I always wear shorts (gym shorts/footy shorts) and a tshirt. I normally change into these in the lounge prior to boarding. Most of my flights are QF and never an issue, also did the same on a recent return trip to Europe flying EK and again no problems.

You can wear whatever you wish...once you are covered by a blanket, nobody cares. However, I like to wear my prized first class Emirates pj's as they are stretchy and thick enough to keep you warm without a blanket. My biggest issue is simply getting too hot after over indulging on wine and food.

I change in to the airline PJs as soon as I get them but use one of my own t-shirts as I prefer the short sleeves. I've done just the undies on EK first as their cabin gets too warm. :)

I wear a polo shirt and light weight absolutely crush proof trousers on long haul flights and sleep/work/eat/read/look out of the window in these. If the airline offers PJs I take a pair back to give to family members.

I wear my Qantas jammies every long distance flight regardless of airline! Never had any (voiced) complaints!

just wear something sensible. I often just change into my gym shorts and t shirt once the cabin lights dim for sleeping time and have never had a problem.

I travel long haul overnight often and never bother changing these days. I find it just too much hassle. This last trip, LA-Auckland return, I wore polo and jeans and slept in those. 7 hours sleep straight on the way back no drama and perfectly comfortable.

With Emirates it's gym shorts and a t/shirt. With Qantas their pjs on the longer flights and just the top on the shorter ones eg Melb /Sing. Saves my shirt if I miss the mouth with food or heavens forbid wine!

Yeah I was in F a fews times in shorts and thongs not even sandals. I got some sour looks but I just smile back.

Wear what you like mate, but respect the Islamic culture on the MH flight. When on airlines that don't give out PJs to J class, I enjoy wearing their competitors' PJs. Similarly, if cabin crew don't lower cabin temp to a comfortable level, I'm happy to go topless to make a point.

If passengers can wander around in bare feet, why should anybody care what you have on your lie flat
