Skip to comments.Newly-formed Thai airline recruits "Ladyboys" as air hostesses

PC Air, which has yet to take to the skies, selected three "Ladyboys" in its first round of hiring this week to promote equal opportunities for what is dubbed the "third sex" in Thailand.
Peter Chan, the new airline's boss, is enthusiastic about his groundbreaking move because of the opportunities it would afford transsexuals.
"I think these people can have many careers not just in the entertainment business and many of them have a dream to be an air hostess," he said. "I just made their dream come true. Our society has changed. It's evolution. I'm a pioneer and I'm sure there will be other organisations following my idea."
Thailand has the largest number of "katoeys" as they are called in Thai in the world, with the country's surgeons pioneering cheaper and quicker sex change operations because of the sky-high demand from men wishing to become women.
But PC Air did not make proof of sexual reassignment a criteria for the job, merely that the applicants possessed the necessary language skills and the potential to provide good service.
The transsexual flight attendants will wear special gold-coloured "third sex" name badges to help passengers and immigration staff to easily identify the gender they are faced with.

The Katoys are as good looking as the young ladies ... and better dressed and groomed
Elton John just found a new favorite airline
I’ve found another name for the “Won”!!!!
"so this fat, black cast member with 30 Rock boards Thai Air..."
well, I’m not surprised they look better. It always seemed like they didn’t want to be real women. They wanted to be extreme women. More fabulous and feminine than the real thing. They may look womanly, but it’s still a costume, a play-acting, somehow.
I am truly sorry that they don’t love the person they really are, as God made them.
At first glance, one often can’t tell the difference.
Now if only they could get rid of that pesky ‘Y’ chromosome...
Badges? They don't need no stinkin' badges.
Just look for an Adam's apple.

This custom in Thailand goes back about a thousand years or so. These people are nothing like the freaks we have here in San Fan or New York. The katoeys are an honored segment of Thai society and have been for many generations.
can’t wait til we have ladyboy Hooters here in the states....that way the homos can legitimately recruit in our HS....afterall, Hooters is a really good American career.....good enough for our 18 yro dtrs and good enough for our 18 yro sons...../sarcasm/
And nothing else.
A sky-high demand from men who want to become women?! HOLY S**T!How many of them are there?
That’s not evolution.. it’s mutilation.
