It’s no longer about grounding planes, it’s about grounding air stewards for a Turkish airline!

Turkish Airlines has grounded 28 flight attendants for being overweight and given them six months to slim down or face reassignment!!

“Weight and height are important factors at all airlines. These criteria are important both in terms of appearance and the ability to move about,” Turkish Airlines reportedly said in a statement to its crew.

I kinda understand — I say it’s either that or they have to also pay for the extra luggage surcharge!!

Oh give me a break! So tired of society singling out the weight challenged people.

Fix the unobtainable images imposed on us at a young age! Stop photoshopping plus size model’s photos to make them look thinner!

If we stop feeding the weight phobia machine and put the resources allocated to that towards programs boosting youngster’s self esteem the world would be quite different.

Now that I stopped my ranting, I am going to get something in the fridge to eat!

I have to agree completely with you on this one… now where is my bowl of chips!
