Turkish Airlines has told 28 flight attendants that they must shape up or ship out.
The employees — 15 men and 13 women — have been given six months to lose weight. In the meantime, they’ve been placed on unpaid leave.
If the crew members fail to lose sufficient weight, they will be taken off flights and assigned to ground positions.
“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 said in a statement.
