SW has this picture on the plane, and then when you board, the FA's are as old as Greece. A lot of them a older Grandma types-meaning the myth of sexy "FA's" is long dead. Thank heavens.
As an female attorney who long remembers women being subjected to this kind of stupid sexual stereotyping, what's SW's point? Who does this appeal do? Supposedly they want to appeal to "business select?" That's me. As a legal professional-and female- I find it offensive. Maybe it's because the airline is from Texas; they don't seem to "get it". Different culture than NYC. It's not 1970 anymore and "business select" is not only male. Women are no longer just hot pants wearing cheerleaders, pin-up girls and bimbos. There are many women professionals and business travelers who will not find this type of in your face marketing tactic appealing-especially NY women professionals- like me. I think a more timely photo-something to say something about today's world, cultures and issues would have been better. This sends a weird message out there-an unfunny put down to women.
