the captain's lap whilst he tries to land. I don't know how India's regulators missed that one, but as it's not on the list I guess it's ok.

More of a result of the culture IMO, being a flight attendant is a bit of a release from the traditional roles for young adults out there. You get away with a lot more because you don't still live with your parents, and it sounds like with a traditionalist government in place, enough people have leant on the DGCA to put up some silly regulation like this.

Hmmm.

Seems a bit of an overreach to me, but then again, I’m in no position to challenge a decision based upon cultural norms which differ from those where I live.

Perhaps a bit overreach by western standards. Then again I'm getting sick and tired of all these self proclaimed C/C stars of instagram and narcissistic hero F/o's of Youtube with tons of hairgel and big mirror sunglasses. Perhaps it's time to put them right and teach them respect to the profession… Or maybe I'm just getting old and grumpy… #crewlife, my a$$

Could be viewed culturally as flirtatious.
