Thai airline trains transsexual flight attendants

13 February 2011

Four Thai “‘ladyboys'” have been recruited as flight attendants for a start-up charter airline that says it will be Thailand’s first to include transsexuals among its cabin crew.

P.C. Air, which will fly to several Asian destinations starting in April, had its first training session this week for 30 recruits, including four from “the third sex.”

Thailand is known for its tolerance for transvestites and transsexuals, known locally as “‘katoeys'” or “‘lazyboys'”.
