Delta Says 'No Fat Chicks' For Its Signature Red Dress
Besides the whole Coke or Pepsi controversy, the merger between Delta and Northwest has gone pretty smoothly. Sure, employees and representatives on both sides had their issues, but for the most part they've quickly become one big happy, blended family. However, now that things are almost done, the Northwest flight attendant union is speaking out against Delta's fashion.
The union is upset because Delta’s signature red dress for its female flight attendants is only available up to size 18. Red definitely is noticeable, and the Northwest union feels that Delta doesn’t want to draw attention to its larger employees. These Richard Tyler-designed dresses aren’t the only options for in-flight fashion, as there are plenty of blue pantsuits available in larger sizes, but then you'd be without the chicness of a red wrapdress.
We say that the union has a legitimate complaint. If you’re going to offer a snazzy red dress, then you should offer it to everyone. Certain flight attendants may look better and more professional in a more traditional uniform, and some may look great in that red dress. Let the flight attendants decide what looks best for them, and we’ll trust that they make the right choice.
