$300 designer shoes for AC Rouge flight attendants

http://www.shoeme.ca/products/john-flue ... wer_funnel

Why not just get them sensible runners with good support for a third of the price? It's not like I care how they dress anyways as long at they are covered up. Put the money towards training them to give better service and have a better attitude. If other airlines can do it, so can AC!

The Liz mary janes are so comfortable and stylish, that they were selected (in custom colors) as the official uniform shoe for all female flight attendants on Air Canada Rouge! We challenge you to name another fashion shoe brand that is so dependable, it's been chosen to fly so high. With contrast piping, double buckles, and a new attitude, let The Liz be your sidekick on all your Fluevog adventures (in the air or on the ground).

Air Canada would not be paying retail prices. This is a collaboration with the designer.

from http://www.vancouversun.com/life/fashio ... story.html

Before the final selection was made, she added, the Fluevog shoes were tested for a few weeks along with shoes from other Canadian designers. The Fluevog shoes fared better in tests.

Air Canada Rouge isn’t the first carrier to collaborate with designers. For instance, Virgin Atlantic is working with Britain’s Punk-loving designer Vivienne Westwood, All Nippon Airways has a deal with high fashion designer Prabal Gurung and Air France crew uniforms are by Chistian Lacroix — to name just a few.

AC Rouge has pretty good service compared to mainline... I think they all go through Disney training.

How do you know how much they spent on the shoes? What does it matter to you?

What is wrong with their service and attitude?
I think you found out something but you are out of line with your assumptions and accusations.

Relax! I just found it interesting. The two times that I have flown AC, the flight attendants were pretty rude and abrupt compared to some of the other airlines that I have flown. Granted, GateGuardian has flown Rouge, and he says that the service was pretty good, so I will trust his feedback. My observations were based on my own personal experience with flying AC.

AC has good FAs, and also a lot of rude entitled FAs. The rough rogue FAs are younger, cheaper, and so far seemed to provide slightly better service/attention to mainline ACs. But since AC seem to have overall sub-par FAs for North American airlines, that doesn't say much.

Really? I find AC to be pretty good compared to the American counterparts.

Compared to the Asian airlines, though, they're miles ahead for sure.

No need to relax, I am fine.
Just wanted to know what you based your opinion on. Making accusations based on one flight and a newspaper article is not exactly solid data.
I have flown Rogue a number of time and my only complaint is the legroom (prior to them giving seat choices) and the fact that Air Canada has dropped regular routes to Rogue and you no longer have a choice of what you want to fly.
I have also flown Air Canada dozens and dozens of times over the years and found their attendants as good as most other airlines.( I traveled a lot for business).

I think AA and Delta's FA are about the same as AC in terms of services, especially in the last couple of years.

I don't like the style of Fluevog shoes. Also, the rounded toe shoe style for this particular Mary Jane doesn't fit my foot shape, so there's no way I'd be comfy wearing it.

I don't care what shoes they wear. I wish there were more legroom.
