Garuda Indonesia on Wednesday denied allegations by a South Korean job applicant that male doctors were examining aspiring flight attendants’ breasts to detect any implants.

Pujobroto, the flagship carrier’s corporate secretary, said the routine medical examination that formed part of the recruitment process did not involve a breast examination.

“It is not true that we have hired a … doctor to give breast examinations to check whether or not applicants have breast implants,” he said.
