It is true that the stewardesses on East Asian airlines look so much prettier than their counterparts on American-based airlines (even after taking in to account my preference for Oriental women). They are younger, prettier, thinner, and much friendlier. I once talked for several hours with a Japanese stewardess on a JA flight to Tokyo. On those trans-Pacific flights there are long stretches of time where the stewardesses don’t have too much to do I guess because she was free to talk a lot. It made the long flight pass so quickly.

Honestly, I don't see why people make such a huge fuss over the looks of a flight attendant. Majority of the FA's you deal with are extremely friendly as long as you just show them respect. That is what is important in my opinion, just a nice person , male or female, makes no difference to me.

In regards to the pilot, he sounds like an idiot.. but as long as he wasn't on the aircraft intercom, I don't think its that big of a deal. If the passengers didn't hear him, who cares.
