Thread: Airport Bars

  1. #201
    There are a bunch of great places (I have to assume on the drinking front) away from the terrible regional gates where the 5 guys is. Walk up and over the bridge. Man I do hate that airport.

    I was reminded of this thread when I got a rare first class upgrade DFW-Miami yesterday.

    The guy sitting across the aisle from me had the audacity to wear shorts. Like some kind of $#@!ing commoner. I was appalled.

    However, they were not cargo shorts, so I wasn't sure if I could rightfully demand that the flight attendant throw him off the plane.

    Ruling?

    Nothing epitomizes classic American style like "business casual"

    If there were french-cuffed shorts, he was homogay and wanted to join the mile high club with you. It's a tough call in first class otherwise...

    Since I only fly First Class or better, and have well over 1 million miles, I believe I can speak to this dress code issue.

    I try to hold myself to a high standard: Jeans, some sort of sneakers, death metal shirt (preferably w/ at least 2 skulls) and tatted out arms for all the $#@!ing douchebags in first to stare at and think "that guy shouldn't be up here with us."

    It is a funny double standard. I identify with the proletariat whilst avoiding steerage at all costs. I hate everyone in first class for being white collar $#@!ing right-wing white guy douchebags whilst basically being everything they are (except the right wing part). But $#@! them anyway.

    Just got back from NYC where 2 out of my 4 flights were freeeeeezing. I took one trip to Richmond, VA and was sitting in row 1 of an Embraer . It was so cold I had to wear a wool topcoat in my seat. Besides, I can't imagine wearing shorts, particularly when two of my last flights I had to sit next to people who were spilling over into my seat.

    I will say, there is something about flying in a suit. You know you're on the way to make thing happen. You go on with your cargo shorts... I'm taking a different approach...

    I stand by this philosophy. Not so much because of getting sick on a plane, it's simply a statement about the state of men in this nation. You dress for the chick you're gonna $#@! when you touch down in Miami, not the chick you made the mistake of $#@!ing at the Columbus Ramada Inn before takeoff.
    So basically you're saying that you dress for the chick you're going to cheat on your wife with?

    The only game that works better on chicks than pretending you are an important businessman is pretending you're a rockstar.

    that's true, but with myspace now, it's pretty easy to find out your band doesn't really exist. But your double-secret private equity hedge fund that only invests in diamonds and high-end shoes...now that's a story to roll with.

    I got upgraded to first class once on an overbooked flight once. I almost wasn't allowed to board, but some guy opted out of his first class seat and BAM instant first-class amenities for me. I'm sure all the TheCrusiers were horrified at my shorts and middle-class demeanor.

    I wear cargos and flip flops and slip out of said flip flops as soon as I can.

    By the time she gets to check on myspace, you've already kicked her out of your hotel room and erased her number from your phone. And if you're doing it right, you set up the band page first.

    Well played sir, well played.


    And to be clear, I don't care who sits in first class. I consider first class to be a tragic waste of money. we did it our honeymoon and haven't done it since. But back in coach, where laypeople like me sit, I take zero offense in any man in shorts. I just think, this is your chance to be somebody different than yourself, why not take a chance? I've acquired clients by talking with the person next to me and looking professional. I'm uncomfortable as hell on planes, so wearing pants doesn't add much more misery than I'm already in. I've also found that I'm much more attractive to the opposite sex in airports/planes because I dress accordingly and wield my $#@! like I own the plane.

    Most people in first class don't pay for first class. We just fly a lot and get upgraded.

    I wear cargos when I travel, because American's flights are hot as $#@!.

    I also fly first class frequently and wear shorts, plus i'm Black so people think i'm a pro athlete or something. It reminds me of the Michael Jordan Hanes T-shirt commericial, that's how dudes treat me.

    On the other hand, never had a hot bitch sit next to me(i'm married, it doesn't matter) but $#@!.

    Carry on.

