FLIGHT attendants have revealed the one thing they always travel with – a $24 (£18) jumpsuit from Amazon.
Nearly 400 cabin crew members have bought the Amazon outfit, and it’s even spawned its own Facebook dedication page called “The Sisterhood of the Travelling Jumpsuit”.
The plain black jumpsuit has been praised by flight attendants for it’s easy fit, and ability to be dressed up or down.
It is also claimed that it “never wrinkles”, making it perfect for packing lightly.
Dubbed the “travelling jumpsuit” or the “flight attendant jumpsuit”, it first became popular in a private Facebook group for flight crew to share their tips and advice on travelling.
The outfits’ popularity led to the separate Facebook group after talk about the jumpsuit flooded the page.
According to The Strategist, images first cropped up in August, before hundreds of other flight attendants shared images of themselves wearing it across the globe.
It has been spotted on crew in the Netherlands, Denmark, Las Vegas and Nevada.
Flight attendant Amelia Parker told The Strategist that it was the “unofficial flight attendant uniform”.
More than 300 members claimed they had bought it already while others said they had bought the jumpsuit multiple times.
The diversity of the item has also been praised, with women in their 20s wearing it as well as women in their 80s.
Mother and daughter Terri Winslow and Kaci Kottemann shared an image of them both wearing the outfit.
Heather Wallace-Wood told Business Insider that she “liked the jumpsuit’s versatility”.
Flight attendant Ana Fuentes agreed, adding: “As someone that lives out of a suitcase it is an essential piece to dress down or dress up with the right accessories.
She said it was her “favourite piece” to wear during layovers in her 29 years of flying.
You can buy it on the Amazon US website for $23.99 (£18), and it comes in six colours.
Flight crew have also shared their top tips on how to avoid jet lag such as fruit-infused water and wearing linen clothing.
An Emirates flight attendant shared her beauty routine which allows her to look polished for an entire flight.
Another flight attendant shared her “alphabet foot trick” she uses to keep the blood flowing during a long-haul flight.
