Also, don't put your feet on the bulkhead.

Submitter: Most air travelers say taking off your shoes is okay, although an etiquette expert calls those people goddamn savages

As former aircrew, I find it unwise to take your shoes off while flying. Or to wear open-toe sandals, flip-flops, and any type of casual footwear aboard aircraft because you are not at the beach.

YOU'RE IN A PRESSURIZED METAL TUBE LOADED WITH PEOPLE, CARGO, JET FUEL, HURDLING THROUGH THE SKY AT 500+ MPH.

 I still moonlight as a bartender. My shoes need to stay on, for your sake. Yes, I have left work and gone straight to the Falcons game.

As a former Life Support/Egress engineer, I used to support crash investigations and have seen the results.  When I fly, I wear good footwear, jeans, long sleeves, and make sure I cinch my belt until it's as tight as I can manage it the moment the pilot spools up the engine for takeoff.

This. I always figure if there is and RTO or landing gone wrong and I end up in a twisted tube of burning metal, but alive, I'm going to appreciate that I left my leather shoes on as I GTFO. Especially if I happen to be wearing the ones with the composite safety toe as I will be if I've been somewhere that may require safety footwear.

If your feet stink, don't ride airplanes.

All the more reason to bring back smoking in aircraft.

Once you add burning leaf to the miasma, it's all ok.

Oh man, the shiat I see people wearing to fly makes me laugh.
If things go wrong, half the people on the flight are farked beyond belief.

Hey lady, what happens if you get stuck in a survival situation and your wearing high heels, a mini skirt and a halter top.

Why didn't Annie Lennox tell me about this??
 
2017-11-20 07:03:46 PM  
If I'm over the ocean, does it really matter if my shoes are on (from a safety standpoint)? Isn't a crash like that going to mean a very high likelihood of death?

I keep my shoes on anyway because I'm not a savage.
 
2017-11-20 07:05:12 PM  
Some passengers take their shoes off because their feet sweat.  What they might not realize, is that their feet also stink, maybe as a result of aforementioned sweating.  I've experienced flights where you could smell peoples' dirty feet within a ten foot radius.  Clueless self-entitled primates.  I guess this is where the phrase "great unwashed" is more appropriate.   Deserve to be stowed below with the luggage and small cattle.

Takeoff and landing, yes, sensible shoes and on.  Over FL180?  500 miles west of Anchorage on a trans-pac?  Anything that doesn't give me ninety seconds to get my shoes on is going to be fatal.
 
2017-11-20 07:06:26 PM  
The plane cabin is not your living room. Please leave your shoes on.

Oddly enough, the article doesn't mention those passengers who try to take over three or four overhead compartments with all their belongings.
 
2017-11-20 07:13:53 PM  
On a long haul flight your feet definitely swell up and you can be downright miserable if you wear the wrong shoes. At some point comfort takes precedent, even if you are a smelly hippy that just hitchhiked across the continent.
 
2017-11-20 07:13:58 PM  
My feet don't smell because I wash myself like, every day.
I also take my shoes off. So suck my toes, haters.

So you expect me to bring with me full survival gear when I take a day trip like I do every couple of weeks?  And what flights are you taking that you expect to actually live if something goes horribly wrong?

/I take my shoes off
 
2017-11-20 07:22:38 PM  
Hold up - passengers also fart aboard planes. They belch. They have stinky breath. Smell like sweat, or old dirty clothes. They sometimes might even shart.

It might be nice if some of you would not mind if I wear my improvised gas mask.
You stink. So do your nasty feet. That's why I wear a sweat shirt, or tee-shirt so I can pull that collar over my nose... do not give me any dirty looks.

y'all stanky

When a shower is inaccessible so you just wash your stinky bits using soap, a cloth and a sink.

No shoes is for after the flight when you make fists with your toes... then kill a bunch of fake terrorists.

It is the best Thanksgiving movie ever made. There is no debate on this fact.

I used to only fly in a suit or jeans & sports coat. Once security got silly, I switched to shorts and sandals. It's too much of a hassle and the crash risk is negligible so safety isn't a real concern.

Yeah, I was already a shoe leaver-on type, and watching that Tom Hanks movie really sealed the deal.

The days of etiquette in relation to air travel are a very old memory. I couldn't even read TFA because I have developed such antipathy to air travel that every time an aircraft passes overhead I give thanks that I'm not on it.

Leaving your shoes on is fine if the flight is an hour or two, but if it's 4 or more hours, I'm taking mine off. The low cabin pressure makes my feet swell and blood flow becomes an issue. Being stuck in cattle car seating is constricting enough.

/my feet don't sweat much and I keep them clean

Well given that only 1 in 1.2 millions flights actuator crash....

I'll wear whatever I damned want.

Maybe not halter top though. Fat hairy belly never goes over well.

I hate wearing shoes. I wear them to drive, in stores, and walking around at work (just not at my desk.  NO farking WAY.  Shoes for eight hours? Nope.
