How do you fly?

According to Douglas Adams you fall and forget to land on the ground (which is an AMAZING description of what an orbit is).

HA! Jk. I'm flying to Colorado this summer to go to Red Rocks and I'm taking Southwest for free bags and no assigned seats. Plus it's cheap.

I could say I wear a thong and clown make up, but I already stated that I dress business casual and not for comfort.


Whatever you say Gacy.

They came in #1 on a recent survey. I was pleasantly surprised to see my choice, United, come in second.

Oh I forgot to tell you. I'll be wearing casual all the way down to flip-flops. I'm not going to impress anyone.

One thing about flying I do always try to do is ALWAYS wear comfortable clothing. It's bad enough you will be packed in like sardines with a bunch of people of questionable bathing habits, but its made all the more worse if you are wearing restrictive or tight clothing.

Recent thread about 2 girls wearing leggings against the rules of "free flights" spurred me to make this thread.

Just out of curiosity. . . . . .

Many of us fly. I do it several times a year. I usually dress business casual (no leggings) simply because a sports coat allows extra pockets for tickets, receipts etc.

I also fly first class. It's my one "thing". I enjoy the extra legroom, the free booze but when I see an active duty person on the same flight, I switch seats with them. My "nod" to the troops.

But I've always dressed appropriately. Too many times I see people dressed more for a trip to Walmart than a flight to another destination. I think it's tacky as hell.

But that's just my opinion.

What's yours?


i know a few military people who intentionally wear their uniform when they fly because they get treated better and have often gotten free seat upgrades from people like you.

I think I'm right in saying though, that your peculiar spraying habits, and the non dress appearance, unlike AM, precludes you from having a personal assistant to look after you, and that in fact you also start off with the rest of the 9 to 5's and that the military is only too glad to give you a weapons drawn, armed escort to a vacant first class seat several bulkheads away...Sniff!

I wear my basic street clothes. I'm old enough to recall though when people used to dress up to fly but this was before airlines were deregulated and turned into the Greyhound of the skies.

I have my own story about not being let on board. This was about 20 years ago.

My best friend's mother used to work for Delta Airlines. She used to get "buddy passes" which are free flights for friends and family. She would often give them to me. The buddy passes pretty much let you sit anywhere, including first class. However, at the time, they had a rule that if you were in first class on a buddy pass you had to wear "dress slacks" and collared shirt.

I used a buddy pass to visit my girlfriend. I was in first class. On my return flight, I had on jeans because my dress slacks got some gum on the seat of the pants. The gate agent wouldn't let me on the flight until I changed out of my jeans even after I explained my other pants were dirty. I had to argue with this guy and finally just gave in and changed my pants.

Of course, I get in first class and there are people sitting in first with shorts and flip flops (it was a weekend flight). So clearly this rule had no basis in reality at the time.

What pissed me off even more though was when I was getting my boarding pass, the guy in front of me didn't have his ID and they let him on anyway (this was pre-9/11 so airlnies were a bit more relaxed). So my pants are too much to fly first class, but the white guy with no ID wasn't a big deal.

At the time, I was a frequent flyer and would have made more a stink about it, but I didn't want to involve my friend's mom who was still an employee.

Another flight story...

I took a flight to Seattle. On the flight was a family from Africa. They clearly were straight out of the "bush" so to speak. Nice folks, I'm sure as I over heard someone making conversation with them. Don't know if they were refugees or what. Anyway, this was a four hour flight from Chicago. This family had the worst body odor I've ever smelled in an enclosed space. I am talking eye watering rank. I mean every person within like five rows of this family was like WTF when they walked past this section of the plane.

I'll take some ill advised leggings over funky body odor anyday.

I'll admit as a guy, I like women in yoga pants.

When I fly, I usually wear jeans, sport coat and an open collar dress shirt.
I almost always fly Delta...which I hate, but they have a hub nearby.
I always do first for long trips because, being 6'4", I desperately need the leg room.

I'm not going to say I'm fat, but the other day I was standing on a street corner and a cop came up to me and said, "Alright, break it up!".

I usually hang around the airport for a day or so in my purchased military dress uniform waiting for some schmo to give me his first class seat ticket. Then I get bombed and do it all over again in the next city!

Great way to spend a weekend.

In seriousness, I'm sure you could spot the fakes, that is admirable.


I just couldn't resists. The latest threads have ruined me!

United lets active uniformed military personnel board ahead of Global Service members but they do have to show ID.

You're a good egg, DB.
It would be an honor to give up some seats to you on any flight.

Me too however, the performance of displacement of said items is near impossible..unless you have a pair of garden shears at hand.
