Surely these are gender opposite, not ‘neutral’?

Shame. I always enjoyed flying Virgin. No more of that nonsense for me.

A certain pop song from the 60's sung by someone calling himself Napoleon XIV springs to mind...

A step too far. Probably should have asked their punters via a survey.

Flight crew "female" uniform never had heels so wouldn't be an issue.

I'd be happy to swap a tie for a scarf.

That's a rather restricted demographic. Good luck!

Actually I think the average passenger wouldn't know what an "SJW" is because they have better things to do with their time than spend all day whinging on the Internet.

Btw this is Virgin Atlantic, a completely different company to Virgin Australia, which is not subject to this new policy therefore why is this being talked about on this forum?

Publicity stunt, no more, no less. Highly unlikely you'll meet anyone actually dressed like that in the cabin.

As a longtime virgin passenger, I have been disappointed with their steady decline.
Recently they have been in woke overdrive, I reckon half the reason they are understaffed on flights is because they are all off on parades and rallies.
It is great that they want to look after their people, but they have forgotten about their paying customers and are more interested in their staff's happiness than their client's.
No one is going to part with their cash for a ticket on a mediocre airline because of uniform codes.
So Virgin, catch a wake-up and remember you are in the airline business.

Ah right, and what is the reason that all other airlines have the same problems?

The real problem is that this forum became a forum of old men not understanding that they are on the way out and that the world will turn without them and their opinions quite happily.
