    The flight attendants of South Korea's Asiana Airlines have had enough of dated regulations. Chiefly, they want to get rid of outdated uniform regulations that keep them in uncomfortable and impractical skirts, CNN Go reports.

    According to CNN, the flight attendants' union is filing a complaint to the National Human Rights Commission, addressing gripes like rules dictating that female flight attendants cannot wear pants, that they cannot wear glasses or that their nails must always be manicured.
    "We understand that we have a certain image to pursue, but we believe that the most important function of our uniform is to assist our passengers," union head Kweon Soo-jeong told the agency.

    Does KE permit female FAs to wear pants as part of their uniforms or is the skirt shown in their ads required?

    skirts are only impractical if they are too long....
