Dress for Success When You Fly

When a friend of mine checked in for a flight from San Francisco to Vancouver recently, he was surprised that the Air Canada gate agent handed him a first class boarding pass as he was about to get on his flight.

What was so unusual about this? Several things. He had bought an economy class ticket, he rarely flies on Air Canada and thus has no frequent flyer status on the airline, and even more unusually, the flight was half empty so this wasn't an oversell upgrade situation.

So why the extra love? Because he was wearing a suit.

Yep, my pal asked the gate agent why he was so blessed and she answered, "our station manager noticed how well dressed you were and told me to upgrade you."

I, too, was upgraded recently on a United flight from LA to New York's JFK, and I, too, was wearing a suit (if I'm going on a business trip, I wear my suit on the plane, in part because I don't want it to take up too much room in my carry on).

I only have 80,000 lifetime miles in a United's MileagePlus program, and no, before you say, "Yeah, but they know who you are" trust me, they don't.

Not wanting to look the proverbial gift horse in the mouth, I didn't ask the gate agent why I was upgraded from a frequent flyer economy class seat all the way through business class and up to first class (in fact, when I heard my name over the PA system my heart skipped several beats because I assumed that the flight was oversold and I was being bumped, owing to my lack of status).

But I'm going to guess it was because I was the only person in the waiting area who wasn't dressed like I was about to head off the to gym.

"You can't fly on Concorde! You're not wearing a tie!" Think this is nonsense? Well, not really. For a couple of years in the 1980's just before they went belly up, I worked as a consultant for Eastern Airlines (remember them?). As such, each month I was given a stack of flight coupons. I'd just make a reservation and hand one of these coupons over at the ticket counter and I could fly anywhere in the Eastern system for free, in first class no less.

One evening I was flying back to Boston, where I lived at the time, and was curious to see that the agent handed me a seat in economy. "Is first class full?" I meekly inquired. "The way you're dressed, you don't even deserve to fly at all," he scolded. What was my sin? I was wearing a suit and a nice pair of shoes, but had taken off my tie. Into economy I went.

Another time I was booked in business class on British Airways on a pass from Heathrow to New York. Due to an air traffic controller slow down, my flight and virtually all others were canceled, but I convinced the company to put me on the one flight that was still operating, which happened to be on the Concorde. I approached the ticket counter and explained that I was authorized to fly supersonic. "You can't fly on Concorde!" the agent barked at me. "You're not wearing a tie!" True story.

Luckily, this time I had a tie in my carry on. "One sec," I replied. I ducked down behind the counter, quickly repaired my wardrobe malfunction, popped back up and said, "Can I have my boarding pass now?" And off I flew.

If we have to dress up, why don't the passengers? You see, for many years airline employees were required to dress nicely if they were flying on a pass. Women were required to wear a skirt and a blouse, and men at least a sport coat and tie, or in some cases a suit. The rules were especially strict for first class travel. No jeans. No sneakers. No tie, no service. Although most airlines have relaxed these rules, there are a lot of employees who remember the old days. And perhaps they figure, if we had to dress well to fly, what's up with all the passengers who get to sit in first class dressed like Richard Simmons? (It's a bit ironic that these days when you fly first class on British Airways and many airlines, they give you a pair of pajamas to change into).

And although I don't recommend that you show up at the airport in your pj's, it's entirely up to you how you dress when you fly and I do understand that flying is often uncomfortable and many folks want to make the flight as pleasant as possible. But, I'm just saying.

Everything else being equal (same frequent flyer status, etc.) when a flight is oversold in economy and the airline needs to upgrade someone, are they going to choose the passenger in the tank top or the one wearing the nice dress or suit? You know the answer. (Of course, it doesn't hurt to be extra nice to any staff you should encounter.)
How do you dress when you fly? Have you ever been upgraded because you were well dressed?

I've compared the passengers traffic of the 7 busiest airport in EU in 2005, 2010, absolute and relative growth. The results were quite surprising, I bet not even people in Rome are aware of the remarkable growth of Fiumicino in these years.

