Flights: Flight attendants are banned from wearing a certain item during Christmas

Flight attendants working with United Airlines have been warned against certain festive items when it comes to their uniform. A leaked memo has advised cabin crew members about what is and is not allowed to be worn. The memo advised that “accessories must be in good taste”. contacted United Airlines for comment regarding the memo.

The memo explained how the items which are allowed are “adornments” such as a “conservative holiday scarf,” “conservative earrings,” or “one holiday pin”.

However, many items were also listed as banned for all members of the flight crew.

This included “head adornments” which included antlers, hates, haloes and deely bobbers. It also included “holiday jumpers,” and “holiday hosiery“ on the list of items not allowed.

This means crew must not wear ugly jumpers, tights or headgear as part of their Christmas uniform.

A spokesperson told “We have some of the most professional flight attendants in the industry.

“Every year as part of our regular communications to flight attendants we send a reminder about uniform standards.”

A United spokeswoman told a memo is issued every year but it is unclear if the memo is current or what caused the memo to be sent out.

Other airlines are much happier to get int the festive spirit this Christmas.

A Jet2 flight from Leeds Bradford Airport saw cabin crew dress up as elves and reindeers to give children Christmas goody bags before they could meet Father Christmas.

Virgin Atlantic are also in the Christmas spirit by swapping their Vivienne Westwood designed uniforms for ugly Christmas jumpers.

The airline allowed the outfit change in support of Christmas Jumper Day last week which encourages a £2 donation for Save the Children.

Staff will wear the specially designed Virgin Atlantic Christmas jumper on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Alaska Airlines will also give something back to passengers wearing an ugly holiday jumper – they will be allowed to board early.

The airline allows the rare practice every year during Christmas.
