We did have "stewardesses of old" with height, weight and age restrictions. I was so glad when that went the way of the passenger pigeon. Next it will be only slim passengers allowed on the planes. I for one, am glad I do not fly those airlines.

Wow - thanks to everyone who noted and put the article onto the front page. Yes, I remember the bad old days too. But at present, does anyone really believe, despite their quoted numbers and their eliminaton of drinking water, that this is the real reason for the change? Read your own comment, David C - you have included "looks." Connie included age. Will they be flight attendants or Barbie dolls?
As to passengers, my guess is that they will surcharge passengers 5¢ per hour per kilo for every kilo of weight over (exact figure to be determined).
