    At the other extreme, I was on a flight recently and one of the female cabin crew looked anorexic, like one of these ‘size 0’ models, her clothes were hanging off her, she looked like a 12 year old child, and not even a healthy one. She was plastered in make up which probably disguised a pallid and unhealthy looking skin. She was wearing a short sleeved blouse and her arms were skeletal.

    Perhaps it’s because we are more used to seeing overweight people than grossly underweight, but there was something scary about that girl, and I would rather have seen an overweight FA in her place. I dare say that some people would have found her very attractive but both I and the man sitting next to me thought she was quite the opposite.
