It would have to depend on the meeting that I would be going to or who I would be having the meeting with. Otherwise I would dress down comfortably and have my clothes with me.

never. although i'm always flying 3000 miles to and from school, so i refuse to dress up for a 2 hr trip to the airport/wait for plane and 6 hr plane ride.

Comfort and style but it depends where I'm going...

Depends if I feel like it, or where I'm going, or who I'm going with. I'm only 16, so it's not a biggie if I dress down. I used to wear sweats and stuff when I was younger though. Like that trip to Italy when I was 13 - the outfits were embarrassing. Now, generally, t-shirt and jeans (loose for longer flights) and a hoodie with sneakers. To dress up, right below the knee black leather flat boots (winter places) and a dressier jacket. I might wear a long boho skirt to tropical places, or a loose dress with gladiator sandals. I bring stuff like a hat or a scarf to mix my look up if I get bored with it, so I usually look different from before boarding and after I get off. Make-up wise, mascara, eyeliner and Bene-tint usually does the trick.

If it's a red eye, there's no WAY I'm getting dressed up just to sleep - and probably near a bunch of hot, but also sleeping, guys. But yeah, if it's the middle of the day, I might wear a cute skirt and blouse or skinny jeans with a tank.

I always try to look cute but that doesn't mean that I'm not comfortable. I could wear a long jersey dress and be just as comfortable as I would be in sweats.

I am all about looking cute, classy and comfortable anywhere I go! The 3 C's is how I roll.

I dress nice but exactly dressed up. I usually put a pair of heels or boots in my carry on so I can wear UGGS on the flight then change before we land ....

for short-distance flight i will, but for long-distance flight comfort comes first.

my aunt is a flight attendant, too, and flying stand-by on her companion pass, you never know if you're going to be bumped to first or business! plus, you're representing the airline to an extent, so nice dress is required!

I always dress up for a flight for a variety of reasons. My parents always made sure I was dressed to a T when I was a young flyer. :) One of my aunts was a flight attendant and that is how she flew and I wanted to be like her, so I would get all cute. She also told me about all of the perks you get if you dress nicely. Now my husband works for an airline and we fly "non-rev" which requires it.

I would never wear sweats or flip-flops in public anyway- but my flight outfits usually consist of jeans and a t-shirt. ALWAYS with ballet flats (they're all I wear anyway) and always with my hair and makeup done. That's how I present myself normally though, so I don't feel like I'm "dressing up" by any means.

I'm always dressed to impress - and taking a flight is no different.

i don't really dress up, but i'm usually presentable...i.e. my trusted j. brand skinnies, ballet flats, and a cute top and bag. sometimes i'll wear heels depending on how much walking i'm gonna be doing, but not usually. i'd never be caught dead in an airport in sweats or something though.

I hate flying and I typically try and knock it out for first thing in the morning. So I have that rolled out of bed, threw on something comfy, and knotted my hair up look!

usually i want to be comfortable. if i'm seeing someone i haven't seen for a long time right when i get off the plane, i will maybe dress up or i will change in the bathroom.

I ALWAYS dress up to fly. But that's just the way I was brought up. The only time I would fly as a kid was to go see relatives, so my mom would make me dress up, so I guess it was embedded in my mind at an early age to look nice when catching a plane.