FCO: 28,683,456 / 36,337,523 / 7,654,067 / +26.68%
MUC: 28,619,427 / 34,721,605 / 6,102,178 / +21,32%
MAD: 42,146,784 / 49,863,504 / 7,716,720 / +18.31%
CDG: 53,798,308 / 58,164,612 / 4,366,304 / +8.12%

I guess that Alitalia's strategy to move nearly everything to FCO had its effects...

Once flying from LA to New York, I was in skinny slacks, turtle neck and a suede jacket; getting in, flight attendant complimented on my outfit (was not wearing a suit, but looked presentable I guess); it was a full flight; next thing I know, just before take off, one attendant came and took me to the business class, telling me it would be comfy there!!!!..It was a nice upgrade...You may not always need a tie, but at least look nice, it may pay off...

New airplane technologies promise easier landings in bad weather
Infrared cameras, GPS offer better look at runway in snow, fog — and devices could reduce cancellations

Jon Hilkevitch's Getting Around

December 19, 2011

In the future, airline pilots may have an extra set of eyes — an infrared camera mounted on the nose of the plane — to help guide them to a safe landing in weather that's so fuzzy gray they would otherwise be forced to divert to a different airport.

Weather problems cause more than 40 percent of all flight delays in the U.S., according to U.S. Department of Transportation data. A recent study commissioned by the FAA estimated the cost of airline delays and cancellations at $6.7 billion a year.........

The new avionics software, produced by Honeywell, combines on a single cockpit screen the enhanced vision of real-time infrared camera images with an artificial but 100 percent accurate schematic of runways and surrounding terrain generated from Global Positioning System data, according to Honeywell and Kollsman Inc., which manufactures the camera technology.

The infrared image shows pilots the view of the runway ahead that they might not be able to see because of low visibility. The synthetic-vision component provides the pilot with awareness of nearby obstacles ranging from air-traffic control towers to mountains that might not be clearly visible in bad weather.

"You can now see the runway upon approach regardless of the visibility conditions, like it's a clear sunny day," said Larisa Parks, Honeywell vice president of crew interface products.

By using the infrared camera image to see runway approach lights in poor weather, pilots would be permitted to reduce the landing minimum from an altitude of 200 feet visibility of the runway environment down to 100 feet, Parks said..........

The Honeywell software contains a data picture of every runway in the world and 90,000 natural and man-made obstacles, according to the company..........

The enhanced vision and synthetic vision systems have been certified for use by the FAA. Honeywell and Kollsman will soon seek certification of the combined technologies, officials said.

It's estimated to cost $500,000 per plane to install the system, according to Elbit Systems of America, the parent company of Kollsman.

No airline is yet using the enhanced vision system, relying instead on what pilots can or can't see through the windshield to determine whether a landing can safely and legally be accomplished.

FAA officials declined to comment on the combined enhanced vision and synthetic vision technology, because no such system has been submitted for certification.

An FAA official did say that these types of systems are still in the research and development phase, noting that many of these technologies are developed initially to provide situational awareness and safety benefits for pilots, and may eventually provide other benefits when they are in operation..........

Moderators, can we please change the title of the following thread to “ DXB / DWC | Dubai Airports” or something along those lines. I would also like to know if it would be possible to go a step further and to change the title to one that would cover all airports within the United Arab Emirates?

No se incluyen aeropuertos operados por ASA y otras sociedades, ya que no hay estadísticas disponibles. A excepción de Tuxtla Gutiérrez, se trata de aeropuertos menores por tráfico de pasajeros.

Why the insanely low figure for Acapulco? It used to be a house-hold name for international seaside resorts, there were songs about it (in Italy!) and numerous references on every US TV show from the past (like Rockapulco in the Flintstones ). What is with those low international figures now?

Quite amazing Haneda is ranked so high. I used it a few weeks ago and it didn't seem too busy at all, yet the numbers put it on par with Heathrow . The international terminal is new and very easy to use.
