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."
One of the successful candidates was Thanyarat "Film" Jiraphatpakorn, who won the annual Miss Tiffany "katoey" beauty pageant in 2007. "At first I thought they would just take applications but not actually recruit us, as happened at other places before," said the 23-year-old, adding that she was delighted to have been chosen.

Bangkok specializes in sex change operations. I know someone who went over there to have it done. Good doctors, and much cheaper than getting it done here, as I understand it.
Never mind that you can’t change your sex—only have yourself mutilated. Evidently they’ve found it to be a profitable business.

Thailand, the only place in the world cruising bars is a risky occupation.
They need signs on some of those places.

Thai ladyboys are more female than most liberal American women.
Forget the ladyboys, there are plenty of extremely hot Thai women with the correct genitalia that can do the job.
If America ever wanted to revive the US airline industry, they should ditch all the politically correct BS, and contract the air hostess jobs to Thai, Singaporean, Malaysian and Japanese women.
Flying on one of those airlines in Asia is like being served by models, but models with class and good manners.
