Of all the things that knock us over every day, the news of Turkish Airlines banning red makeup takes the cap!
Why? A rational mind would ask…
Well, bright makeup 'impairs visual integrity', they say!
Yes, before you think we are joking, Turkey's national airline has really forbidden flight attendants from wearing red lipstick and nail polish!
Any rational mind would beg to know why.
After all, it doesn’t really make sense, does it? Many fear this is an indicator of radicalization and Islamization of the Turkish society.
We hope not, so, hoping against hope, we sit with our heads together to work out why the Turkish airline’s management would have made such a rule?
Such loud makeup, they say provides distraction!
But we wonder would it be distracting the passengers or the staff, including the pilots? And if this is all it takes to distract, most of the flights since the 20th century should surely have ended in disaster.
But all of us wonder as much as we do, will never reach to the bottom of these mysteries the various us airlines keep throwing at us.
What can we say?
