South Korea’s human rights commission has recommended that the country’s second-largest airline allow its female cabin crew to wear trousers, adding weight to a union campaign to ease strict dress rules.

The commission’s ruling represents a small victory for the 3,400 female flight attendants at Asiana Airlines.

Since last year, they have been asking the company to relax appearance requirements that range from how many hairpins they can wear to the length of their earrings.

Asiana is the only South
Korean airline with a no-trouser rule for its female flight attendants.
