Staff have six months to hit their target waist measurements (32in for women, 35in for men) and BMI (25 for women, 27.5 for men).

Teerapol has confounded his critics by explaining the measure thus.  It’s actually a foolproof way of ‘improving the personality of flight attendants’.

You couldn’t make it up.
