Air travel implies certain basic truths: the defiance of gravity, the company of strangers and the ups and downs of the in-flight menu.
All bets are off when it comes to cabin crew outfits, though. When it comes to what their employees can, cannot, or must wear, some airlines choose the standard attire, while others go all out.
The number one uniform from last year has dropped five spots on this year’s list. The Emirates uniform, while widely recognizable throughout the world, is in serious need of an overhaul. The color scheme of beige and brown is more OAP than VIP, and the “winter coat” that Emirates now requires its cabin workers to wear in chilly weather is anything but attractive. Another bad fashion choice is wearing a waistcoat with a cutesy cardigan.
This iconic Emirates uniform can be seen in the photo above. It is distinguished by its beige and red pinstripe fabric as well as by its fabled red hat and wʜɪᴛe veil. It was uncharacteristically developed by an English uniform firm, when most airlines go with fashion designers, and it was released in 2009. It was difficult because Emirates had 23,000 cabin crew members to dress at the time.
They desired a polished, professional appearance with refinement and wanted the uniform to be highly noticeable at an airport. The design team observed cabin crew on a flight to Nᴇᴡ Zᴇᴀʟᴀɴᴅ to really understand how the fabric needed to be flexible yet sturdy to complete the tasks of the crew. They were also aware of the importance of the uniform’s public image. It is still of the most recognizable airline uniforms in the world and was introduced simultaneously with the new Airbus A380 fleet.
