Flying Tips & Opinions
Having just finished 2 legs of a 3 leg vacation, I can only say that how America dresses to fly is still appalling. Tight jean shorts, tee-shirts that expose rolls of flesh, multiple bangles clanking on arms and necks, underarm exposure, and tobacco-reeking jackets, all are a danger to yourself and others. And by danger I mean discomfiting, if not nausea inducing. Add to that highly spiced take-out meals and I'm surprised that the FAA hasn't intervened.
The Independent Traveler, a blog site at http://tinyurl.com/3qldzz7, has a great sotry about Lady Gaga flying in a totally WRONG outfit that became life-threatening! The anecdote is followed by suggestions on what to wear when flying; a good refresher for all of us.
