When is It OK to Take Off Your Pants on a Plane?

I’m at FTU DC right now, and I had somewhat of a traumatizing experience on my flight over. I flew via US Airways going from SNA-PHX-DCA, and was only upgraded on the first (shorter) leg of the trip. That meant that I had a 4 hour flight in Economy, which I didn’t think would be that bad since I was traveling with family in the seats next to me.

On the other side of the aisle, however, was a young lady who seemed to be a little warm. So much so, in fact, that she decided to air out the lower half of her body. I had to take a picture, and if nothing else, it was a reminder of how important it is for me to travel in a premium cabin.

For reals? Yeah...for reals.

For reals? Yeah…for reals.

But at the same time, I simply wouldn’t have this interesting of a story to tell if I was up front. So I ask…when is it OK to take off your pants on a plane? Even a little bit?


  1. Thank god I travel with antiseptic wipes. I’m going to start wiping down coach seats in addition to everything else I can get my hands on. Or that someone’s else’s booty might have touched. Gross!

  2. I gotta ask, if she were say 21 or so, and thin, and decent looking….how would this conversation go?

    Having asked that question, I will ask this – why didn’t you contact a FA to address it?

    • Well the conversation would probably be very different. But I didn’t contact a FA because I simply looked away and didn’t want to bother with it again!

  3. I sent this link to everyone I know! It made their day!

    I’m glad you waited until she had some food on her tray to take the picture. :)
