Asiana flight attendants make news with bravery
FILE - This July 7, 2013 file photo shows Asiana Airlines Flight 214 flight attendant and cabin manager, Lee Yoon Hye, speaking to the media during a news conference in San Francisco. Before Asiana Flight 214 crash-landed in San Francisco, the last time the Korean airlines' flight attendants made news was over their union's effort earlier this year to get the dress code updated so female attendants could wear trousers. Now, with half of the 12-person cabin crew having suffered injuries in the accident and the remaining attendants receiving praise for displaying heroism during the emergency evacuation, the ill-fated flight is giving a lift to the members of a profession that has worked to be recognized for more than its uniforms and food service skills.
