    Is the timing right for this? Presenting the image of extremely casual, lackadaisical and on a shoestring budget, so soon after the Asiana incident? I hope the can convince potential passengers they have enough money to invest in professional quality pilot training. :roll:

    Comfortable, yes. “Jin” = “Jeans”, makes sense.

    I always find it amusing, however, when an organization has eight (8) different “UNIFORM” combinations. Functional differences I understand, but aesthetic differences kind of go against the meaning of “Uniform”, don’t they? Certain military organizations we all know have this same dynamic, which ends up costing everyone more money for questionable benefits.

    How will I be able to distinguish crew from passenger now?

    I flew Jin Air to Cheju Island last year. I think to a certain degree, they model themselves after Southeast Airlines, i.e., very casual and friendly atmosphere and they seem to want to do things differently than the competition.

    I’ve flown Jin air numerous time. Great, no frills, inexpensive for short trips. As far as I can tell, I see nothing new with the uniforms. They were just like this over two years ago. There was no issue with identifying who was a crew member as most individuals on the flight did not have learning disabilities. :razz:

    Comfortable? I think not, those ain’t baggy jeans they’re wearing and if you watched those women get into them you’d agree. Don’t tell me they’re wearing tacky heels with those jeans?

    I flew Jeju Air recently and saved a lot of money over Korean or Asiana (even if I’d gone and spent 2000 won for a coffee). Nice that we have these affordable no-frills options for short-haul flights to Japan, nearby US territories, or the Asian Mainland.

    Tbone you subscribe to many teenage girls on YouTube? :razz:

    Surfer you sound like the kinda guy I walk up to, bitchslap, then point to the door. That’s your cue to hold back the tears and run out sobbing holding your hand to your cheek.

    I’m sure you knew he was using hangul to write phonetic English. “My name is Hyun-suk. I have one sister and one little brother. Sister is older. What are your hobbies?”

    Glans, I don’t know if you were taking the piss in #15 or if you really can’t read Han-gŭl. If it’s the former, bravo to your deadpan humor. If it’s the latter, I would say you frequent enough Korea-related forums to have a go at it.

    kushibo, when I give attention to languages which I have no opportunity to speak, but which would be fun to read, they are Ancient Greek and Latin. Please understand my culture.
