    I know we're supposed to wear civilian clothes when traveling right now, but should I sport some kacki's and a polo, or shorts and a tee?

    wear whatever you want, still dress tasteful as you would on an af installation
    most of the time when we would deploy they would want use to at least wear pants.....
    but mostly only for the flight from the us to overseas....

    Airlines don't give a shit about individuals traveling on orders. To them we are just another passenger.

    It's more of a force protection issue; to NOT travel in uniform. If the plane gets hijacked by terrorists, if you are in uniform you will, almost and for certain, be made an example of.

    Traveling on orders, I would get to my destination, I would find a gym or somewhere to change into uniform and then check in.

    Most DO NOT wear their uniform while traveling on PCS/TAD orders.

    Shorts = too cold.

    I don't recall ever being too hot on a flight but I do remember freezing my nuts off on several ocassions. If you wear shorts, especially on a long flight, those puny blankets aren't going to be enough to keep you warm.

    Plus, if the plane should ever go down, the only thing between you and icy cold water or fire are the shorts you have on.

    If your plane is diverted and you land somewhere it's not very warm, you're going to look funny shivering.

    It boils down to personal safety and comfort.

    Jeans or slacks, short sleeve shirt, light jacket, sneakers/shoes.
