Air hostess applicant 'had breasts checked for implants during job interview'

Dozens of women applying for air hostess jobs with an Indonesian airline were ordered to strip nearly naked and have their breasts handled in medical check-ups, one of the applicants claimed today..... This of course is a crock as breast implants are not compressible or decompressible unless they contain a lot of air. Saline types may have a little air bubble out of them but is of no consequence unless it is a large volume. Even then the capsule will withstand huge pressures. Sounds like… ( More...

I think it should be added to the preflight check list and made mandatory.

Many pilots have offer such examinations but it usually involved a few drinks on an overnight

The TSA is doing it, Mike. But they are saving us from fate worse than death. Very patriotic.

whats next pregnancy tests for men who want to become pilots
But are they going to check further down to ensure we don't get any 'Ladyboys" ??? I would think that is more important
Why did I know this squawk would reconvene Tailhook? Richard so far wins the Tailhook Honorary Comment Award but caption nominations are still open.

At least the guy (I assume it was a male) didn't do the IUD check.

Since I don't know if 'Tracy Sear' is a male or female let me ask this: why are there only males that are responding to this procedure? Outside of possible 'bomb implantation', what else is the purpose?
Tracy Sear 0
No purpose at all, except to further subjugate their employees by demonstrating their power over them through humiliation and intimidation. Maybe also live the dream that some of the more juvenile posters on this thread are experiencing. I'm female, and that fact is probably pretty apparent here.

...I'm female and I thought some of these comments were pretty funny. I mean, yeah, what Garuda is doing is pretty messed up and invasive, but. It also doesn't hurt to have a chuckle or two at a few tongue-in-cheek comments regarding the incident.

Tracy: I agree. Richard I too am a "tail hooker". I am a respectable man. I have never taken part in anything immoral. The question I must ask is what these gals' partners did about this assault.

I hope that at least /some/ kind of action was taken against it.

In that country? Probably nothing. It's not the U.S., no legal or union protections.

I rented a car in Jakarta and was advised to "check the hooter" before leaving. I thought "What a country!"
Sad all around both the article and comments. You may find humor but I gather these hostesses were probably demoralized. Women aren't the only people getting implants if I may add.

They might think she is a terrorist with explosive liquid in them and not saline?
I'm surprised the TSA hasn't thought of doing this too...
