I've changed in and out of suits in airport restrooms, coffee shop restrooms, in the airplane restroom and in the front, passenger, seat of a 1970s Austin America (r.o.w.: Marina?) while someone else was driving. Focus. Change shirts, skirts, pants and dresses, and anything under them, in a stall. Stand on your comfy shoes, watch out for wet floors. Look ...

I have changed clothing a few couple of times in airport bathrooms; as other said, just stand in top of your sneakers/whatever footwear you are using as formal shoes tend to be more delicate. Another alternative is carrying your suit with you in a suit bag, and changing either in the toilets of the plane before landing if in domestic flights. In very long ...

Right after security checks (at least in the terminal I used) there were two changing rooms that are probably used for extra security checks. I asked the security staff if I could use it to get changed and their response was "sure, of course" so I went ahead and did. Indeed nobody even seemed to care. The changing room featured a chair, enough space and ...

If you happen to be at Sydney airport they have free showers. Plenty of space to get changed.

A few suggestions of various locations which might work depending on your situation and locale: Find a local gym or hotel or any other place that may have a changing room or private space, and ask if you may change in a private area at their facilities. Being polite and asking nicely will go a long way. For gyms you may have to pay for a day pass, but this ...

No need for a raincoat. Maybe a fold-able umbrella just to be sure. Am I on the right track ? It sounds like you could be setting yourself up for a miserable time, mitigated only by the fact that you'll have a bus to crawl back into, and plenty of tourist shops that will sell you a souvenir sweatshirt or jacket to remind you of the time you got cold. ...

JPatokal gives the answer for FRA, but in every restroom in every US airport there is a handicapped stall, where it is easy to change, and typically two clothing hooks to help you.

If you're willing to pay a bit to avoid hassle, Frankfurt Airport has 5 shower facilities scattered throughout its terminals that can be rented for 6 euros. The stalls aren't exactly luxurious, but they're fully separated, private and kept very clean, so you can change in comfort and take a shower if you feel like it. Most larger airports worldwide offer ...

Wearing certain colours of clothing is mostly more a fashion thing than a 'gay' thing. Some years some colours are just not in fashion and unless in fashion, white trousers are hardly worn due to the impractial nature of the colour for trousers. And more about white trousers: Those are standard uniform for UK rowing umpires, along with a black or dark blue ...

well as an Iranian, I should say that dress code is not that hard and strict that you might have heard except hijab for women which is only enforced by gov (that is not frowned upon by locals and girls are free about that at not crowded places), so you just wear whatever you like and don't worry that much. But if you like to blend in and not be the center ...

Iranian dress code for men are easier than women. Their dressing is the same as male dressing all around the world, but it is better not to wear short trousers. You can wear shorts in village ,beach and for sport activity.About T_shirt you are free to wear all kind and don’t think at all that colors are just black and white, you are free to choose any ...

It is illegal for civilians to wear camouflage clothing in Trinidad & Tobago, so if you're heading that way you should avoid wearing clothing (or carrying luggage) that features any camouflage patterns. When I flew there (from the UK) last year we were advised that we would not be allowed to board our flight if were so attired.

It's not a rule on paper that decides what's allowed, it's a human with their own history and beliefs who has that authority - if you can't board the flight it doesn't exactly help you that the airline apologizes to you afterwards because the decision to throw you off was clearly wrong. People get thrown off flights for the most ridiculous reasons, so my ...

Temperature in Boston, MA on 2016-05-25: 88F (31°C). Temperature in Seattle, WA on 2016-05-25: 66F (19°C). Sudden changes in temperature can make a person sick. The pilot was simply trying to protect this young woman's health by suggesting she cover up with appropriate clothing. Thus, to answer your question: Wear clothing suitable for the destination's ...

There are a wide variety of reasons why you may be denied boarding. I described some of the alleged security reasons here with references: Physical appearance and clothing, do they affect the passenger's chances of getting on the plane? In the example in question, the reason was not security (or a pretence at security), it was (allegedly) decency. From ...

It is easier to answer the question the way you worded it than the other way around. Finding a list of items that will get you kicked out of a plane probably depends on local customs and the pilot's mood! What will not have you kicked out of a plane is easier. For men, trousers without holes which cover entirely undergarments. A woman can wear pants too but ...

That depends on the cultural background of the country you are flying (from and to), and how relatively conservative or liberal the decision maker is. Generally, if it gets you in a good restaurant (in that country), you will have no problems on the airplane. Edit: I should have said 'medium level restaurant', I didn't mean 'upscale', just not 'cheapo' ...

I think you have covered all the typical reasons; I would also avoid T-Shirts with images of guns, explosives, etc. The link you shared with a woman with very short shorts could be seen by some as underwear. But back in the day, Southwest Airlines in the United States used to have their "Stewardesses" wear hot-pants.
