Sharp new employee uniforms
In May 1953, a standard new blue uniform for all groups in the company makes a system-wide appearance. For flight operations, this is the first major uniform change since 1937. The basic uniform is an off-blue shade; in summer, flight attendants switch to a sky-blue shade. Shirts, blouses, hats and ties and company insignia have been altered or redesigned, and both flight and ground personnel wear ID brevets.
