“Ladyboys” provide marketing boost for new Thai carrier
A new Thai low-cost carrier is set to “fascinate and confuse” the likes of Alan Partridge by hiring four transsexual flight attendants.
Start-up PC Air, whose debut flight took between Bangkok and Surat Thani in Thailand in December, has gained publicity through awarding some cabin crew positions to “ladyboys”, after receiving more than 100 candidatures from transsexual applicants.
As a budget carrier it is unclear whether refreshments will be served on-board PC Air flights and if they are whether they will be Partridge’s famous ladyboy concoction of lager with gin and tonic followed by a Baileys Irish Cream chaser.
