Wizz Air branded ‘sexist’ over scantily-clad woman on plane safety card

A WIZZ Air passenger has accused the airline of sexism because of the illustrations on their plane safety cards.

The drawings feature a woman going through the safety procedures in a very tight, short dress.

Wizz Air have been accused of sexism for using a scantily clad woman on the safety card

Twitter user Laura Watkin wrote: “Really @wizzair?! Surely the bare legs would result in serious chafing on the emergency slide? #jobsforwomen #everydaysexism #bodycon #stereotype.”

In the images, the woman is spotted putting her life jacket on, opening the emergency door and leaving the plane – all while sporting a short, tight-fitting dress.

Another twitter user replied: “Good grief!”

Laura isn’t the first to notice the woman’s inappropriate attire, with another passenger calling out the sexism: “Why does @wizzair feel the need to draw cleavage on this safety guide? @EverydaySexism”

Passenger Antonio tweeted earlier this year: “Still on @wizzair.. What’s with safety leaflets? The hostess portrayed here is a very sexy one, I’d say TOO SEXY even.

“A bit of sideboob makes the cut here.

“My favourite one is this, where you can [see] some cleavage possibly, but again lots of boobs.”

Another remarked: “Interesting @wizzair safety instruction card. In some of them it looks like the stewardess hasn’t got any clothes on!”

Twitter user Pablo said: “@wizzair do you think that the woman on your safety card is a little over sexualised?? #Bootilicious”

Another person joked: “Whoever designed the @wizzair safety procedures card should probably have had a cold shower first.”

Other airline safety cards, such as British Airways and Ryanair, feature less revealing passengers who wear more appropriate clothing,

A recent plane safety card mix up led to terrified passengers thinking they were on a Boeing 737 Max 8 after the planes were all grounded.

Thankfully the Norwegian safety cards were simply a standard on all flights, not just on Boeing 737s.
