Craig left the following question on the “Ask Lucky” page of the blog:
An etiquette question for a incident I experienced and wanted to see if there were any others you or your readers experienced.
I was on a overnight CX flight SYD-HKG in business and as we were taxiing to take off, the bloke in the seat next to me proceeded to take his shirt off and put another one on but then preceded to take his pants off and, sat in his seat in his stripy boxers. He did not change into anything else the whole flight and ate, read and slept this way, not using a blanket to cover up his legs or boxers.
It was rather a unusual situation and I could tell the flight attendants were embarrassed. On landing he again changed shirts and put his pants on in his seat.
Am I the only one that finds that unacceptable? Have you seen a thing like this?

The older Japanese gentleman seated across from me (who I’m 99% sure is a Japanese TV personality) decided not to wear underwear with his pajamas. I know this because when he changed into his pajamas he prominently placed his underwear on the tray table. He then proceeded to fart most of the way to New York. I’m pretty sure we only needed half a tank of gas to get to New York, cause he provided the other half…
Anyone else? 😉
