    A Chinese budget airline is facing criticism after announcing plans to dress up its flight attendants as maids and butlers. Spring Airlines, operating out of Shanghai since 2005, said the idea actually came from its “international crew of qualified Chinese, Japanese and [Thai] cabin staff,” and is not intended to objectify them with revealing attire. But on social media and blogs, critics said the airline should focus on better pricing and on-time arrivals. Still, Spring Airlines will offer more costume-themed flights. Logically, the next one should honour housekeepers and janitors.

    Maybe if they did the whole anime dress up deal I could buy into that better.

    A costume photo suggests they're going after the anime style. Not much thinking required to see where they're going, but it's already succeeded. Mild fare (pun intended) in Asian LCCs, I suppose.
