Dress for comfort or for perks?

Many Americans, myself included, prefer to dress for comfort on travel days.

Walking around airports, you’ll see people wearing all sorts of things – ranging from pajamas and flip-flops to suits with ties. A little known travel secret is that if you look like you are traveling on business, you might get bumped up for free to the business section of the flight (if a seat is free).

So on your next travel on an airline, think more of the larger picture at hand than just how you want to dress that day – it might improve your travel experience!
