JL has released its new uniform as part of the run up to the olympics. Inline with its conservative brand this is a more a refresh of the current design.

Great to see some equality with female employees allowed to choose pants if they wish.

Looks like a modern and fresh design to me, I like the black, and also the white jacket I assume for premium facing staff.

Staid. Late 1980’s. Boring. Missed opportunity.

The red on the lapels reminds me of NW’s uniforms.

I like the women’s blouses for Okinawa. They should be used as blouses on the mainline cabin crew in lieu of the poofy blouses.

When combined with the horrendous Zip Air Tokyo concept, this really makes me wonder who's running the show, creatively, at JL. And I say this as someone who loves their current minimalistic livery!

Equality?!? Are male employees allowed to wear skirts if they wish?

Equality is not a one-way street.

Interesting that the Japan design æsthetic is highly regarded, but JAL hews so conservatively when they make any changes.

Refresh? What refresh? Who is going to notice anything? Times change and uniforms reflect the spirit of the times. In the tradition of the « Olympic Spirit » why don’t they borrow something of the old Olympic Airlines uniforms of the early seventies and put some colour in their lives? (Speaking of Olympic colours in scarves and accessories).

Why not? It's the 21st century.

I actually think they look alright. Are they the best uniforms in the industry? No, I am quite partial to BA and Delta's uniforms. However, they are boldly inoffensive and give off a look of professionalism which is something that can be said better than the new United uniforms which are frankly disgusting.

Very nice; very professional. I do prefer the dark jackets rather than the light coloured ones.

There's nothing bad about them. They are neat and tidy. But there's definitely nothing at all exciting about them. Nothing brave. Nothing new.

It's hard to tell based on just one photo, but the fit of them doesn't look great either. The female trousers look a bad shape. And the male blazer doesn't look to be a slick shape.

Don't threaten me with a good time.
