According to its own statements, the airline Eurowings will operate flight number 4 on November 2022, 1.000, on which the crew will wear sneakers.

"The next airline where flight attendants swap high heels for sneakers," says travel blogs about the Eurowings cause. Numerous airline employees have spoken out on social media in favor of wearing sports shoes on board aircraft. There is now "an international discussion" about the choice of shoes, writes the Swedish newspaper "Aftonbladet".

Some of the pioneering airlines incorporating in-flight sneakers into their uniform wear orders include Ukraine's SkyUp Airlines, Iceland's Play and Japanese carrier Zipair. Eurowings has deliberately declared its "Sneaker Flydays", which currently always take place on the first Friday of each month, as a test phase. First, the Lufthansa Group airline wants to analyze the reactions of its own staff and customers. Should the feedback on the sneakers remain so positive, Eurowings will consider increasing the frequency of the "Sneaker Flydays" in the new year.
