Plane expert warns you should never wear leggings on a flight

Plane expert warns you should never wear leggings on a flight

The plane expert has warned holiday-goers to not wear leggings due to safety reasons.

The airport outfit is a tricky one - you want to be comfortable while also wearing suitable clothing for the country you are leaving and the the one you are entering.

Many decide to opt for leggings as a comfortable option, but according to an expert, you really shouldn't be doing it all because of safety reasons.

Although a pair of comfy leggings is the go-to choice for many travellers when flying, aviation expert Christine Negroni advises against it, just in case there's an emergency onboard the flight.

She told The Sun: "You might have to escape through a cabin fire or there could be a separate fire on the ground once you leave the aircraft.

"Everyone is wearing yoga pants on planes now, but I avoid all artificial fibres because they are more likely to burn and stick to you if there is a fire.

"I’d advise wearing cotton clothes or anything made of natural fibres."

According to Christine, ditching your shoes on a flight isn't a good idea either, especially during take off and landing. It's also important to choose sensible shoes, and no heels.

The expert has warned against wearing leggings on a plane.

"If you escape an aircraft, the floor could be very hot or cold, it might be covered in oil or on fire, or in a cornfield – you won’t want to be barefoot," she said.

"Mainly err on the side of caution. Pick sneakers over high heels, pick natural fibres over synthetic, and take tight-fitting clothes over loose-fitting."

In other travel news, we recently told you about one woman's genius iPhone travel hack, which she shared on TikTok.

In the clip, @live_thedash explains a mega easy way for family and friends to track your flight when you jet off on holiday.

All you need to do is send the airline and flight number in an iMessage, for example, 'Ryanair FR553' and whoever you send it to will notice a box pop up on the message window.

Christine says to be wary of any emergency happening while you are onboard.

There are two options to choose from, 'preview flight' or 'copy code', but if the recipient selects the 'preview flight' option, they can then track your flight in real time.

There's even information on departure time, arrival time and flight duration, so they know exactly what's happening while you're up in the sky.

And other TikTokers were pretty blown away by the tip, with people calling it 'amazing' while one said: "Just found out about this a day ago and this is actually fire."

We're definitely giving this a go on our next flight.
