The Japanese Football Association (JFA) has been accused of sexism after flying it men's Olympic team on business class and the women on economy.
and this is what I find most offensive...
The JFA upgraded the men's team to business class as it has done since 1996.
They had also upgraded the women but only to premium economy. The JFA has defended its decision saying the business class seats for the men is recognition of their professional status.
What a total poor attempt at spin. They are off to the Olympics which is traditionally an amateur event and the honor representing your country. To segregate the players based on gender is outrageous. Treat them both the same - same sport, same country, same Olympics. If you can't afford Beautiful Class for both teams, then they all have to go into Premium Economy.
This is just poor especially as the Women have a much higher chance of a medal than the men.
