Female cabin crew applicants had to strip so recruiters could check for scars, birthmarks or tattoos, report says


  • Male candidates were told the airline only hired men from Kuwait, El Diario reported
  • Kuwait Airways applicants say they were ordered to strip to their underwear at a recruitment event.
  • Recruiters rejected women with glasses, moles or visible scars, Spain's El Diario reported.

Women hoping to become flight attendants with Kuwait Airways say they were ordered to strip down to their underwear so that recruiters could inspect their bodies, a Spanish newspaper reported.

Mariana, 23, told El Diario she was asked to strip to her bra, skirt, and pantyhose while a female recruiter wrote comments in a notebook: "I felt like an animal in the zoo."

The incident took place at a hotel in Madrid, Spain, in November during a recruitment event organized by Meccti, which describes itself as the world's largest cabin crew recruitment agency.
