My boss's girlfriend worked for Singapore Airlines (which is really well known at the best airline for trans-Pacific flights) and they are SO strict about the women who work there. They are weighed fairly regularly and if they gain weight, they're demoted or fired. Same goes for if they're pregnant. They only advertise for pretty girls, and they are reprimanded for not wearing makeup or otherwise doing things that detract from their beauty.
