    Female flight attendants in Hong Kong are demanding the right to wear pants.

    The Cathay Pacific Flight Attendants Union has called for an end to the "skirt-only" policy of the city's flag carrier. 

    The union's chair, Vera Wu, argued that the image of female flight attendants – who are also required to wear full make-up – was old-fashioned and sorely in need of an update.

    Inkstone talked to people on the street to see what they think of the flight attendants' demand.
