Some jobs really requires great body, not just a flight attendant but also aerobic instructor, dance instructor, swimming instructor and so on. This kind of job really requires a fitted and healthy kind of body.

We can't deny the fact that some of the jobs require great body especially for the flight attendant position. We all know that most of the stewardess are pretty and sexy since they are the one who fronts on all the passengers. I haven't seen any attendant with a heavy body.

I agree completely! I have seen large(r) flight attendants on various flights that I've taken - but they are definitely the minority. I also think it's a case of honoring the contract that you sign - if you (i.e. an Air India flight attendant) sign a contract stating you'll stay below a certain weight or you'll lose your job, then if you exceed that weight - and lose your job - it shouldn't be a surprise!

Have you ever seen a fat flight attendant in the U.S.? Nope... that's because we also have restrictions about weight and health here for flight attendants. Also, depending on the airline, the majority of flight attendants are required to wear make-up, have their nails well groomed, and their hair to be well taken care of. In each of those airlines individual flight attendant contracts there are rules that state there can be possible termination if all of those things are not held firm.

I'm not a part of the airline industry in India, but I'm certain they are holding a standard that is congruent with the rest of the industry. It sounds like a case of someone blowing something out of proportion.
