GLOBAL TRAVELER AWARDS ETIHAD AIRWAYS “BEST FLIGHT ATTENDANT UNIFORMS”
Etihad Airways has been recognized for having the Best Airline Flight Attendant Uniforms by Global Traveler magazine in the USA.
The award will be presented at the Global Traveler awards ceremony on December 12 at the Peninsula Hotel in Los Angeles. Award winners were determined by a survey of frequent business and luxury travellers, with more than 36,000 respondents.
Aubrey Tiedt, Etihad Airways Vice President Guest Services, said: “Our cabin crew are, in very many ways, brand ambassadors. They bring the Etihad Airways brand to destinations across the globe, delivering the warm and attentive service for which we are known.
“Fittingly, our uniform, conceptualised by Italian couture designer Ettore Bilotta, is a classically elegant ensemble. The simple design is universally appealing, with a touch of our Arabian heritage in the form of the stylish light veil worn with the ladies’ uniform.
“With only one chance to make a first impression, we are pleased to present our cabin crew as professional and modern. We overlook no details in our service, nor our presentation.”
Etihad Airways has recently made updates to enhance the look of the uniforms. For example, female Cabin Managers, who wear a clean grey suit, now accent the look with red shoes to complement red gloves. All male cabin crew now wear the same look, a modern three-piece suit and tie, with different colours to signify different roles.
