Why air stewardesses fail interviews in China

CHINA - In a country where there are literally millions of beauties, nearly any flaw will disqualify you from landing a job as an air stewardess.

Each year, thousands of hopefuls throng stewardess selection trials in China, hoping to make the cut to represent one of China's airlines.

With this many candidates to choose from, girls get cut for even the tiniest of imperfections.

Applicants are assessed on their looks, height, weight, absence of scars and even on whether or not they can straighten their arms properly.

The end result is a handful of picked service staff that conform to exacting specifications -- literally as perfect as the airline can make them.
