Catalan football giant Barcelona has requested all-female cabin crews during flights with official sponsor Turkish Airlines due to the extreme interest male attendants usually show in the players, Airporthaber has reported.
 
Male flight attendants constantly ask for autographs and jerseys from globally loved players like Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta, something that has ultimately become a problem for team officials.
 
Turkish Airlines has therefore granted Barcelona a handpicked crew, made up of 20 female flight attendants, to accompany the players during their flights.

Long live Spaniards . Your wish always perceived as an order .THY will recruite all female crew , consists of mostly from women national football players . (few days ago Turkish women national team lost 10-0 against Germany - this time after heavy defeat they are called Golden Gooses. ) To work for THY would rehabilitate them and would be better also for Barca from the point of tactical sense. Any other wish ? Oh,yes. Female camels....!!!

REDTAIL That would be too logical! This is football we are talking about remember? There is no "proper". The funny thing is that the women will be asking for the exact same favors for their boyfriends! Better to send in the Burkasor even headscarves because surely those gals will not have any boyfriends.

Bravo Faruk. I vote for burkas. After all we know the REAL reason they want female crew don't we. So they can flirt with the crew.

Why not simply ask the staff to behave properly. To replace all men does not seem fair.
