You thought the ban of alcohol on certain flights was bad? Well today there’s news via Reuters that Turkish has banned their female flight attendants from wearing red lipstick or nail polish.
Turkish Airlines told Reuters the move was about “improved communication with passengers.” Hmmm…I guess it’s hard to understand someone with red lips?
I flew Turkish last year and really enjoyed the flight. Their business class was nice for a short-haul flight and the crew was very friendly, though I’d heard the opposite from some fellow travelers.
As the National Airline of Turkey, I suppose they can enforce any rules they want upon their staff, but I think it’s a bit extreme. I wonder if pink is okay?
What do you think?
