From Business Journal:
Southwest Airlines today formally revealed the new look its nearly 40,000 employees will slip into starting in the spring of 2017 and its newest interior layout.
The new uniforms were designed by employees in conjunction with uniform company Cintas, which also had a hand in the uniform refresh United Airlines is undergoing.
Southwest’s new uniforms are a sartorial extension of the “Heart” brand imagethat Southwest rolled out in the fall of 2014. Southwest’s new brand color scheme includes bright blue, red and yellow. Those colors — especially the blues and reds — are reflected in the new uniforms.
Southwest now has three Boeing 737-800 aircraft outfitted with the new interior, including the new seat design. The carrier said it will have 28 planes retrofitted with the new interiors by the end of 2016.
Southwest Airlines’ (NYSE: LUV) new seat has an adjustable headrest, more legroom and more room to hold personal belongings, but no sockets to charge personal devices.
Southwest has its largest hub at Chicago’s Midway Airport.
