You don't, at least if that's the reason. Those are certainly NOT Delta FAs in the picture.

Obviously based on a wasted University Challenge question.

Paxman : "And now the picture question identify which airline these uniforms are from No Conferring".

Ding.

Ms BigThingies : "It's .... er .... France Air"

Paxman : "Of course not it's Mahan Air from Indonesia, Next ...."

Ding.

Mr NouveauHippy : "Looks like that Australian one, what's it called, something like Quintupas or whatever".

Paxman : "Good grief even I knew it was Horizon Air from Seattle, Next...."

Ding.

GeekyGeorge : "Hemus Air from Bulgaria"

Paxman : "Mainline or Commuter ....?"

GG : "Mainline"

Paxman : "Bad luck it's Commuter, And Last...."

Ding.

NigelNitwit : "AAAAmerican AAAAirlines"

Paxman : "If you're going to sneeze don't press your bell...."

I'm not sure I know the answer to that question.

But I could Phone a Friend.
Or we could Ask The Audience.

Oh my god! 9 out of 10! Should be proud or embarressed?

Admittadly, some I guessed. Some resembled the colour schemes of the airlines themselves. I liked the Air France uniform the most. And what is up with the Delta uniform (the only I got wrong)? They actually wear that?

8/10 with some (educated) guessing. I think if you know the colors of the national flags you can get a few that you might not otherwise. Missed Delta, too, though I should have known better.
