A Sartorial Solution?

MSNBC reports today that Delta--purportedly penurious, if bankrupty reports mean anything--has enlisted Australian fashionista Richard Tyler to design new uniforms for its flight attendants. The color? Bright red. I, for one, can think of better uses for that money, but at the same time, I'm completely in favor of an aesthetic upgrade. One wonders, though, if the flight attendants might have preferred a slight raise or fewer hours. They might be overworked and underpaid, but hey, at least they LOOK fabulous, right? Well, I'm not so sure. The uniforms look a bit like raincoats, and the matching hats (I swear!) make the women look like old biddies heading off to a garden party. Jessica Tandy died years ago, but apparently Miss Daisy lives on aboard Delta Airlines--and who better to guide us to safety after a crash?

Bright red, hmmmm? Could they have picked a worse color? This reminds me of the flight attendant uniforms for the British budget carrier Easyjet.
