Anyone who has flown in an aircraft knows the typical uniform of a flight attendant. They usually wear tight skirts with heels. It is quite a customary dress that is being used in the air transport industry. Even though this looks very attractive when they wear it, it is extremely uncomfortable and impractical with their job title.
But it has been the way how the industry operates almost everywhere in the world. But this is a story about an airline, who threw away the norms to create a comfortable uniform for their flight attendants. This is SkyUp, a Ukrainian budget airplane service that thought that their attendants would be more comfortable, practical, and more amicable to present a better service. They replaced this common uniform with a pair of pants & sneakers and they look good on their attendants! Scroll down to take a look at this new swap of uniforms.

Flight attendants and their jobs are not very easy. They have to serve, attend to the passengers’ needs, check the needed information, guide the passengers through various situations including, boarding and emergencies. With all these things, they will have to move and be on their feet for a long period of time. So heels and the common uniforms do not assist them to do an effective task. However, the new uniform the SkyUp airlines introduced is appreciated by the management and the attendants.
This airline is a young company and it is one of the main reasons that it took initiatives to break through the norms of its industry. It is true that some companies or most of them have an added advantage by having their attendants in tight skirts and in a very attractive manner. But this Ukrainian company believes that doing their service is much important than being pleasing to the eye. Their pants are high-waisted and have a loose fit while the sneakers are Air Max 720 by Nike.
This gives an example of how a good airline service becomes confident of their service rather than making their attendant wear uncomfortable attire. Below are comments some people left online. You can share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!
