I’m thinking of attending an Open Day and already own a trouser suit.  Can I wear this instead of a skirt?

This very much depends on the airline but good practice is to always wear a skirt and jacket.  If you are applying to work at a Middle East airline such as Emirates or Etihad Airways, then this rule is even more important and your skirt should sit 1-inch below the knee.   We would also suggest wearing a classic colour such as grey or black with a plain design.  
The image below illustrates the look you should be attempting to achieve and further information can be found here:

This rule is far less important at European and U.S.-based airlines and in reality, you should choose something that makes you feel confident and comfortable.
