Only four transsexuals made it to the cut in order to fulfill their sky-high dreams.

Thai airline P.C. Air made headlines two months ago when they said that they will be accepting transsexuals as flight attendants.

Peter Chan, CEO of the airline, said that his advocacy for equal rights urged him to employ “third sex” flight attendants.

Among the 100 transsexuals who applied for the job, only four got lucky.

Furthermore, Chan  told the media that what he valued more among applicants are their abilities to communicate effectively and render excellent customer service.

One transsexual trainee of the airline said in an interview with Reuters that there was more pressure on their part since “people will be watching to see if [we] will be able to do this job.”

Also, Chan said that the application process for the transsexuals were more challenging because they have to “spend the whole day with them to make sure they have feminine characters.”
