Catfights, jealousy, rivalry and illicit affairs

Catfights, jealousy, rivalry, illicit affairs. Just another day for Thai flight attendants, or so a sexy new soap opera would have viewers believe.
The Air Hostess War focuses on an affair between a married pilot and one of the stewardesses on his plane.
But real Thai flight attendants are not happy about the soap, which they say demeans them.
“Even my own child looks down on me for having such a shameful career,” one flight attendant with Thai Airways, Benjamas Pooklomtuan, said. “I don’t know what to say to her.”And a union official, Noppadol Thaungthong, complained: “It’s all about sex and air hostesses beating each other up in the cabin because of love and jealousy. This kind of thing never happens.”
The programme’s makers have had to apologise to aircrew and promise to tone it down, after flight crews and their union took their grievance to the highest level in the land with an official complaint to the Thai government.
The programme will no longer feature short skirts longer or catfight scenes.
