Question About Steward's Uniform!

When I flew for LIM to BON last october I noticed a steward with his uniform.
The uniform has 4 stripes just like the captain's.
Here is a picture that I took from the other end of the A/c where I was sitting hence its bad quality. You can however clearly see the 4 stripes.

Is this the boss of all the stewards ?
If yes, is there anywhere I can find the meaning of each numer of stripes?(eg like the ones with only 2 of them)

Regards BM

They do this with ground staff too - KLM evidently like their stripes! I've seen ground staff at LHR with 1 stripe and 2 stripes, and possibly 3?

Or just maybe the co-pilot was helping on that flight. That happens occasionally when the autopilot is on.  Wow!

Silver stripes = cabin crew
1 = cabin attendant
2 = cabin attendant World Business Class
3 = junior purser/lead
4 = purser/lead

Gold stripes (broad) = cockpit crew
1 = trainee (? not sure)
2 = co-pilot/first officer in training
3 = co-pilot/first officer
4 = captain

Gold stripe (same width as cabin crew) = ground staff
1 = ? (doesn't exist?)
2 = gate agent
3 = teamleader gate handling; ticket agent; load controller
4 = supervisor ticketing (a.o)

Is the uniform the same at Cityhopper?

I think it looks smart, I flew with KL back in July and noticed that the purser had stripes, I think its a nice way of showing rank in the cabin although no doubt it confuses people  Wink

AS has the one stripe on their jacket in green (I think...) and HP has it on their jackets too (In dirty gold/teal). FA's and CSA/CSR's have them.
