By the way, I spend roughly 8 to 12 hours a week people watching at the airport, it's one of my top 10 favorite things to do.

You're crazy... or you work for the TSA or Customs. I much prefer to watch the airplanes.

Here's a fashion tip: thigh high stockings and camouflage do not go together.

That might go over in coach, but isn't there a dress code for first class any more?

Evidently not on American Airlines. I agree with the person who posted the comment that they would not want to sit on the airplane seat after that guy.

There is no dress code for first class on any American airline, I assure you of this.

Maybe he and his mistress likes public humiliation.

We are not all old ladies. Some of us are middle aged men dressed as cougars.

I gotta go along that Aartmom respondent (6th one down) in the article. I'd LOVE to sit next to this guy on a plane. Obviously, he's either got a completely different take on what constitutes acceptable societal norms, or he lost a bet. Either way, I'm game for some interesting conversation, and I wanna hear about it.

I'm sure there's a perfectly logical reason for why he's dressed that way; like maybe he's the airline pilot, and it's Casual Friday?

She pulled her skirt down for the news photos in order to make it not look so bad. Notice where the skirt waistband is, it's barely above her crotch. If she pulled it up closer to her navel, the skirt would be a lot shorter.

I really would not want to sit on an airplane seat after someone with little or no shorts/skirt/panties sat on it before me. Ick.

My husband observed a large gathering in the Dallas airport and observed this man wearing a thong with half his butt exposed. He flew first class and I hate to imagine sitting in that seat next, I'm amazed he was allowed to board the plane half naked.
She sounds like a glass half empty kind of person. Half of his butt was covered.
