Flight attendants wear comfortable clothes – level 3

19-10-2021 07:00

Ukrainian SkyUp Airlines decided to put an end to heels, tight skirts, and tight shirts after collecting feedback from flight attendants about their uniforms.

The airlines‘ new look includes loose pants and sneakers. According to one of the attendants, the job is physically demanding, and the crew sometimes has no extra moments to sit down.

The high heels look beautiful; however, their feet suffer and swell by the end of a flight. Sneakers are cool and comfortable because the feet are on the floor, and even if the feet swell during the flight, there is less discomfort.

SkyUp also decided to ditch what they called conservative, including a tight bun or ponytail, which will be replaced by braids. According to the SkyUp marketing department, the cabin crew is responsible for safety, and that is why their uniform must be comfortable as they move around.

Difficult words: ditch (to get rid of), conservative (traditional and with few changes), braid (a length of hair that’s divided into three parts that are then tied in large parts).
