Sexless costumes

Reader comment on item: Fashion at Turkish Airlines

Submitted by Edward Cline (United States), Feb 12, 2013 at 05:46

Looking at the last photo of the current uniforms, I'm surprised the women's faces and hands aren't covered. Still, I thought I was looking at a sample of costumes that weren't used in a Star Wars movie because they were too bland and certainly not as sexy as Carrie Fischer in her revealing harem costume. I'm betting that the AKP demands further uniform changes that conform to Turkey's renewed obsession with Islam. The male steward looks like he's wearing a shark skin suit of armor.
