For females it is two. You will be required to remove footwear and you are permitted to stand on tip toes.

Males may leave their shoes on and are not permitted to stand on tip toes.

The reach requirement is 212cm which is 6.9 feet, I suggest having someone use a tape measure to measure you standing upright on tip toes with both arms up high.

minimum arm reach is 212 CM ( on tip toes )

and you only need to reach that point with 1 arm to can pass that reach test .
they might as well require you to take off your shoes ( if you're in high heels ) .

good luck

for Emirates , you must be able to reach 212 cm
for Etihad , you must be able to reach 210 cm

and you will need to reach it with 1 arm on top toes ..

don't be confused

just try to make that test at hope .. put a tape on a wall and try to reach it . see if you can make it or not ...

yeah they told us we could do both hands or one... some girls couldnt reach without shoes, so make sure you try at home first... i never tried since im 5'9 already haha, for once in my life i was happy to be tall... but a lot of the tiny girls reached with ease... actually surprised me that some of the 5'2 girls also reached with total ease... :)
just make sure that your finger visibly goes over the line... if its touching the line, they wont accept it unless it visibly corsses it

I'm only 5'3. I passed the reach test easily it was 210. So I'm guessing u shouldn't worry. Stretch to the maximum and u'll be fine.
