Top 10: Airlines with the best cabin crew uniform in 2013 (Europe and Asia-Pacific)

Aeroflot Cabin Crew Uniform
Aeroflot - Europe's best air hostess uniform?
Mirror mirror on the wall, which cabin crew uniform is the most stylish of them all?

Although fashion is not something I would normally cover on this blog, I thought the results of Skyscanner’s latest user survey were worth sharing!

The popular website, which allows users to browse for flights via price and location, asked more than 1,200 air travellers to rate the cabin crew uniforms of European airlines on a scale of one to five.

The air hostess survey for 2013 included all of Europe’s main players, from national carriers such as British Airways, Air France, Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines to low-cost carriers Ryanair, easyJet and Flybe.

However, with a certain element of surprise, none of the above actually managed to top the list! The winner was Russia’s national carrier Aeroflot, whose cabin crew wear a distinctive red uniform.

Perhaps less surprising was the fact that Skyscanner’s Russia Manager Tatiana Danilova was thrilled with the results. “Russian cabin crew are well-known for being very glamorous, and it is a well-respected and much sought after profession,” commented Danilova. “It’s reassuring our Russian cabin crew are flying the flag and showing that Russians are extremely style savvy!”

Here is the complete top 10:

  1. Aeroflot
  2. British Airways
  3. Lufthansa
  4. Air France
  5. Finnair
  6. Flybe
  7. Turkish Airlines
  8. Alitalia
  9. easyJet
  10. Ryanair

Top 10: Asia-Pacific airlines with the best cabin crew uniform

China Eastern Airlines Cabin Crew Uniform
China Eastern Airlines - winner in the Asia-Pacific region
And why limit this to Europe? +Skyscanner  completed a similar survey for Asia Pacific airlines, again with 1,200 jet-setters asked to vote, from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Korea and Singapore.

This time around, it was Shanghai-based China Eastern who topped the list, all thanks to its smart navy blue uniforms, which are teamed with white shirts and red scarves.

Here are the full results:

  1. China Eastern Airlines
  2. Asiana Airlines
  3. Virgin Australia 
  4. Air China
  5. China Southern Airlines
  6. Air Asia
  7. Singapore Airlines 
  8. Korean Air
  9. Philippine Airlines
  10. Jeju Air

  1. I would say Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines in the south east Asia along with Cathy Pacific. Air Asia have great Cabin Airhostess uniform. Emirates and Ittihad Airlines have a classy stylish uniform as well..

    Thank you for sharing! An interesting article, although I feel I would agree more with the comments rather than the official Skyscanner ratings. It is indeed a wonder why Singapore Airlines have been put on 7th place.. Their uniforms are the only ones which have ever made a strong impression on me. I like the uniforms of Virgin Atlantic, Emirates and Qatar Airways as well, but there is a lot of marketing involved with them - I cannot say which has influenced me most, unform design or ads.

  4. I would say Emirates uniform is outstanding, elegant and classy.

  5. I am really surprised by this list! I would be interested in seeing the top 10 worst Cabin Crew Uniforms. Did they make a list like this?

  6. China Eastern Air??? oh.. please.... it's a copy of Korean Air's uniform about 20 years ago.. haha

    1. I absolutely agree, plus their mediocre service each I flew with them.

  7. Now that would be an interesting list, Eleni! I don't think they made it though...

  8. Too bad! I may consider creating one of my own. Austrian Air will definitely make my top 10...

  9. Ryanair??.. this is a joke!

  10. how come singapore airlines is placed at no.7? they should be no.1 !

    1. Agree with u... should be singapore and malaysia airlines no.1

  11. Surprise to see no Indian in the list, I like King Fisher

  12. Did someone see SATA's new uniform?

  13. Singapore and Malaysian are at the top of my list...

  14. My number one and has been for several years has got to be Singapore Airlines, closely followed by Cathay Pacific. My wife and I were sat at Schipol last week with nearly an hour to kill, and were watching the crews go out to the gates. We were commenting on how smart some looked and how dated others were. Those that had matching flight bags/stewardess's trolleys, really stood out.

    Malaysia will come close to the very top, including turkish airlines, singapore and emirates.

  16. Check it Garuda Indonesia...........the fastest growth in Asia now.

  17. If you want more correct opinions you should show photos of the uniforms of all airlines here (and name them, of course). It is IMPOSSIBLE for more than a lucky very few people to ever travel on and see all the airlines' uniforms, so what you will get here is people voting for their own airlines and not any of the others - very skewed opinions, and far from reality.

  18. I like Air India,they represents their national culture by wearing sari as uniforms for the hostesses...besides sari looks sooo glamorous...skirts and shirts look more formal-ish..

  19. I think korean air and SQ have the best one for Asia

  20. I love Asiana Airlines, with their service, their flight attendants and of course the cabin crew's uniform. It shows the beauty of the flight attendants naturally, attractively and hard to resist!

  21. SriLankan airlines is pretty savvy too with the colourful peacock saree. It's striking, yet retain the unique cultural aspect.
