Dress for first class

by on
in Business Etiquette,Workplace Communication

A travel blogger reports on a friend who checked in for an Air Canada flight and was handed a first-class boarding pass.

Why? He wasn’t a frequent flier. He was an infrequent flier on a cheap ticket.

The traveler asked why.

“Our station manager noticed how well-dressed you are and told me to up­­grade you,” the gate agent said.

A similar thing once happened to the blogger himself, possibly because he was the only person at the gate not wearing gym clothes. And years ago, a ticket agent had almost barred him from the Concorde because he wasn’t wearing a tie (he whipped one out of his carry-on).

Lesson: Don’t show up at the airport in your pajamas.
