Myanmar stories - Air Bagan flight stewardesses are the prettiest

I met a tall and slim fair Myanmar lady who speaks good English and is working in Singapore on an S Pass. I asked her about "Save The Children" organisation in Myanmar as I had seen some poster of this organisation at pre-schools built by the NGO. She said she had a friend working there and would provide me with some info.

"Do you know about Air Bagan, Myanmar Airways, Yangon Airways and a new airline with red black colours?" I asked. "I flew by Air Bagan from Yangon to Heho Airport recently to tour Inle Lake. In some Western-printed tourist guide books on Myanmar like some editions of The Lonely Planet, some airlines are mentioned not to be supported by the tourists. I find this strange as tourism benefits the ordinary people by providing jobs."

She said: "I was working for MAI and yes, I know about the airlines. Air Bagan employs the prettiest air stewardesses!"

"Why?" I asked.
"Air Bagan does not employ relatives unlike ...."
Well, this was a surprise comment to me as I did not expect a lady to comment on the external appearances of stewardess. Beauty in a female still matters a lot in this commercial world.

In any case, the travel agent books Air Bagan for me on the two times I visited Lake Inle and so I cannot confirm whether the other airlines have less pretty stewardess.
