    World's smartest: Air France ... World's worst: Emirates. I have to disagree with Laurie. The latest Qantas aboriginal uniform (which I believe is about to change) is contemporary and smart.

    Any which look like an actual 'uniform' get my vote. Well done Virgin for returning to smartness. I have flown Qantas many times and when they changed to the polyester print dresses in the 70s their class went out the window. The dresses are unflattering and dowdy especially if the hosties do not have a pencil thin figure. Congratulations to those airlines who recognise style and smartness wins the day.

    Hmmm, the winner outfit looks too stock-standard. Virgin's is nicer - even Qantas is nicer. Agree with the rest, Jetstar is nasty - both the polyester uniforms and the airline

    I totally agree Chris, Jetstar uniforms do nto even rate a quarter point! They are ugly.

    "Stylish" is a trite word which means whatever you want it to mean.
