Will Alex get some designer Hi-Viz?

I just hope whatever is produced is done so in consultation with the staff who will actually have to wear it so that it is smart yet practical and that it fits properly!

Yes, he was associated with the VS amenity kits some years back, I think it was after Space:NK were involved. I have a few of the Boateng kits and they had some really rather nice cufflinks in.

This really is moving the deck chairs. Of all the things that need looking at, this would be last on my list.

Will the uniforms be wi-fi linked so they can lose more data?

I don't think BA has the otaku trying to acquire their uniforms by any means they can, like JAL does, so that sort of tracking is probably unnecessary.

You're right - for a start they could bring in new CW seats next year, revamp the CW catering service and bedding, invest in new aircraft, refurbish old aircraft with new Y and WT+ seats, launch new routes... oh, hang on

i would be very grateful if the new design caters for, dare I say, the fuller figures on many staff (CC and Ground Agents). What looks great at the presentation to the Board by “Jenny, 23, 34-22-35” isn’t going to work across the entire organisation.

I’m sure that will offend some, but it has to be said ... there are some BA staff who do NOT fit into the current outfit, and when some bend down to get things from the Galley carts the view can be quite revolting.

i disagree. Itís because most of them wonít go up a size, to the one that actually fits them. Iím slim
and the uniform is like a clown outfit, itís so baggy. The trousers are ridiculous. I hope they cater to those of us that donít scoff three club puddings at 3 in the morning
