Cabin crews from Hong Kong Airlines practise Wing Chun, a concept-based Chinese martial art or Kung Fu, during a lesson in Hong Kong Saturday, April 30, 2011. A Hong Kong airline makes all its cabin crews to take Wing Chun lessons as helping them to build the team spirit and to learn self-defense, as young and pretty female flight attendants often become the easy targets for sexual harassment and aggression from passengers.  (Pictures picked from IFENG)

In the meantime, Hong Kong Airline has also made a TV commercial featuring Wing Chun Kung Fu to promote its new branding campaign “Fresh, very Hong Kong”.

      Not really – they’re being taught Wing Chun so they are more able to defend themselves on the job. What do they wear while working?
