The ‘worn’ and mostly unwashed uniforms are frequently filed as ‘very worn and fragrant of my natural perfumes’. Further appear to be filed for obsession.
However, a Norwegian Airlines Air steward has now come forward to confess everything. It is the ‘appallingly low’ salaries that have led to crew members on ‘every flight’ selling their uniforms to people on eBay.
The Air steward prefers to be anonymous. Further, insists that several of his colleagues have been offered up to £500 ($650) for a couple of worn uniforms. Moreover, they are accepting it.
The man, who has been working for Norwegian Airlines since 2015, said: “You do think, ‘oh goodness £500, it’s a lot’. People think we have a glamorous life going around the world. I don’t think people realise we are reduced to selling our used crew shoes to make ends meet.”
One listing for a pair of used flight attendant tights says: “Worn on many long distance journeys on very long hot shifts. Very worn worn and fragrant of my natural perfume as often worn minus underwear”.
