-It is a huge depart from the current color palette, but it is not bad. White shirts are not matching,
needs to be a different hue.
-Almost all five outfits not fitting the FAs.
-Guys uniform could very well be worn by Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan.
-Ladies coats, skirts length a foot too long.
-Ladies caps are not flattering.
-If you just look at the middle third of the photo, actually not that bad.
They are still working on it and this photo was shared by someone on the social media.

they don't look like they fit the models and look like it would be uncomfortable and annoying having to wear and work in them for so many hours.
Some of the design elements of the garments themselves I am not a fan of, Turtle necks? Really? who thought that would be a good idea. And the coats look to long.
However the colours I do like. I feel this ares is a big improvement on the current uniform, which is very generic looking and does not say "Turkish Airlines" I saw a Turkish crew walking through PEK last year, I had to follow them and see what aircraft they got on to work out who they were.

Boy I've been going crazy over this on twitter. There are like 3 trending topics over this and a big majority hates it.
It created so much discussion that TK and desiger said the outfits pictured are just a "study". Hideous, conservative, ottoman, unsafe. Thats my opinion.

First these were leaked photos and not the final version. As its being told there are 15-20 variations.
But ultimately in my view, I think its great TK wants to be different and not have generic uniforms.
Some of the most memorable airlines like Singapore or Gulf carriers have uniforms that are quite unique, and TK should also.
With this in mind, its would be very fitting to use history, use of colors and pattern that yes might have Islamic influences to create something unique or Turkish and not the bland uniforms 90% of the industry uses.
Anyhow as both the designer and company have mentioned this project is far from finished and these were not the final products.

Quoting JAGflyer (Reply 12): Way to conservative/religious looking for a country like Turkey. If they added a headscarf it would be suitable for Iran Air or Saudia.
That was my first thought as well... they could be Saudia's new uniforms. Even current Saudia's uniforms are more "sensual" since women wear pants, so they are tighter (yet they have their hair covered).
Yet Turkey is trying to be a regional powerhouse, and getting closer to other Gulf countries... IMO those new uniforms are very representative when you think that a national public airline is one of the ambassadors of any nation.

This is just horrible... A mix of overdone futuristic (Mr. Spock, men) and back to the 70's (women).
The mens uniform has a round cut turtleneck, while the vest and shirt underneath have a straight cut. Plus trouser, shirt, vest and jacket all have different grey tones.
The womens uniform look like a Christmas present wrapped in carpet; Raincoat variation looks like a Russian preacher, while the winter coat (?) variation looks like above mentioned carpet but sliced in half.
Gosh, what are they thinking?

If I worked for them I would think seriously about changing airlines, I am struggling for a good/nice word to say about about the whole outfit, male and female.
If the airline used a fashion consultant/agency they should be fired.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!
This is what TK's official twitter account wrote after the picture leaked and twitter exploded;
"Bir süre önce başlayan kabin kıyafeti tasarımlarımız henüz sonuçlanmamıştır. Sonuçlandığında sizlerle paylaşmaktan mutluluk duyacağız."
To translate; " we haven't concluded our cabin uniform designs that we have been working on for a while. We'll be glad to share it with you once its complete"

Well lets hope the final designs are a lot different than the above because those in the article are just unbelievable. For a company such as TK that is trying to aim for a progressive modern and professional product they really could not have got it more wrong. It looks like a group of folk dancers in the Balkans. They could have done so much better and incorporated Turkish design but this is an epic fail. Such a shame. The current uniforms are way way better than these proposed new ones.

2nd and 3rd models (1st and 2nd girls) look OK, somewhat reminds me of the BA uniforms.... But the other two girls look like they have their comforters wrapped around them. Very mediocre, very conservative.
: I rather like the women's outfits as well. Not at all a fan of the stewards though. Too busy.
: Bad. Awful. Terrible. No.. that couldn't be TK. No, please someone say it is a joke...
: Sorry, TK, but it looks like the uniforms were fashioned from the drapes and carpeting in my grandmother's house. I admire and respect the fact that T
: Judging from the picture... I like the current one better....!! I think these uniforms will be very uncomfortable to work with... And undeniably UGLYI
: I like the color pallet but the fit and shape needs to be worked on and they look way too covered up. Another issue with these uniforms is that they l
: Hideous... I don't see how the uniform would allow crew to carry out their duties... Hope TK have gone back to the drawing board... EK413
: GENTS, This is NOT the next uniform for TK. TK is in the progress of selecting a new uniform, and they are currently running a tender working with som