    Well, you must be very fabulous. I am self-employed so there is nobody to foot the bill for my travel but me. And I fly frequently but not enough to amass huge rewards. And when I do, I give them to my mom so she can attend the funerals of her second cousins. every once in a great while, when there is that notice at check-in kiosk that I can buy a first-class upgrade for $50, I may take it if my leg is long enough (2+ hours). Whatever the class is though, when I fly, I treat it like a getaway. I have never cheated on my wife and will never, but why not use this as a chance to reinvent yourself. I have flown several hours before speaking in nothing but my Castilan Spanish accent. It's not even fair, it's like fishing with dynamite.

    FML. I already have 14 legs scheduled through the end of September. I usually fly mornings, Monday and Friday, to minimize delays and time away from home. Also, because I can't control myself from drinking as much as possible at airports and on airplanes.

    Airport bar: I'll take a beer and a Beam on the rocks on the side. Why yes, I would like to make that a double for $2 more. I will also drink both as fast as I can to order another before boarding. I will then proceed to chug at least half of a beer as they are calling my name to board.

    Plane: If I'm first class, it's a drink before takeoff, and red wine in flight. Red wine because the the sky waitress comes around to fill it up all the time. Coach? "Would you like a drink?" "Yes, two Jack Daniels, a cup of ice, and a Diet Coke." Next time she comes around? "A cup of ice and two Jack Daniels.". $28 later, and it's all fun times.

    The first week in Sept, I'm flying out on Labor day at 6pm. Flying home Friday at 3pm. It's on. I will be drinking hard from around noon at some to be determined MSP bar.

Whatever the class is though, when I fly, I treat it like a getaway. I have never cheated on my wife and will never, but why not use this as a chance to reinvent yourself. I have flown several hours before speaking in nothing but my Castilan Spanish accent. It's not even fair, it's like fishing with dynamite.
    You sound poor, I'm surprised you can even afford to dress business casual. But judging by your posts, your TJ Max sports jacket and imagination help you escape from reality and into a place where it is 1958 and chicks dig you and it is socially acceptable for semi well dressed men to be adulterers like your dad.

    But thanks for taking this fun thread and turning it into a $#@!ing fashion thread.

    The great thing about travelling by plane is that you can drink at the bar before you travel, and drink on the plane AS you travel.

    A few years ago, when I had a buttload of free SWA tickets and drink coupons, I ended up on a flight from Houston to Austin with Stanley Johannsen -- had been my wills and estates prof in law school, taught at some CLE's I'd attended, and we'd actually become social acquaintances through his daughter (good friends with my wife's cousin here in town, we'd end up drinking at parties together). We sat together, and I said lemme buy you a drink. He said "only if I can buy you one." So, we got a couple of beers. And a couple more. . . . and on the short flight from Houston to Austin, we each drank 5 beers. That Swedish sumbitch can put 'em away, and I wasn't gonna fall behind.

    I had to hang out at the Austin airport and eat a sandwich before I was okay to drive home.

    Airlines should start selling terminal passes. Not just for us $#@!s who wanna drink and pretend we are important. As a kid, my mom used to take me to Hobby to look at planes taking off and parking even when we weren't going anywhere. I'm sure kids today would like that too. They have taken all the joy and wonder out of flying.

    On the bright side, it's noon on a weekday and you've been throwing Yuengling for a couple of hours.

    just go up to the fence and park and hang out... oh, and make sure to have a video camera handy and wear a towel around your head to protect you from the heat and noise..

    Props to that.

    I'm a fan of 1st class- sometimes wearing shorts from IAH -> CDG... big fan of the wine selection on that flight- well, moreso the quantity they allow me. I love waking up to breakfast in 1st class.

    F the haters who shun my shorts- I'm not on the flight to impress you.

    I always wear jeans or slacks when upgraded to first. It's not as awkward when I ask the AA flight attendant to warm my nuts

    Plus, it's a lot easier to do blow in the first class lavatory.

    Just got the upgrade notice from Continental for my flight back to IAH tomorrow afternoon. I am gonna try to set the bloody mary record for a 2 hour flight, then go nap in the interfaith chapel for an hour or so before driving home.

    Excellent. I'm sitting at the bar with the TX Deer Association in town and drunk chicks from Dallas. The guy just offered to "measure their racks". He pulled out a tape measure. He also has his money in his pocket in the bank envelope.
