The trademark red uniforms for flight attendants have been given a contemporary twist and there's a new look for pilots and ground crew too. The uniforms use nanotechnology to repel stains and keep their shape and colour longer.

Passengers on flights from Gatwick and Heathrow will see the new uniforms over the next few months on selected routes as they are assessed and rated by crew. They will then be introduced next year.
