Thousands apply for a flight attendant job

Who would have thought that getting a job as a flight attendant anywhere would be that hard. Well it seems in China it is indeed quite the process to even be considered as being suitable for applying for a job like this.

On November 28th Xiamen Airlines in China began auditions for those hoping to become a flight attendant for which thousands of young ladies, and some men, lined up. The auditions included a rigorous physical fitness test as well as a beauty lineup for both sexes.

The Xiamen Air flight attendant slogan roughly translates to: Shape first, body forward. All this applicant are hoping to fill the 300 positions that will be available this year.
