Of  course, we all know Richard Tyler.  He is a designer who has dressed up the likes of Julia Roberts, Heather Locklear and Jamie Lee Curtis.  Well, he has been hired by Delta Airlines (the biggest airline operator in the world) to design the new dresses for their flight attendants, airport agents and workers.

The dress in question is the Signature RED dress where the size only goes up to size 18.  The acquisition of Northwest Airlines by Delta has left out pre-merger Northwest flight attendants who have filed the complaint that they want to be able to wear the stylish red dress but it is not available in bigger sizes.  They want the design to go up to size 28.

According to Yahoo News:

“The sizing of our red dress has not been an issue with Delta flight attendants since the program’s inception three years ago. This is AFA hype leading up to the election,” Laughlin said.

There are roughly 21,000 flight attendants at the combined airline, 14,000 from pre-merger Delta and 7,000 from pre-merger Northwest.
