China Airlines unveils new cabin crew uniforms in pop video

By Chris Chamberlin, June 15 2015

China Airlines’ ground staff and cabin crew will sport a new uniform as the SkyTeam alliance airline seeks to spruce up its image across the globe.

Revealed in a pop video by Taiwanese band Men Envy Children and taking to the skies from August, frequent travellers will notice a difference from the airline’s traditional purple theme – instead designed by William Cheung to feature red, blue, black and grey.

Female crew members don a 1950s-style cheongsam with a matching jacket, while the gents scrub up in a three-piece suit featuring a sapphire blue band on the vest and blazer:

Higher in the ranks, you’ll spot the Cabin Manager in white and blue-grey, and the Chief Purser in a smart-looking blue and gold:

During the colder months the crew also have a matching winter coat with coloured rims on the front pockets…

…. but whatever the season, uniformed staff also have matching shoes with hints of blue to distinguish against the traditional plain black:

Watch the following four-minute video and keep your eyes peeled for China Airlines staff performing the ‘cabin crew dance’:

China Airlines flies to Sydney and Brisbane from Taipei, across the Tasman to Auckland from both cities and will also resume its seasonal Sydney-Christchurch flights across the Australian summer.

There was something lost in translation. The actual word for word translation would be "Little Boy Band", which probably sounded a bit lame...

I'm surprised they used the old 747 recliner business class as stage. Normally airlines would use their most premium product, and China airlines has recently introduced the new reverse herringbone business class on their 77W. Don't know why they still use the recliners for promotional material.

ONCE AGAIN WILLIAM CHEUNG proves to be a case of the Emperor has no clothes.  He pulls the wool over the eyes once again with this no talent, idiotic and condescending design. The airlines deserve what they got for believing the hype. Get ready for his idiotic designs in the upcoming film League of the Gods.
