Cultural ethnicity feels pleasant

Reader comment on item: Fashion at Turkish Airlines

Submitted by Jerome Krasnow (United States), Feb 12, 2013 at 10:22

When visiting EPCOT, most nations had their guides dress in native costumes. Such costumes reflect their cultural heritage. I find Turkish Airlines change of flight attendant dress to be similar and pleasant to view. When traveling to Turkey on a vacation being greeted by these attendants would build anticipation for the visit. Is anyone questioning the national element of the Oriental flare of uniforms that flight attendants wear on Oriental based airlines? Airlines are in the business to make money, of which, offending to the fewest number of travelers is a big part. The change in uniform of Turkish Airlines address to a change in ridership reasonable. Not only do I not find is offensive, but given how cold some flights can become, being fully covered makes sense to me.
