I still remember what the crazy lady wore CGD-SIN back in 2011, but I think it was more her actions that prompts the memory of the outfit than the outfit itself.

Ah, but have you seen crazy lady on any subsequent flights?

So is it considered OK to wear QF J pyjamas on an overnight QF flight in Y? To be honest, I don't recall ever seeing anyone do this!

My friend who is QF LTG and current WP1 does, when she doesnt get an upgrade that is. She has a good batting average on upgrades and/or entire Y row to herself.

Yes - why not, they're just pjamas (although I tried to take a set home as a 'special' gift to MBH, once - that's a new thread in itself). Now if you were wearing a set of Peter Alexanders, then I'd call that out

That SQ flight-attendant probably gargled a LOT of milk before whatever they did into the dinner, though ...

For me comfort would be the most important consideration on a 24 hour flight. However, I don't like looking like a slob. A nice pair of dress shorts, light weight chinos, PJ's from any airline to sleep in. As long as people aren't wearing offensive clothing or have bits hanging out everywhere, I don't really care what they wear.

Taking off my bra for long hauls is something Ive never thought of.

I have thought about but never got that far even though it’s dark and I spend the majority of the time tucked in my seat.

I think I just don’t want to deal with putting it on again in those tiny bathrooms!

I’m with Buzz. I like comfort over style. Shorts, and comfy shoes. I used to wear jeans all the time.
Not anymore.
Having climate appropriate clothing to change into before landing is a good idea.

I don't recall ever seeing anyone wear pyjamas in economy either.

I don't understand why comfort is such a concern. I don't feel any less comfortable wearing pleated pants, casual/business shirt and jacket with black leather shoes than I would wearing a t-shirt and shorts with running shoes.

It's not all about you though, John. People should be allowed to wear what THEY feel comfortable in.

I both like and agree.

Personally I feel most comfortable in some jeans, a shirt (with top pocket) and my jacket, and thus as much as possible that's what I'll wear on flights both short and long, but I also know that's not everyone's cup of tea, and as far as I'm concerned whatever you wish to wear especially on long haul is entirely up to you.

I find that if I try sleeping in jeans or slacks, they get all tangled-up. This is the first time I’ll be trying to sleep on one of those lie-flat J seats.

Since I don't check luggage, putting on my tracky-dack type PJ's keeps one's day clothes fresher. I do this in Y, W, J and F.

I seem to find cabins too hot most of the time so wear my travel clothes onto the plane and pack a pair of comfortable bonds shorts and a t-shirt I change into once airborne and want to sleep. I also use the slippers or thongs for out of seat travels.

I struggle to sleep in those seats. A little narrow for me and toss and turn yet if seat I'm upright I sleep longer.

To each their own I guess.

On the one side, I agree with the sentiment that you can wear whatever you want - I know from my perspective that I judge fellow pax on their behaviour, not their attire.

As for wearing shorts, here I must disagree. That another pax wears shorts would not offend me, but I would never do it myself. I prefer to mimimize my skin contact with surfaces such as seat coverings that get almost no cleaning in their multi-year, millions of pax lifetime :)

I guess so; I’ve never slept a wink on a ‘plane sitting up, and tend to be generally pretty pissed-off by the end of the experience. But a J seat would be less constricting, my knees won’t be jammed up against the seat in front, and it looks like the everyone-gets-an-aisle-seat layout means no climbing over people nor a need to climb over people for toilet adventures ... so I may give sitting-up a try if lying-down fails, ta!

I like to wear my velvet smoking jacket, what I do miss is my valet being able to dress me after take off. Sadly, these days, he must stay in economy.
That’s pretty rough on your valet; I have been allowed in J, and am told I’ll be allowed to go up to F as long as it’s only for the purposes of dressing/undressing the master. Oh, and I do have to wear a paper bag over my head, but that’s a normal requirement.

:p

I don't have a smoking jacket, but I hear you. Due to a personal low period, my three habitual concubines also get the Y treatment these days. It pains me for them, but....

My better half has a variety of airline PJ’s she could lend me ... they’re all different airlines to the one we’re flying, but I guess the pants are un-branded so nobody will ever know. :)

I wouldn’t worry. I wear my Cathay Pacific Shanghai Tang F PJs QF J
