Chinese Cabin Staff Wear Brazilian Colours To Join World Cup Mania

Chinese Cabin Staff Wear Brazilian Colours To Join World Cup Mania

Flight attendants aboard a domestic airline in China which is not in the World Cup have managed to get in on the spirit anyway - by donning the Brazilian colours.

Female staff on Lucky Air jetliners sport the host nation T-shirts and skirts while serving passengers at 36,000 feet.

With China ranked 103rd in FIFA rankings, one spot behind Equatorial Guinea, it is not in the tournament. So the management of the airline decided that the staff would root for the hosting nation - and World Cup favourites - during the games.

Chen Lee, a passenger on Lucky Air between Shanghai and the capital Beijing, said: "I think they look really cool. Chinese people are mad about football, me included, and if you are going to root for a team, I think it might as well be the favourites.

"The colours look good on the women and they seem really happy to wear them. I hear that in Japan there is an airline where the women have taken to wearing the national colours too."

Su Ma-Ching, an attendant aged 19, said: "We love the outfits. Brazilian women are so sexy, these outfits make us feel sexy too!"

Despite its lack of soccer success, China has gone World Cup bonkers, with businesses reporting rising absentee rates among workers who are phoning in sick - but suspected of putting their feet up at home to watch their favourite games.
