McCann Erickson is running a global campaign for Cathay Pacific showing its staff on and off duty.
Clearly this has alarmed everybody apart from maybe passengers who, in the words of one YouTube commentator, would prefer their pilots to be relaxed and stress-free.
These Eastern airlines are always majoring on their pretty cabin staff, all submissive and geisha-like. So is what you see what you get?
Reminds me of a funny comment over the weekend about former US president Bill Clinton’s trips on Air Force One. This was something along the lines of: ‘we’re coming in to land, please put the cabin staff in an upright position.’
Goodness knows what effect all this will have on Virgin Atlantic’s rascally Sir Richard Branson and his thoughts about his next campaign. Those red-suited, high-heeled Virgin cabin staff will be leaving in droves.
