A couple of months back, we read about this furore over how United offloaded two girls for wearing leggings (read here for the article). The official reasons for this was : they were traveling using company benefits and needed to adhere to a specific dress code.
We are not debating this.
Rather, we are wondering aloud whether there should be any form of dress code at all for folks in general getting onto a plane. Recall we wrote about etiquettes (here)? Granted it was about the private jets but should not the same principles apply? Yes you may still wear large sunglasses to appear mysterious, although not at security though. They want to look you in the eye… heheh.
Certainly one would not dress skimpy like one’s at the beach, just because one’s on a plane heading to an island for the sun & sand right? And we are certainly not advocating to be dressed to the nines for a flight, as if it was a gala function one’s attending too. On the one hand you have restaurants, clubs and even some hotels that impose dress codes for entry. On the other one would not regulate how people dress when taking the bus…
So the question remains. Should there be dress codes imposed? What do you think?
So, is flying taking the bus or more like going to a restaurant? Does it even make sense to have this comparison? What
has have been the worst of dressing that you’ve seen in your flight experiences?
UPDATE: we recently read that there are fine print T&Cs in your flight booking that make reference to appropriate dress. Heheh… guess it was there all along just not something “significant” enough to enforce.
