I was wondering which carrier in your opinion have the best flight deck uniforms. I believe Delta with the double breasted jackets and gold epaulet's look pretty sharp.

Agree with TRENT500. BMI uniform is indeed very smart. Thai Aiways & Emirates uniform are also very attractive.
Can anyone provide links where I can view pilot uniform designs of different airlines ?

The late Indonesia Airlines' original flight crew uniform was interesting...
Grey shirt, white bars on the epaulettes... made it look like it came out of a futuristic 1970s movie! However that uniform only lasted a few months... back to the standard stuff...

I agree with Fokkerf28 110%. I have always thought DL's were sharp looking.

They just look mre professional, and more of a "completely confident" look.

I have to be completely partial, and vote Delta's uniforms. The double breasted Navy coat, gold buttons, stripes (which go smartly around half the sleeve), the wings, nametag, and caps just ROCK. Even the summer outfit, which is just minus the coat, is very professional. Pax, I think, would rather see a pilot who looks like he owns the skies...and doesn't show up lookin like he's chillin in a leasure suit.  Big grin

DeltaGuy Big thumbs up

Delta. Everytime I see a Delta pilot I think to myself "Damn that is sharp." The black, double breasted suits with the gold accents and stripes really look nice. Nice hat, too. Sort of brings back the old romantic days of air travel.

I like FedEx uniforms. The pilots have really cool leather jackets that remind of the old days of aviation, kinda brings back some of the luster.

I don't pay much attention to uniforms, but I kind of like the fact that the Asian carriers have their pilots wear gloves.

Very classy.

Cancidas, thanks for the great link!!!

I'm very surprised by the Asian carriers uniforms. I was expecting something more professional looking but I guess I'll have to fly there to judge it in person someday!

I loved Virgin and Alitalias the most though.
