Anybody else think it eerily ironic that these new uniforms look awfully alike to those worn by the crew of the Titanic?....

I was expecting a uniform in line with the J* design...

Those white hats won't last long...

Where's the white shoes to match?

Mehh

Apart from the hat (which makes me look like a milkman) I can't see too much of a problem.

I don't think the hat has been well thought out, as I can't imagine many will stay that white for very long. I like the overcoat, as long as I can get it in extra-long, get kind of a "matrix" thing happening (spoilt once again, by the hat). New wings are okay, reminds me of the old Qlink wings. At the end of the day, I'm not paying for it, my ego isn't driven by wearing "really cool stuff", so my care factor is pretty low.

In any case, I've never been a fan of the old-style uniforms and consider them a relic of a bygone era; totally out-dated. I really liked the old Virgin uniforms and was sorry to see them go when Borghetti took over.


DIVOSH!

I like it, very retro. Makes a nice change from the boring straight black.

What a disaster! Martin Grant clearly didn't get the brief on designing a MODERN uniform! The hats are an utter disgrace!

If ever I get cast for a part in The Love Boat or Pirates of Penzance I'll already have the costume

It's absolutely appalling.

I can't see a single redeeming feature.

White hats? Fabric wings on the shirt?

WTF were they thinking?

It is cringeworthy!

With their Middle Eastern shareholding I expect them to have the female staff also moving closer to a version of the penguin style suits to cover them up.

Was there ever a canvassing of all crew on their thoughts as to the new uniform they'd all be expected to wear?

Of course there was. They just didn't listen to any of it.

Appalling.

It looks gay and that's from my daughter. The Kangaroo symbol reminds me of the Lufthansa Crane. Wings are an insult, like something someone would design that never had to earn. I will look like a porter from the thirties on the orient express. White gloves will make it complete.

I just want you all to know that when you ridicule my uniform as I walk through the terminal, I will have no comeback...

Ugh...

Thanks mate. At least I now know you guys didn't vote it up, cause it looks absolutely atrocious. Kinda mocks the profession a little.

Come on ruprecht, I won't say a thing. But you better say hello when next you are in town.

I understand that hats, wings, slides, jacket and socks are all optional.

The white hat looks great, matches your hair.
