ANA unveils new uniform. Elegant and chic, but no mini-skirt

One of the major Japanese airlines, ANA, is going to change their uniform for the first time in 10 years. Yesterday, they finally made a grand introduction of the new design.

ANA welcomed Prabal Gurung, who has experience designing for many notable public figures such as Michelle Obama and Princess Kate, and is the first foreign designer in ANA's history. He made their 10th uniform elegant, feminine, chic, and in a modern style to express ANA's 5-star high quality service.

So sorry gentlemen, ANA didn't follow the lead set by Skymark Airlines, with its super-mini skirt uniform.

Skymark Airlines, pioneer Japanese LCC/ Low Cost Carrier, has had a lot of buzz on social media and with Japanese airlines related authorities and groups since unveiling their new loved or hated super-mini skirt uniform.

ANA staff will start wearing the new uniform this coming winter.

Japan Airlines is going to start offering a special in-flight meal jointly developed with Kumamoto prefecture which is located in the southern island of Kyushu. The name of the in-flight meal is (of course) named after THAT famous bear character mascot, "Air Kumamon".

Several months ago, Skymark Airlines went one step beyond other airlines with their miniskirted flight attendants. And now, it seems like they are going to do one better than Japanese major airlines such as ANA and JAL regarding in-flight Wi-Fi.
