    Here's a look at them:

    Assuming for the sake of discussion that the final uniforms look like these, I am especially glad that there will be a purdy blue dress among the options -- it's nice that the FAs will have a classy, elegant dress (not at all like the red hooker dress of WOS flight attendants).

    Needless to say, the dear respected Supreme Leader Jeff Smisek is to be praised for this wonderful display of his sartorial wisdom.

    The other designs were much better, this one reeked of US Airways too much to be honest.

    The other ones I've seen were by the designer they decided not to use.

    The only thing I'm not crazy about is the woman's apron. Looks too depression-era middle America to me.

    I thought that US uniforms are just pants and a blue fleece pullover, because that's all I've seen on such TATL flights to BRU and MAD

    I was thinking it looked like rural Southeast Texas, but, yeah, same thing.

    That's all I've seen on any US flight in the past few years.

    I wish they would bring back special uniforms for their Hawaii service.

    Although, I have seen some US FAs in some sort of uniform--granted I was on a E70 operated by Republic...

    That would be the Republic Airways uniforms not the US Airways uniforms, only Piedmont/PSA wears the US uniform since they are company owned.

    My bad, but that does mean that in a few weeks, I'll be able to finally see a US uniform as one of my segments is operated by PSA.

    They had it in April! :eek: The form was even had the new UA logo on it, so it wasn't old leftover stock.

    I'm jealous! We were even on the new-ish IAD-HNL flight which, I would've thought they'd at least try to jazz it up a bit.

    I'm probably going to try HA or AS next year.
