Customer-facing American Airlines employees have begun field
testing the carrier's new uniforms, which were designed by Lands' End.
More than 1,000 American employees donned the uniforms for
the first time Tuesday to begin the six-month test.
The uniforms are slated to replace the ones American rolled
out in September 2016, which spawned grievances and eventually lawsuits from
employees who reported that they caused allergic reactions.
American says the new uniforms have been designed in
collaboration with frontline employees to ensure "the highest levels of
textile safety, comfort, durability and brand integrity."
