The Braniff uniforms of the late 70's-early 80's. I wasn't around to see the uniforms of the 60's, I wish I could have.

My favourites - easy.

First place: Qantas' 1980s uniform by Yves St. Laurent in royal blue, gold, scarlet and black, with kangaroo-print blouse.

Second place: The 1988 British Airways uniform designed by Roland Klein, complete with navy-blue wrist gloves.

Worst uniforms of all time: UPS pilots and the last Wardair uniform!

The Southwest hot pants, halter top, and white vinyl go-go boots were the ultimate.

Honorbale mention goes to the Trans-Texas Airways "Cowgirl" hostesses of the late 50s-early 60s.....gray gabardine skirt, leather vest, and cowboy boots and hat.

Well I have to say that my favourite is the one that I wear. SkyService / RootsAir Designed Uniforms. The cranberry coloured women's skirts / jumpers above the knee, also the the pants the women wear are very fitting shows all the curves. On the men. plain but very smart looking charcoal uniforms. Second Fav. Aeroflot. Very very professional looking. Also Asiana very militant style. Very sharp and clean looking. Air Canada's uniform when it first came out looked very nice. a little aged now needs a redesign.

Now Canada 3000. the womens uniform looks nice except the shirt. The mens Jacket looks horrible. Royals purple!?!?! What were they thinking. Canjet's uniforms was horrible Wesjet is to Blah!! and to top it all off is British Airways!1 what were the people on who designed that nasty one!!

Singapore Airlines

The elegant sarong-clad kebaya, designed by French designer Pierre Balmain. Over the years, it has been internationally recognised with the gracious Singapore Girl. In addition, the Singapore Girl with Kebaya, is on display in Madame Tussauds to symbolise the growth of international air travel.

"Singapore Airlines' legendary customer services standards are symbolised by the gracious "Singapore Girl". In her distinctive unifrom, a sarong kebaya in batik material, she personifies SIA's tradition of friendly service and Asian hospitality."

Does anyone have a picture of a Singapore Girl in full with kebaya, head and sandals? i've tried to find one in vain!

Is it just me or is anyone else sick of hearing about the "Singapore Girls." There's about ten things that I could say that are wrong with their title.

My vote goes to: British Airways and Air France

I liked the Braniff uniforms of the early 1970's. Pucci in either pink/green or blue/green with the long hostess pants and the matching umbrellas.

BTW, the Trans-Texas "Cowgirl" uniform that TxAg referred to is depicted on this page:

Lately I have spent a lot of time in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Laguardia and Boston and most airline uniforms look alike. They are all mainly dark blue with normal trimmings. But when the crews from British Airways go walking by, everyones' head turns. they look very sharp and do not blend in with everyone else. But in all history my favorites were the TWA uniforms of the 70's. To this day their pilot group wears the same one.

I wasn't around to see the uniforms of the 60's, I wish I could have.

Well, alrighty then. Here ya go!

Here's a couple of postcards showing Braniff's uniforms of the 1960's.

In the first one, the hostess on the far left is wearing the space helmet that Braniff Place referred to.

http://www.borg.com/~postcard/br74.jpg

The second postcard is an advertisement for the "Air Strip"

http://www.borg.com/~postcard/br74a.jpg

The website that hosts these postcards has about 80 different postcards of various Braniff aircraft from the 1930's through the 1970's, including some hard-to-find shots of the exterior of Amon Carter Field, later renamed Greater Southwest International Airport.

Here is the main page for the site:

I haven't seen a lot but I like Canada 3000 and JAT's. Although, what the FA looks like greatly effects what the uniform looks like.

Here is an example of JAT's

I wish all their FAs looked that good. Most of them are old women who are so big they can hardly fit between the seats. Their only young and really good looking crew I evere experinced was on a DC-10 (BEG-AMS). They were really tall, slender and attracrtive. On all my other flights they were fat grannies.

I can't speak for "all time" but I can speak for what I know and my vote goes to the current Air France uniforms. I had the fortune of doing a 4 month internship with AF in Toulouse, France and I like all their agent's uniforms, especially the female ones  Smile

If they can not move their ass comfortably in the aisle of a 737-300 they aren't fit to be a flight attendant. Also, just because they are grannies there is no need to plaster their face with unsightly make-up.

I love this old AF uniform, I dont know very much about it but it is a classic, very 1950s, a nice break from those bloody blue uniforms!
