Dress code for flying standby

Dress code

What is the dress code for flying standby?

Airlines have dress codes for standby passengers. These dress codes vary from airline to airline. You'll find the dress code for the airline you are going to travel with in the Airline Notes here or in the StaffTraveler app.

Some airlines may require you to dress in business attire or business casual as you might get upgraded to business class. They can refuse you to board if you are not dressed appropriately. Always make sure that you have suitable clothes at hand.

As a representative of the airline, you are also expected to be polite to the airport and airline employees. Be kind and do not annoy the gate agents. They'll let you know when you can board. Bonus points for bringing some snacks for them and the flight crew!
