Passengers on a recent Cebu Pacific flight got a bit of a surprise when flight attendants spiced up the in-flight safety demonstrations by busting out choreographed moves to Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” and Katy Perry’s “California Gurls”.
The Philipines-based airline has since drawn criticism from the Flight Attendants and Stewards Association of the Philippines (FASAP) who have said that they are “deeply perturbed” by the video.
“While it may look like a harmless publicity stunt to attract passengers at first glance, in the long run the stereotyping of flight attendants as entertainers will surely have a negative and sexist impact in the minds of the public, at the expense of the unwitting female-dancer-flight attendants,” said FASAP, the union claiming it has some 1,600 members.
The video, which was posted last Thursday, already has over 5 million views. What are your thoughts?
