A drama on air

A Thai television soap has come under fire after the Thai airlines trade union expressed disappoval with the way airline staff, particularly female flight attendants, have been portrayed on the programme. They accused “War of Angels“, the alleged TV series, of demeaning their image; they said that the show misrepresented them by showing scenes of the attendants fighting in the airline uniform with immoderately tiny and short skirts.

The producer rushed to defend the programme by calling the action of the union somewhat exaggerated. He said that he would never withdraw the programme and apologised for allowing some inappropriate scenes to be broadcast on television. The show is meant for entertainment and the story is entirely fictitious. He promised that, from now on, he and his team will make sure that the programme depicts no gratuitous acts of violence between flight attendants. It is only a soap opera, which is not much different from the usual, hackneyed Thai TV series.
