Semi-OT - Flight Crew Uniform Quiz on the BBC

...how did you do?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/6211298.stm

EasyJet is ditching its distinctive orange uniform for a pinstripe one.

It hopes the new, smarter design will capture the business market.

It was easy to recognise those orange fleeces, but do you know the uniform for other airlines?

Oh dear, only 6 out of 10. I should hang my head in shame.

Although, in my defence, the uniforms were mostly female centric

7 - I beat you. Although most of them were guesses.

Although anyone that guessed Mongolian for number 9 needs a caning.

I scored a rather modest yet reassuringly non-anoraky six.

Now Smirnoff, just because Adam has a pierced nipple, it doesn't make him a slut.

6 - ha! Apparently I am 'experiencing some turbulence' according to the results. How they know I had a stinking hot curry last night is beyond me.

I wouldn't know. My name's not Mark. Thankfully.

6 of 10. Never flown Delta, but got it right - but it looks like I should fly with them

7 - some guesses.

Am I the only one who found the background helped in a couple?

9/10. That was fun. It's been a long time since I've seen any Delta uniform.
