Northwest flight attendants to wear Delta uniforms

Delta Airlines has sent a memo to flight attendants at Northwest Airlines, which it is seeking to buy through a stock swap, notifying them of upcoming “style clinics” where new Delta uniforms are to be unveiled.

Delta wants NW’s flight attendants to begin wearing Delta uniforms on routes early next year.

While this may not be a significant story, it does give a clue as to how the merger between the two airlines could go in terms of branding — whether the Northwest brand will survive or be swallowed up by Delta’s.

The merger, announced this spring, is expected to close by year’s end and will form the world’s largest airline carrier.
