Recognizing 60 years of aviation industry leadership and innovation, China Eastern Airlines is in Shanghai to commemorate the company's inaugural flight. What began as a short flight from Shanghai, has evolved into one of the world's largest airline.
Today, nearly 90,000 dedicated employees of China Eastern and Shanghai Airlines maintain a combined fleet of 610 aircraft and operate more than 2,200 flights per day to nearly 1,062 cities in 177 countries around the world, via SkyTeam alliance network.
As its fleet and network expands, the carrier's costumery has had a long and colorful history, with an emphasis on "standing out".
From its 60s Chinese patterns and 70s-era psychedelic blouses to its eyebrow-raising modern incarnation, the airline staff shows passengers their uniforms on flight MU5105 from Shanghai to Beijing, presenting the evolution of stewardess style.
