    I usually wear jeans, tank top, jacket and comfortable sneakers.

    I wear masacara, eyeliner and lipgloss.Plus I use a daily moisturizer with 15 spf.

    Hmm ... interesting. Well certainly having your hair done, a trench, flats, and a nice handbag aren't uncomfortable ... I'd exchange your skinny jeans for aris' cashmere sweats & that should do the trick ...

    Ha how funny! I'm just planning my "new" outfit for a veryyyyy long flight to LA, so I'm back again to my dark brown cashmere sweats:woot:
    I'll be in for 12 hours! and this is in early april - so I'll nead a light trench and a hat - for the plane the air conditioning is killing me.
    the bag has a long strap and can be worn across the body, although is a bit difficult to close - I'll think about alternative
    so something like this

    maybe you should change the company then ....
    i wore the same outfit (sweatpants, soft tods, hoodie, over-coat) last time i had a long flight and i had all the attention i needed at the desk and on the plane ...
    :ninja:
    but i think we should avoid the sweatpants, sincerely .... because it's neither on the plane nor at the desk that i felt bad .... but when my bf picked me up at the airport ............. :doh::rolleyes:

    indeed, aris, what you've posted looks very confy ....

    ugg boots are a must- and lots of thick fatty moisturiser. :D and a hood if you feel weird leaning your hair on those static fake pillows.

    I recently took a 20-hour flight and jeans weren't an issue at all.. they're straight-leg jeans though, I find skinny ones to be a little criminal for such a long trip.

    Loved your outfit, aris, a trench coat is quite the ideal item.. practical and makes you look decent no matter how your hair or skin looks after being stuck on an airplane for a while. I always wear flats but this last time, I found them a little too cold.. it wasn't the plane's air conditioning though, I just seem to have lost temperature.. especially when you fall asleep multiple times. bring some socks!. :ninja:

    I pretty much always travel in the same sort of outfit, be it when taking the train or an aeroplane: trenchcoat, tights and dress, a huge pashmina and comfortable flats or Converse low tops.

    I would always wear something comftable like a pair of jeans or juicy velour pants and a comfy top. I will always have a sweater ot shawl to cover up because it does get quite cold. Moisturizer is a must becuase your skin gets really dry. Also make up like lip gloss/lip stick, blush and eyeliner.

    For longer flights (and early morning/late night flights) I insist on being comfortable, uggs (just not in summer) and either hoodie/yoga pants or a velour or terry tracksuit, but if it's a shorter flight, like if I'm just flying to Milwaukee or Chicago (30 min flight) I will just wear normal, everyday attire.

    Yup! For long flights I always go laid back comfy... Like my recent direct flight from Dubai to Los Angeles 18hours! I rolled up in joggers + a hoodie and loafers.

    For short flights, less than 3-4 hours - I walk in like a rock-star ;)

    Depends on how long the flight is. If it's short, I dress smart. Wear makeup etc.
    If it's a long one, I go for comfort. Some kind of baggy pants, a nice v-neck casual shirt or cashmere knit. No makeup really. Perhaps light foundation at the most and lip balm is essential.

    I'm flying from Australia to New York in a few weeks and I can't believe I'm actually planning my flying outfit already!!:blush:

    I'm going to wear black leggings with an oversized white t shirt & a long grey cardigan and ballet flats...

    I always feel horrible when I'm flying and completely unstylish no matter what i wear compared with those glamorous flight attendants!! But if I wear make up on the plane my skin breaks out something terrible :yuk: -besides, I can't actually be bothered!!

    Planes they can be so funny planes... in one flight you can be hot and cold so I always dress accordingly and comfort as others have said is a big issue. Allot of that depends on what class you are flying... I've only ever flown first class once and what a difference that made in terms of comfort... but at the same time im not loaded and just cant justify the extra cash for a seat... especially when I could spend it on shoes and handbags! However If it's a long flight I normally fly that middle class that BA and Air France offer... and it def is worth the extra little bit and it doesn't break the bank like 1st!

    I would never wear sweats etc... to me that stuff is super comfy I agree but I'd just never wear it out in public appart from sport, its for the house or the gym! I think if you have the right pair of comfy leggings and a mini, or nice skinny jeans or even better cotton or linnen trousers... a simple fitted t shirt and a nice cardi or sweater in cashmere you cant go wrong. I also take a medium sized but thick cashmere shawl as the airport blankets are just awful!

    Accessories are a big thing to... I tend to go minimal with everything... hair and makeup... but not none.... I find a bayswater is the ideal sized handbag.

    for short flights (2-3h) i usually wear skinny jeans, flats, shirts and a cardigan on top.

    i'm flying to malaysia in 2-3 weeks and have been wondering what to wear. might just go for skinny jeans, vest, aa hoodie, flats and a big scarf. comfortable, shouldn't be too cold and shouldn't be too warm as well.
