I don't know that you are expected to wear nicer clothes in business I think it's more to do with the fact that if you can afford to buy business class tickets you can probably afford nicer clothes.
I personally prefer it the other way round, buy nice clothes but sit in economy.

Well if I were in the public eye like Mary is I'd be dressing to be photographed too.

In one of the articles about their Tasmania arrival, they said M&C travelled business class. Economy is usually the back half of the plane.

You aren't actually expected to wear nicer clothes in business class, but they (the airline) sort of prefer if you wear decent (I should have used that word before) clothing, as you are 90% of the time sitting with business men. I know this because one time when I was flying to Sydney with my family, the travel agent botched our reservations so we had no seats, but there were openings in business class and the lady behind the counter rang the head honcho and asked if we could have the business class seats. She said into the phone "They are nicely dressed...not slouchy" and we got put in business class.

Oh serious? So there's like an invisble line which dictates economy from business..times must be tough for JetStar I have to admit I'm not aware of JetStar having anything but economy, but I have never flown with them.

Thanks JessRulz.

Flying into Hobart Mary et al, flew Qantas domestic and that does have a business class. Flying out to Melbourne they flew Jetstar which being a budget airlines doesn't have a business class.

Anyhow, does JetStar have business class? I don't think they do for domestic travel. I've always thought it to have been an economy based airline (up until the recently introduced international flights which I believe has had no effect on the current seating arrangements).
Children up to two years normally don't need a ticket and don't have their own seat but the first row is reserved for their mothers as there is enough space for a cot in front of the seats. With most airlines are special cots available and the back of the front galley (is that the right word when it comes to planes?) which forms the border to the passenger compartment has special safety belts attached to secure the cots during the flight. Another reason for the reservation of the first row is that on flights where smoking is allowed (not many left of those in Europe!) the smoke is worst in the back of the plane, thus children travel preferably in the front rows.

Here in Europe on domestic or short international flights (like Munich-Paris or London-Rome) there is no distinction between business and economy class anymore in the plane. Most airports have business lounges, though. Business class tickets are more expensive as they allow for a later check-in time and offer privileges like more flexibility when there is the need to change to a later connection or special services on short transit times (ecelerated baggage checks for handbaggage on switching planes, special transport from plane to plane etc.). But these are privileges a VIP passenger like Mary will have anyway. Probably she sat next to the nanny in the front row while Christian slept in front of them in his secured cot. At least that's what I hope because little kids can be extremely noisy when they feel the hurt in their ears when the plane leaves the cruising level and starts to approach its destination.... Been there, too with a toddler in a plane. One time, then we used the car to reach the Mediterranean for the next years till our boy was old enough to start enjoying the flight.

CROWN Princess Mary of Denmark has surprised students at a Melbourne primary school with a fleeting visit today.

Smoking is prohibited on all Australian Airlines (both domestic and international carriers). It was reported in the paper that Christian was playing in the aisle just near his mother, who was seated at the front of the craft (an all economy carrier) and aptly observed the flight through a window seat (as one would of course). Another reason as to why the Crown Princess would have been seated at the front is due to her entourage, consisting of four people in 'dark suits'.

I believe in Australia the elderly and disabled are normally given preference of front row seating, then mothers and children to follow with the rest (or so I have observed). A lady returning to Melbourne was herself seated four rows behind the Crown Princess' entourage and she had a child less than a year in age so its obvious the HRH was accorded a seating arrangement befitting the royal entourage and providing more privacy.

There is no dress requirements for business class, on any airline. I've seen people in tracksuits while being seated in business class.

I don't think it is required, i think it is just expected that business class customers dress nicely.

Qantas always puts mothers with kids right up the back of the plane and men in suits in the front section of economy.

Thumbs up

It is great to see Princess Mary, a young mum, being involved in the anti bullying schemes in Primary schools. As an education assistant in the primary school system it saddens me to see the amount of bullying that occurs especially from such a young age. My children made it through school without having to experience any type of bullying and I am thankful for that but I do see the effect it has on children and the problem has to be addressed.
Good one Princess Mary.

Thank you for the information.
It says in one of the articles:

Quote:
The tour was kept top secret operation, with the students only finding out about their special guest at the last moment.

Princess Mary was touring the school to learn about their 'Better Buddies' program, which is an anti-bullying scheme the Princess wants to take back to Denmark.
I can imagine the excitement of those school kids.
Thinking it would be an ordinary school day and suddenly there is a princess.

Mary seems to be very engaged with this important topic.

Not really, I've travelled many times in business class and on one occasion was ill so very scruffily dressed and there was nothing said/implied about what I was wearing.

I guess it just depends on who is letting you through the gates, it must be different with various airlines. They may not have said anything but there is still, in my opinion, a stigma attached to 'business class' as dressing nicely.

Well, as i said, its a stigma that i feel is out there in my opinion. I'm not saying its a rule, im saying that when at least I think of business class, i think of respectable clothing. I remember when I was at Bombay Airport, they wouldnt let this man on the plane because he was wearing thongs!

Im not saying is a set in stone rule, im saying its a stigma i feel is out there, an unwritten rule as such
