DECIDING what to wear on a plane can be difficult, but there are just some items that passengers should aim to avoid.
From pyjamas to perfumes, travel experts and former flight attendants have revealed the three things you shouldn’t wear on a plane.
Susan Fogwell, a former flight attendant with more than 22 years of experience, told Travel + Leisure that your pyjamas should remain in your suitcase.
She said: “Instead, wear loose-fitting, comfortable pants with an elastic band.
“For example, Athleta’s Balance Pant is just as comfortable as pajamas, but they’re pants.”
According to Susan, business class passengers can wear pyjamas on a flight, if they’re gifts from the airline.
In the same article, travel experts also warned passengers away from wearing perfumes and strong fragrances on flights.
This is because overpowering scents can travel through the cabin and create problems for passengers who are sensitive to particular smells.
One woman was told off last year for wearing too much perfume during a flight.
While most people wouldn’t even dream of wearing a swimming costume on a plane, Hawaiian airlines have had to specifically ban “swimming attire” in their dress code.
The airline’s website read: “Swimming attire is not acceptable.”
Typically, passengers who want to travel comfortably will tend to wear leggings in the cabin.
But aviation expert Christine Negroni, who released a book on the world’s most mysterious air disasters revealed that leggings could prove fatal – or at the very least leave terrible scars – if the plane you are travelling on crashes or has a fire in the cabin.
She told Sun Online Travel: “You might have to escape through a cabin fire or there could be a separate fire on the ground once you leave the aircraft.
“Everyone is wearing yoga pants on planes now, but I avoid all artificial fibres because they are more likely to burn and stick to you if there is a fire.
“I’d advise wearing cotton clothes or anything made of natural fibres.”
Another flight attendant has revealed why passengers should never wear shorts on a plane.
