This Norwegian Airliner’s rule is “embarrassing” according to Norwegian Labour Party’s Women’s Federation spokesperson Anette Trettebergstuen, but it remains in their rule book, at least for now.
According to the Telegraph, the low-cost, long-haul carrier, which serves 152 destinations worldwide and transports more than 33 million passengers per year, requires female cabin crew to wear heels unless they have a doctors note.
Not only that, but the heels must be at least two centimeters tall and make-up is compulsory.
This is not the policy for all airlines, in fact, Virgin Atlantic recently reduced the requirement for flight crew makeup, a major step forward.
Many airlines are also now fine with female cabin crew wearing trousers, so the airline requirement for high heels at all times does seem somewhat archaic.
