Are Japanese flight attendants cashing out by selling their bodies to pilots? Learn about an intricate prostitution scheme 10,000 feet in the air.
According to the Shukan Post, recent wage cutbacks have caused many Japanese flight attendants to turn to sleeping with pilots to earn extra income to recoup their financial losses.
Over the last decade the average salary earned by Japanese flight attendants has seen a significant decline, decreasing from the average yearly earning of about $42,000 in 2004 to just $33,000 as recently as 2013.
These Japanese flight attendants who risk dabbling in the oldest profession 30,000 feet in the air are reportedly doing so through an intricate system involving a senior stewardess who serves as an in air madam brokering the money for sex deals.
Flight attendants willing to engage in such bad behavior give their numbers to a senior flight attendant who effectively serves a a “pimp” liaison to pilots willing to take advantage of the economical hardships faced by these flight attendants. There is even a system of hand signals employed by interested pilots to communicate their lurid desires and amount they will pay. Little is known yet if the use of terms such as”cleared for landing,” or “landing strip” have caused massive miscommunication and horrible embarrassment among airline employees and travelers alike.
Flight attendants who engage in such illicit in air activities are known as soochoowadesu and are also known to work as party companions or bar hostesses in Tokyo’s Ginza district, Tokyo’s upscale area known for being one of the most luxurious shopping districts in the world. Others will even outsource their services through other companies, including some that specialize in offering air hostess “experiences.”
There also seems to be a shelf life for those involved in these mile high club exchanges, as those under making the most money it seems are all under the age of 30.
