'Sexy' BA Uniforms Slammed
- 'We're not dollies with trollies,' say staff

BRITISH AIRWAYS has run into trouble with its staff over a proposed new uniform designed to make air hostesses and hosts sexy.

The Transport and General Workers Union said its members were not "dollies with trolleys" and pointed out that many staff already suffer the unwanted sexual advances of leering passengers.

Big name designer Julien Macdonald appears unrepentant at his efforts to sex-up the flight industry. "Air-travel is a glamourous business and my aim is to create a uniform that reflects this," Macdonald said. "The girls will look sexy and the men will look like strong heroes. Sexy but practical."
