(BusinessWeek)   Air Canada unveils new flight attendant uniforms heavily influenced by hipster fashion. Any true hipster would go back to trashy miniskirt retro-70s look, but this just shows Canadians are so hip, they don't aimlessly follow hipster trends   (businessweek.com) divider line 54

And here is the company's one south Asian flight crew!

Fark.  As if flying Air Canada wasn't annoying enough.

That outfit is going to look great on old ladies.

Sources say legal blindness cases are sure to rise as once again optometrists consider lenseless glasses to be an ineffective sight aid.

wow, those hats are just farking terrible.

It's a bunch of extras from the Glee set.

Jets are too mainstream for me anyway. It's auto-gyros all the way.

That's where the main cast will be working when Glee is over. If there is a god.

Those fixed gear planes are probably a biatch to fly
 
2013-06-01 08:42:18 PM  
So.... the hats are a little goofy, but other than that, what makes these uniforms "hipster?" Is it just because you don't like them?
 
2013-06-01 08:57:02 PM  
Some FAs will remember wearing these earlier in their careers, say, around 1982 when they were at United.

I'm a citizen of Canada.  It's really obscure, you've probably never heard of it.
 
2013-06-01 09:20:17 PM  
Yes, this is horrible, this idea.

Hey, if it keeps them as happy as they look in the photo, I'm all for it, although it will likely result in a new
"experience update" fee to cover to costs. But I'm more interested in this headline from the sidebar on that page: "Why Can't McDonald's Offer Egg McMuffins All Day?"

It isn't for regular AC. They are starting up a low cost airline to compete with low cost and regional airlines.

Don't worry, they too will tell us that smoking is not allowed. But in a totally ironic way.

Nobody needs to go back to those fashions.

I'm strangely impressed that they were able to find pants that are equally unflattering on all their models.

Air Canada Rouge.   A single point of failure.

Di Atribe: So.... the hats are a little goofy, but other than that, what makes these uniforms "hipster?" Is it just because you don't like them?


I think it's because the net effect is that they look like they should be hanging out at a bar instead of working a service job.

But the rolled sleeves, sweater vests, lenless glasses, hats, and garish ties and scarves are all classic hipster fashion. So classic, in fact, that real hipsters wouldn't be caught dead in them.

I've got nothing against hipsters, I've not nothing against "hipster fashion". What does annoy me is people that confuse "hipster" with "yuppie".

Compared to US based airlines, Air Canada is heaven.

Crap wages, the employees will be paying for their own training ($50/mo for 3 years even if they leave the job), and those uniforms are fugly. Except for the Fluevog shoes. I want all the Fluevogs.

At first glance I thought the lady on the right was wearing earmuffs.
 
2013-06-02 07:50:56 AM  
Guys pants are way too baggy with no taper in the calves.  The ties are all too wide. The first button on their cardigan is way too low and none of them can tie a decent tie knot.

In short no hipster would wear anything they have on. The glasses look like something hipsters might have worn 3-5 years ago but they've mostly moved to thinner frames by now.

Alaska Airlines gives you free alcohol in coach.  And if they have 1st class seats at boarding time, they put out a call to upgrade for $50.  I freakin' LOVE Alaska Air.

Every time I've ever flown Alaska out of Seattle in the last 6 months, regarding the beer/wine.  I've upgraded for $50 twice - once about a year ago, Atlanta to Seattle and once about 18 months ago, Seattle to Chicago.

Someone should say something. I will. That's not how hipsters dress. That's how hollywood metrosexuals dress.
