Federal Regulations For F/As And Neckware?

Fri Nov 30, 2007 8:19 pm

Just curious, are US companies required by any laws to offer their Flight Attendants clip-on ties? Seems to me that a regular tie could become obstructive in an assault or evacuation.

None to speak of. Would prefer a clip-on. Safer should someone try to grab you with it. I have a QF tie (from a few years back) that is actually velcroed for that reason. Easy break away should that happen.

On that note, anyone here know where to make a tie, clip-on?

As far as I know, no they are not. I can tell you though, that in terms of the safety issues pertaining to an evacuation, many airlines have their male flight attendants remove their neckties after preparing their cabin and before taking their seats.

Please direct your attention to the flight attendants in the cabin...

I was thinking a situation more along the lines of limited cabin preperation.

Then it is just taken off. Clip-on, regular or otherwise.

Nor have I. SafetyDemo, do you mean for regular takeoff and landing or for an emergency. At CO, it is only really warranted for an emergency. If you took your tie off for takeoff and landings, based on that logic, females should remove their hose, necklaces, etc..

But as for federal regulations, there aren't any. That has been passed down to the airlines and incorporated in their inflight policies.

That's true, QF ties are velcroed, so do come off if you pull on them; but they still need to be tied like a regular tie. Same as police force ties
