Staff have reportedly complained that the uniforms are uncomfortable and unflattering on anyone who doesn’t happen to resemble the Australian beauty.

One stewardess commented: 'the uniforms are really tight and they are simply not practical for the very physical job we have to do… The uniform looks fantastic on Miranda Kerr but unfortunately we don't all look like her.’

Another flight attendant said 'hosts range in age from their 20s to their 60s and a lot of the older ones don't want to wear tight-fitting uniforms.’

Miranda modelled the new uniforms when they were launched but in reality staff have found them less flattering.

The women working on Quantas flights fear that not only will the uniforms be unflattering but that they'll also be impractical. Many are worried that regular women will feel uncomfortable wearing the sexy new uniforms.

Miranda modelled the uniforms when they were recently launched. Quantas used a video of the model, featuring her trying to change into the exclusive Quantas uniform dress only for it to be taken away from her and met with a sign saying ‘staff only.’


Many of the Quantas staff are reluctant to switch from the older, more comfortable uniforms to the sexier new attire.

Members of the Flight Attendants Association of Australia National Division have been in touch with Quantas requesting that some changes are made to the new uniforms.

A spokeswoman said: ‘we have asked the airline to tweak the uniform a little to accommodate some concerns.’

They continued: 'Once it comes in and the crew are wearing it we will be having more discussions. If there are more issues, obviously we would expect the company to iron them out.'

Quantas responded to the complaints, saying: ‘the feedback we've had from staff on the new uniform has been overwhelmingly positive… There are bound to be some adjustments needed as we roll out multiple pieces to 12,000 people, but it's been going very smoothly and there's a lot of excitement.'
