Aeroflot to replace "repulsive" uniforms

31 Jul 2009 by Mark Caswell

The Moscow Times has revealed that Aeroflot is to employ “eye-catching” attendants and replace its current uniforms, following a report by a sociologist which described the colour of the current attire as “repulsive”.

According to the Russian newspaper Aeroflot’s new CEO Vitaly Savelyev told reporters at a news conference that the airline would be employing “eye-catching girls” that do not exceed a size 48 (roughly equivalent to the UK size 12).

The report also states that Aeroflot has taken advice from a London sociologist, which has advised the carrier that the colour of its current uniforms (blue and orange) is “repulsive”, and “made passengers nervous”. The new uniforms will be scarlet, beige and navy blue.

According to the Moscow Times, Savelyev also commented on the new food menu being introduced on Aeroflot flights, saying that “women and children went wild for the ice cream with peanuts”.
