Air India has so tastefully fired 10 women flight attendants who were grounded last year for being overweight. Originally, the women received a mere warning, were given sufficient time to lose weight, and were offered alternative ground assignments. How kind. Last year, Delhi High Court upheld Air India's right to reassign overweight attendants. A lawyer who is representing the "overweight" crew is taking the case to the Supreme Court.
