They definitely allow pajamas, but for not fully clothed, some airlines may be against it. If you keep it discreet, it would be fine. It is not illegal as far as I know, however, some conservative airlines such as Saudia require you to be fully clothed.

No one will judge you, just do whatever’s comfortable ;)

I quite often wear shorts and my own t shirt top that I am more comfortable in.

I slept in just underwear recent overnight flight in F on emirates a380. Completely closed suites so I didn’t fee unconfortable. Perks of flying first I guess!

Wear whatever you want, or don't want, within reason. I find many PJs
are too warm by the time I am under the blanket and also allowing for
warm cabin temperatures, so although I change into PJs in the loo, once under the blanket I slip them off.

This is the first thing I do once the seat belt sign goes off on an overnight j leg. Straight into pj’s. In saying that they are winter ones with a shirt. I always find it cold. I know that SQ don’t care.

Illegal to wear pyjamas? Ha! You should see what people are wearing down my local Woollies...

but what if they're a nudest?
I usually only fly for leisure so mostly travel with either chinos or cargo shorts in summer and a t-shirt and just sleep in those.

Thank you very much for your comments. I was always thinking you need to wear shirt and trousers when travelling on Business.

The other day in NZ J I had a gentleman who went to sleep in tailored shorts. I personally wouldn't be putting on boxer shorts etc, I'd either use full length PJ's or some comfortable shorts and a t-shirt that you would be happy to be seen in outside of the house.

I'm not keen in getting into PJ's or just shorts and T's for sleeping on any aircraft, it's the just in case scenario, a bit like kicking shoes and socks off, no thanks, I'd sooner be ready, just in case... My brother is a QF Pilot, and commends my approach for safety over comfort. I think you can sleep OK in a relaxed style of clothing and loafers at least as minimal footwear.
