ANA Reveals New Uniforms!

Mon Apr 28, 2014 3:51 am

I would appreciate someone providing a link, as I can't link from my phone.

Simply googling ANA new uniforms will be enough

http://youtu.be/VYUk9FcQz9k

They're more of a plainer look but they seem very professional to me.

What you think?

I don't really get the bows and the different coloured shirts. Very plain if you ask me.

Looks pretty boring if you ask me

It seems to rank the FA's with those in pink/lavender are pursers or lead FAs. What I don't like is that racing stripe. Also, they now have male FA's?

ANA's uniforms have always been pretty plain. The only real difference here from the last uniforms is that these are grey instead of blue. Meh, it doesn't really make much difference IMO.

Conservative, corporate, professional.

Splash of pastel colour = demure warmth (not brash primary colours)

Suits ANA. Well done.

I think you can buy those easily on K-Mart!
What an ugly uniform in my opinion.

I'm starting to notice the vast differences between people used to east Asia business culture and those of us who prefer flashyness, am I right?

Look, why does a uniform matter first of all? As long as he or she looks professional, who cares?

Think the Prabal Gurung designs look quite sharp. If anyone was hoping for a Viviene Westwood Virgin Atlantic type design would be bound to be sorely disappointed. I think its a nice change from their current uniform, but keeps their corporate identity alive. I quite like it, especially the women's uniform! Might say its better than JAL's new(ish) look.

I don't like it, but it's a good uniform. Proffesional, and corporate.

Looks like the old PR uniforms meet the current MU uniforms.

No short skirts like Skymark ?   

Joking aside, looks professional to me.

It does kind of look a bit more corporate / professional. I don't like it though and whilst it is nothing special IMO, it could be worse...

Don't quote me on this but apparently BC is making that miniskirt 100% optional. If the FA wants to wear it she can.



Japan needs some male flight attendants....and some female pilots lol

NH new uniform is very conservative uniform, nothing stands out.
on the other hand, skymarks are way too attractive.

I don't like them. Looks like it was designed by a novice. I especially don't get the blue, thin, vertical stripe down the back of the woamn's skirt. Too many color combinations (with the scarf, pink blouse).

Brilliant, now NH just need to change their aircraft interior wall color, just to give some contrast. Otherwise they are lost in the background. I think Qantas FA uniforms are the best, professional and attractive.

Professional.. boring. Nice, but nothing that will be remembered in ten years.

As already noted, it just doesn't stand out. That is good... and bad.

No one is going to know that its an ANA FA unlike some other uniforms that identify the airline.

Won't create the media buzz those uniforms did.

I hope so! If optional, then its a fun uniform. If forced on the ladies... sexist.

This I don't agree with. You have to look at the market. Japan is dominated by ANA and JAL. This does not look like a JAL uniform. In fact the old uniform looks more like a JAL uniform - both are navy blue. These are grey, which contrast with JAL's blue. So it will be very easy now to tell ANA and JAL crews apart.

ANA's current (old) uniform: http://www.japantoday.com/images/size/x/2013/04/anaakb.jpg

(Yes that's AKB48, but this is actually the best photo of the uniform I could find!)

JAL's new uniform: http://worldscrews.blogspot.com/2013/03/jal-new-uniform.html

ANA's new uniform: http://www.ana.co.jp/eng/aboutana/press/2014/140424.html

This is probably the main reason why they went with this design. Very easy to tell the two big competitors apart now.

But this isn't a memorable uniform. Not like SQ's, not like DL's 'red dress,' and not like some uniforms of old.

While distinct from JAL, it wouldn't stand out at LAX.
