Crossair, which belongs to the SAirGroup, is planning to hire between 40 and 80 men to add to its existing crew of 1,300 female cabin attendants.

The airline decided to hire the men because it was experiencing difficulties in recruiting women. The male attendants will serve aboard flights on which their female counterparts often experience problems with "macho" passengers.
