Meanwhile, another airline, AirAsia marked International Women’s Day yesterday with a trying-to-be-tongue-in-cheek ad: “Now taking reservations. The seat, not the girl”, which appeared in the Bangkok Post’s Spectrum magazine yesterday.

It showed a slender stewardess posing beside a seat on which was perched the sign: “I’m hot.”

Okay, we know what’s really being sold here – tickets for the seats right? But somehow, to me and many of my friends, both women and men, that I sent an image of the ad to, they didn’t think so.

Looks like women haven’t really a long way after all.
