This Flight Attendant is ‘Too Raunchy’ For Her Job?
Zuhal Sengul angered her Turkish Airlines managers when they saw her in low-cut tops and corsets in a Gothic-style photo shoots featured in an Italian magazine.
Furthermore, the discovery of a music video in which the tattooed flight attendant Ms. Sengul shows off her curves in a bikini was too much, with the airline firing the 31-year old as they move towards a conservative image, according to their statement.
“Simple make-up, immaculate and in pastel colors, is preferred for staff working in the service sector.”
The dismissal of Ms. Zuhal, who is a vegan campaigner with a black belt in karate, was probably influenced by a country’s shift towards more traditional Muslim values, with the president of the airline’s labor union saying that Turkey should be ‘more conservative, more religious’.
“This new guideline is totally down to Turkish Airlines management’s desire to shape the company to fit its own political and ideological stance.”
