    Even as United Airlines flight attendants wait for new uniforms following the 2011 merger with Continental, the airline has given samples of older uniforms to the museum at San Francisco International Airport for a display.

    United's gift includes all the major uniform styles worn by its flight attendants all the way back to the early days of commercial aviation in the 1930s.

    Both male and female uniforms are included, and will be shown in an exhibit at the Louis A. Turpen Aviation Museum at SFO.

    In the airline's early days as Boeing Air Transport back in 1930, stewardesses wore a forest green uniform complete with a cape. By the late 1950s, attire had changed to a navy blue wool suit with a skirt.
