New Uniforms = Happy United Airlines Flight Attendants

ImageHere’s a shout out to a group of happy United Airlines flight attendants  that I bumped into a few weeks ago in the Houston Intercontinental Airport. They were a happy bunch of gals rocking the new looks and embracing change in a big way. How refreshing! It made me want to switch our flight to be with this enthusiastic crew.

From left to right: Colleen Cox who opted for the two piece black skirt and short sleeve jacket look, Lisa Romano who paired the bright blue shift dress with black off-center stripes with black sheer hose and black pumps, Janie Pond who chose a more casual and comfortable pair of black trousers with a matching black shirt topped off with the signature blue cardigan with black stripe details down the front and on the sleeves.

Thanks ladies! May all your flights be smooth and all your passengers low maintenance…

    Hey there!!!!
    I too will be on United Sunday, LOL, I am not quite sure where I will be working to and from, have not really looked at the trip. Anyhow, thank you for flying with us. I have a friend who has been working the Paris flights out of Newark, (altho she lives and commutes from CA) her name is Ann and she is a hoot, just love her, maybe you will see her on one of your trips. Hope your holidays were wonderful and the year ahead brings many wonderful happenings to you and yours. Cheers back at you. Janie

      I am going through Chicago this next leg. Do you know any FA’s doing that route?

        No that is probably Sub United FA’s, remember the merger is still not complete and we only fly our metal and the international bases are still EWR, IAH ALTHO, staring in Feb, we will have LAX and IAD for international as well, Maybe ORD too, I am such a domestic baby, I really have no desire to do international flying for work, maybe pleasure tho. Have a great trip, look forward to your blogs.

      Dear Janet,

      You are right! This group of FA’s were so positive, fun and yet professional I thoroughly enjoyed meeting them. And, now they are converts – I know at least one subscribes to my blog so I was happy to gain some new Paris fans as well.

    I just flew on United roundtrip to and from Europe. Both times we had wonderful crew and service. They all looked very nice and professional.

      Hi Carol,

      Thanks for the comment. I just got back from Europe as well and thought the flight attendants looked very sharp and were so sweet! The domestic routes are usually where I run into overworked and underpaid grumpy FA’s. I hate that for them and for me and for us all!

      I am glad you had a great experience and I look forward to sharing more about future trips. How was your trip overall? Any tips you want to share with us?

    Great photo – I would think comfort would be the key factor with all the stretching and bending they do.

      Hi Kim!
      Well, my guess would be some feel most comfortable looking their best so they chose what they feel they look good in for their own body type. Some may prefer to just be comfy no matter what (that is what I would do). Some may also be single and ready to mingle so looking professional, yet feminine might motivate the style they chose.
      The guy uniforms have changed as well, but I didn’t run into any who were as excited as these gals so I didn’t report on them. Maybe next week!
