Thumbs down Taking the F PJs is stealing...

...if you believe the package labeling (backside) which says "IMPORTANT INTENDED ONLY FOR USE ON THE AIRCRAFT"...

...and some of our "police" representatives:

Seems to meet all five points to me.

You should have posted that in the thread in which Dave_C made the comment. Looks a bit childish otherwise.

I do believe the package labeling. I do believe that I should not wander off through customs and immigration still wearing them.

Crikey! So the wearing of First PJ's in Club is officially endorsed by the airline. Of course, it is good form to pop them in the washing machine beforehand and run a 40C cycle, as the label clearly advises

Utter claptrap. I have often been asked if I would like a wrapped one to take away if I don't want to use them (usually on day flights).

Edit: Just saw who the OP is, shouldn't have taken seriously!

The airline also doesn't use them again they just get thrown away so they are actually more than happy for you to take them.

I actually often reuse my BA PJs to avoid wasting yet another pair but if I do use them I take them so someone can get the benefit rather than have them thrown away.

We would rather you take them and put them to what ever uses you wish. It is one less thing to clean up in the First Cabin. There is a reason that they have the logo on them, and that is for you to go out there and be a little advert every time you wear them, and they do just get thrown away if you leave them.

I think the packaging is a disclaimer to stop people claiming that they are not up to being used as a track suit or as day wear!

Or in my case, running across the room with a paint brush in hand - the most inopportune moment possible for the left foot to get snagged by the trouser leg. Whoopsie-daisy and falling flat on my face.

No big deal, everything cleared up nicely but there was a chilling moment as I thought I'd have to sand the floors next.

Well said ^

Still the OP is thought of as a bit of a troll round here

Hear, hear.

Well, to be honest, the OP is doing him/herself no favours by starting a thread with the sole purpose of trying to make a long-time and respected poster look bad.

Childish, indeed.

Isn't there a bridge somewhere that's missing a troll?

Interesting point e.g. does that mean BA would rather deplaning WT & WT+ pax pick up the unused portions of amenity kits as they pass thru the premium cabins?

Shouldn't you be asking about compensation... no-one has reported a warning not to run while wearing them?

(you could have been carrying scissors afterall - think of the children! )

Not really, as the wash bags, left in seats whether they've been used or not, are collected by the crew for recycling.
