I thought the new Delta Airlines uniforms were bad, but the new American Airlines uniforms are simply appalling!

American Airlines only recently released new uniforms (in late 2016) but as a result of flight attendant complaints which included difficulty in breathing and skin reactions (some reactions were from crew members who were simply standing near others who were wearing the uniform), American Airlines has come out with an alternative new uniform.

These new uniforms, which will be rolled out in 2020, are designed in Parisian Blue and are awful. They look like cheap office suits with a horrible colour scheme, distracting patterns and boring cut. Take a look at the picture above and then weep.

American Airlines is otherwise a fairly decent legacy airline. We like their American Airlines Business Class and their overall long-haul offering is decent in all classes, so why such a dull uniform choice for such an iconic carrier? The mind boggles!

Now cleanse your mind with this video, that I have highlighted on a number of occasions but sadly no airline decision maker has taken notice. It showcases the wonderful and inspiring Hainan uniforms. Talk about a contrast!

In the UK, American Express Rewards convert directly to airline miles. The FREE Amex Gold Card is an incredible deal with a huge free bonus of Membership Rewards. For the UK card, you will need to drop me an email for a link to get extra 2,000 referral bonus points.

Other UK cards worth considering include the BA Premium Plus American Express Card, which has a bonus of 26,000 Avios (drop me an email for a referral to get 1,000 bonus points) when you spend 3,000 GBP in your first three months of card membership. The cost is 195 GBP per anum but if you take advantage of the signup bonus and the 2-for-1 certificate you more than cover the cost of the card. I spend exactly 10k GBP on this card to spark a 2-4-1 voucher plus I get 1.5 Avios per 1 GBP spent.
