it is amazing how people now a days look like trash, bikers with t-shirts. business guys and gals in work out cloths and so on. the old people who fly still pull out the sky blue leasure suits and always get a smerk.i do dress up, not ties but always dress up.

When I first began with the airline, the dress code was a coat and tie. Now, it has relaxed to nice pants and collared shirt in first class and collared shirt with jeans in coach as the minimum. I tend to wear a golf shirt and some decent pants with my leather walking shoes on the plane, even if first class looks like it is full. After all, you never know.....

No, i don't "dress up" up for flights. I just wear my casual clothes, baggy jeans,loose jackets. Comfortable clothes is a must! Specially when you're gonna be stuck in a 32 in seat pitch sitting in an upright position for 10 hours.

I always wear casual clothing whenever I fly, depending on the weather. Usually jeans or khakis and sometimes polo shirts. I make sure the material is comfortable so I don't feel uneasy, especially on a long haul flight.

No, I just make sure the clothes I'm wearing are clean and casual, but not too casual. I usually wear a good pair of pants and a nice tee-shirt. (I wear tee-shirts year round anyways, so it dosen't matter.)

I usually just wear some khaki pants and a nice shirt. On one occasion I did wear a baseball jeresey when I flew out to California to see a baseball team . And if i'm going to a tropical destination I will wear some shorts and a hawaiin shirt .

I usually dress up somewhat like others have said already-something like a v neck sweater or a turtle neck, khakis, and my leather blazer and black dress shoes. When I was younger- early 90s when I was like 5,6,7- I would dress up in my suit and tie since my dad was- Delta at that time required adult non revs, if I remember correctly, to really dress up. I am glad they are not that strict now as I really would hate to wear a suit and tie on a flight.

I just wear some hip clothes or something cool. Or sometimes even shorts. Depends on the occasion/weather. But on my way back from SFO to DEN than to BIL, I wore khaki shorts a long sleeved shirt, when I got to BIL it was below zero! Brrrrrrrrr!

The minimum for me is dress pants and polo shirt, but that is if I am in economy. I might wear a dress shirt too on the flight, depending on the destination (no tie). If I am in First/Business, minimum is dress shirt and dress pants, with a tie. Sometimes I leave the sportcoat, others no. These are personal regulations to try and look the most presentable I can. It does irritate me a little when I am dressed up like item number 1 for a Delta Express flight to MCO when everyone around me is staring at me for being "dressed up", rather than in their torn shorts and wrinkled t-shirt.

Depends on the flight. For longhauls I like to wear a suit on J class, and smart casual on Y. For short hauls I will wear reasonably casual clothes, but then again I always dress reasonably smartly anyway (no jeans etc)
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I usually dress up. I tried not dressing up once and the way I was treated wasn't as good as when I did dress up a little. Seems that the airline personel treat you with a little more respect. Thats what I have gotten out of it.
Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.

As I said in another post on here, dressing smart also helps if the airline is looking to upgrade people, after all they are not going to upgrade some scruffy student to sit in the more expensive seats - worth considering when yuor next preparing to travel.
I dress smartly when I'm flying scheduled airlines, because of the above and usually because I'm on a non-rev standby ticket,but when I'm flying on a charter, I wear what ever I pick up off the floor first .
