New BA UniformsBack to Forum
I was chatting to some of the crew on the way back to Accra yesterday. They said that the new uniforms will be coming in before the end of September. All the female crew were complaining about the cut of the garments. They also said that many of the items already delivered bore little relationship to the stated sizes and/or with badly cut shoulders/sleeves. The men I spoke to were not so concerned on those issues, but they all pointed out that, so far, no guidance has been issued on styles and combinations in terms of what is mandatory/optional/banned.
So there could be a few disgruntled air crew on board in a week or so.19 Sep 2023
“Were the cabin crew consulted as part of the design stage which would seem an obvious thing to do?”
Yes, they definitely were. I think they are happy with the range of uniform elements etc (although they pointed out that the new jumpsuits may not be very practical). The problem, they say, is that the designer is more well-known for male rather than female garments so the final product is lacking for the female crew. And then the production is also lacking in terms of quality (e.g. cardigans with sleeves which are 6 inches too long etc.).20 Sep 2023
