    Check out the guy's socks in slide 30!! LOL

    Love the pic of the woman doing her nails in the washroom. "...turbulence hit and I came out looking like a candy apple...luckily, the TWA stewies were able to give me a sponge bath at my seat..."

    We flew business class to Paris on Air France two years ago... The bathroom was huge and they had Clarins products embedded in case you needed to give yourself a mid-Atlantic emergency facial.

    The author states: "Among the cavalcade of pajama pants, tracksuits, nightgowns, painting rags, and ill-fitting sweatshirts..." I fly at least 3 times a year and I've never seen someone wearing a night gown.

    He also states: "..
    it is wise to wear some of the clothes you’d like to have access to again while in transit." Hahaha. That may backfire. I don't think anyone wants me to be wearing my swimsuit on our flight.

    I agree. Has this guy even traveled on a plane: "...
    but I can manage to pull together an attractive trouser, a pressed shirt, close-toed shoes." Has he ever been through security???

    Though, I do remember my grandparents getting dressed up to fly to Vegas in the early 70s.

    I love the old pics. Especially the guy reclining in his seat. Look how much room they had!! And the picture of the luggage stowed over the seat in just cargo netting.

    i am suspecting the author has never been on a plane in his life

    thanks cp for the link of those old photos.
    none of those folks looked like they were going to a beach vacation.

    You know, I remember when you dressed well for the airplane. I got many free upgrades to first by dressing up a bit. Now a lot depends on where you're going, and most of us are referring to travel to Aruba. No need to get all gussied up, but when we fly to Aruba, we wear nicer shorts and shirts, but that's just us. As they say "different strokes" so wear what you feel comfortable in, but please no jammie pants!

    I'd be OK with that!

    Can't say I've noticed too much what other people are wearing. For me it's a comfortable pair of jeans and a plain T. I worry more about what shoes are easy on and off for going through security.

    I did wear long khaki pants on the plane once or twice, but only because they were suggested for horseback riding. Turned out to be good advice.

    The best part of an Aruba vacation is being able to leave the stuff you wear to the office..... home.
