The airline would like to get rid of flight
attendants over 45 years to save money, but only for women.
The transition will be achieved through voluntary departures to Thailand to avoid being accused of age discrimination, according to an article at the Bangkok Post.
Flight attendants who worked for 15 years should be offered a lump sum of up to 30 months’ salary.
The airline has 400 male stewards over 45, but these are not included in the regeneration plans.
