CW Pajama Etiquette

Since the new F pjs no longer have F white on blue blazing for all to see, but much more subtle, would it be in poor taste to switch into a "new" F top while flying CW? It not only is comfortable but leaves my shirt unwrinkled when I arrive.

I say who cares... Travel, within reason, in whatever makes you comfortable. If you want to put on the PJ's and relax, who cares what other people think.

With that said, Mr. "Tank Top with Sandals On" that was next to me on that summer flight to Vegas on Southwest...Don't ever do that again.

I do this all the time in J and on airlines which don't provide PJs in F. If anyone has a problem with it, it's jus that - their problem.

If you feel self-conscious about it, how about changing into another comfortable sweatshirt to leave your shirt unwrinkled?

Okay, starter for 10:

Which term was coined by a French psychic researcher, Émile Boirac (1851–1917) in his book 'L'Avenir des sciences psychiques'?

Still seems pretentious to me. Surely the BA F PJs aren't the only comfortable ensemble you can muster?

The nob factor can be eliminated by carefully hand embroidering the word CHOICE beneath the word FIRST

Pretentious... oh come on... Should one wear CX's Shanghai Tangs, or AF's Christian Lacroix or SQ's Givenchy? BA IMHO has the most lightweight = comfortable PJ's. As we all know the BA cabin is usually too hot, and the light fabric PJ's help us make it through the flight. I have seen many people don their "souvenir" PJ's in J. I see absolutely no problem with any F garments in J or Y for that matter!!!! What ever wets your whistle

Coming back from CPT last month on the upper deck, about half the cabin changed into "F" pjs before take-off - including myself but I appeared to be the only one with the new ones having picked them up on the way out to CPT a couple of days earlier.

Have to agree with upgrade lover, BA PJs are a great lightweight fabric that seems perfect for the stuffy atmosphere on the plane.

My impression is coloured by people like the gentlemen I sat next to on Sunday night. Gets on, asks crew for hanger and then booms at top of his voice 'I'm going to change into my FIRST pyjamas now' and then proceeds to parade through the cabin so that everyone knows he has been op-up'ed once. Twunt.

It's almost as bad as having your Gold card tags on hand baggage.

Hi,

Maybe I'll wear my VS pjs on the CW overnight flight back from SFO on the 22nd!

I do like changing into pjs as it makes me feel more comfortable ( esp when changing back into the clothes on arrival)

The VS ones are all black with a small VA label which almost cannot be seen.

Regards

TBS

DYKWHW???!!!

To be honest I don't really nottice what people wear in Club World - if they were wearing First pyjamas, they would need to tell me.

Not sure that my recent purchase of bright pink with red poka dot pyjama bottoms is equally as subtle and unnoticed, but people probably just think that I have escaped from the funny farm...

I have always happily worn my VS PJs when flying CW. It makes a point that some airlines do supply PJs for a J price. I change into PJs on all long-haul flights - day or night. Use to changed into shorts for day flights to feel more comfortable but the legs got cold half way through the flight

Flew EOS from JFK. I was in my CX PJs and another pax was in their BA PJs. It merely shows that
a) you are well travelled
b) as an experienced traveller, you know how to be comfortable when travelling.
