Packing for Business Travel

Trouble-Free Clothing

What to wear on a plane? Both men and women may be tempted to wear their not-so-best jeans and sneakers for the flight, especially since they know they'll be squeezed into a tight seat and could run into delays. By dressing in business casual for travel (yes, even dress jeans with a jacket works), if a checked bag is lost, you won't have to arrive at a meeting looking as if you've just come from mowing the lawn or shopping for groceries. Airlines cater to business travelers; dress the part and you may find you get an added measure of service.
