UK airline 'easyJet' is updating its flight attendant uniforms by adding built-in microphones and luminous emergency lighting. Although airlines have undergone a number of major changes over the years, the clothing worn by the cabin crew has largely remained the same. Now easyJet is updating its uniforms in order to help its crew carry out tasks more efficiently.

In order to update its flight attendant uniforms, easyJet teamed up with the fashion tech company 'CuteCircuit.' CuteCircuit closely monitored the easyJet cabin crew and its engineers in order to design uniforms that would meet their needs. The new uniforms are equipped with LEDs that display important information about current flights. These fixtures can also provide additional lighting in the event of an on-board emergency. In addition to the LEDs, the uniforms also contain built-in microphones that improve communication between the cabin crew and those on the ground.

Overall, the new uniforms are designed to help the cabin crew perform tasks more efficiently, while improving passenger safety at the same time.
