KLM personnel to go nameless in style



To protect the privacy of stewardesses (and stewards, I imagine), pilots and ground personnel, KLM has decided that they won’t be wearing any nametags anymore as of April 2010. Apparently, there’s no rush to protect them — odd. Their ‘title’ will still be displayed on a pin they’ll have to wear.

KLM personnel will also be getting new uniforms, as the ones stewardesses (and again stewards, I imagine) now wear date from 1990.

Yes, this is a silly picture of two co-pilots in an old DC-9 cockpit.

  1. Would putting their first name and not their last name on their name tag create a great security risk? It would allow people to call them by their names without having to ask for it.

  2. They are named flight attendants to include both sexes.

  3. I know that, but the Dutch use the word ‘stewardess’ which does not include both. m/v? :)
