Pilot applicants in China are having their armpits sniffed in interviews.

Interviewers are demanding that they check the armpits of the applicants to see if they suffer from body odour.

One tester in Taiyuan, Shanxi province said: "Our staff work very closely with the public and no passenger wants to smell a pilot's armpits.

"And if they can keep their cool in this test, they aren't going to sweat in the cockpit."

One rejected applicant was reported to have said: "I passed everything but I was doomed by my armpits, which are always a bit whiffy."

Other conditions included a maximum height of 6ft 2ins,  a "pleasant" face and a good grasp of the English language.

Good luck on finding many Chinese pilots that pass this requirement.

How about the (Jon’s and Jill’s), service crew - working with their hips close to my and hundreds of other passenger comrades “sniffer” during the whole trip?

Is somebody sniffing on them too? What a fluctuating job experience!

Life is mostly froth and bubble, but two things stand like stone. Kindness in anothers trouble, and .courage in your own. Annon.
