Most unflattering FA uniforms
 
This is a subject that would almost never occur to me, but as I was flying yesterday on EK I thought, wow that's one attractive FA - in perhaps the most hideous uniform I've ever seen. It is sort of a pasty flesh color, doesn't seem to fit well below the waist, bunches up in the back, and looks like it wrinkles easy. Even the male FA's on the flight weren't spared - IMO their pants look a little bit overly baggy and cheap.

Any worse uniforms out there?

AA

Like I've recounted before. I once watched a KL and LH crew pass me in a terminal at DFW. Every person looked like they stepped off a fashion runway. Then I passed an AA crew. It looked like a senior citizen bus headed to the bingo parlor after stopping off at the Salvation Army thrift store. The one piece smocks are especially unflattering. Each crew member can mix and match their uniform leading to a very disorganized look. Whatever material they use seems to wear quickly leading to a threadbare appearance to an outdated design.

EDIT: A site with FA uniforms.

Iberia had those orange puke colored skirts. Now they have a better uniform.
I don't like also Asiana uniform, at least when they are beside the Korean Air ones.

Does BA still have those ugly shirts and blouses? I haven't patronized BA in several years.

Far and away, the most attractive uniforms (and FAs occupying them) to pass through DFW are the KE ones. They really put the AA flight crews to shame.

EK crew often refer to their uniforms as "brown paper bags with red lipstick".

OZ's uniform to me is ok, but their hats are just downright ugly. I asked one of the FA why the back of their hats are like a triangle, she told me it is resemblence of OZ's plane tail, how odd the design is !

Besides, their uniforms are actually reflect to their old color scheme, it matches that yellowish brown outside the plane.

Ever since age and weight limits for FAs were lifted in the '60s, I'm afraid the problem is not just the uniforms...

That depends on who you're flying. That EK flight crew was smoking, even with the bad uniforms.

The smocks are actually made to be worn by pregnant FAs. Maybe that is why it is so unflattering!

Nice site. The AA uniforms from 71-73 look like they could be a party dress. Pretty scant.
