A Chinese airline has been under fire for their controversial 'rite of passage'.

BEIJING, CHINA-- According to reports, an airline based in South-West China practices a humiliating 'rite of passage' by cramming their new flight attendants inside an overhead compartment.

The photo of a woman in a flight attendant uniform lying in the narrow compartment area has quickly gained popularity and stirred a debate in the internet on whether or not the said 'rite of passage' is appropriate.



It was recently uploaded in the popular Chinese instant messaging app WeChat by user 'caccsky' along with the explanation that the ritual was practiced by neophyte attendants after their 30-50 hours of service.

"No newbie has been exempted, except for a few who are taciturn. But they were often stigmatized as ‘uncooperative’ and 'cocky'," the post stated.

As expected, the story was brought to light and soon enough, the airline itself was prodded to offer an explanation about the ritual.

Kunming Airlines based on Yunnan Province denied the allegations and claimed that they already conducted an investigation to find out and give due punishment to the people behind this.

In a statement issued, the airline said: "Such conduct is the personal behavior of certain cabin crew and security staff, which the airline has no knowledge of and never encourages."
