Great news! On 15 February, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) announced that they were banning the sexist Ryanair advert promoting “Red hot fares and crew”.

More than 11,000 people joined you in signing Ghada’s petition -- Ryanair have frequently been guilty of sexist advertising in the past, but after today they know they can’t get away with objectifying their female staff to sell their services.

I'm a member of an airline Cabin Crew and what's more I love my job.   My work colleagues, many of whom are male, work hard with me to ensure the safety of our passengers. Safety is our number one priority, not the brand of our underwear. 

Ryanair need to have these types of adverts banned.
 
We have come a long way from seeing women purely in a sexual way as opposed to a professional way.  No other profession would get away with depicting women in this way. 
 
In the new Pan Am series, Christina Ricci says to a customer with wandering hands, "I'm not included in the price of your ticket".  Too right!

      Why is it that women are not only used as commodities in marketing but they also have the photos digitally changed to show an impossible 18" waist?

      It is a retrograde step to portray women in this way in 2012. Disgraceful and demeaning to professsional women and educated men alike.

      I will not fly with such an airline that uses sexist ads, and promises blowjobs, and what's more will not let my husband fly with it.
