Given that some airlines even give you a complimentary pyjama when flying in first class I'd say that it would be perfectly legal for you to wear one on the plane regardless of which class you're flying in. Worst case scenario you'll get some looks from other passengers. Go ahead and fly comfortable.

In mainland Europe the rule is actually occupy the free rightmost lane unless when overtaking. In other words, the leftmost lane should be used exclusively for overtaking and not to cruise in. Indeed doing so is an offence and could result in a fine regardless of whether you are driving at the speed limit and nobody can legally overtake you. It follows ...

In general, no. Germany e.g. changed the law from the necessity to drive right at all times to allow staying in a lane if and only if there are vehicles on the right side for approximately every 20 seconds. If the road is empty, you are obliged to drive right. No exceptions. It depends on culture, but e.g. in Germany it is not your business to dictate ...

Unless you're concerned about your appearance prior to boarding the flight for some reason, I see no reason not to take @cgcampbell's advice.

Note you can NOT wear pyjamas with an open fly, on the plane. If there is any accidental exposure of your genitals, you'll either be promptly arrested, dealt with in some way by the staff, or some kid's father will beat you. Yes, it's true that in 1st class / etc, airlines hand out pyjama-like clothes for you to change in to during longer flights. The ...

As the other answers have already pointed out, the laws vary greatly from one country to another. Here in Spain you would be fined and I think that you will also lose points in your driver license. I would like to point out that here overtaking over the speed limit is not illegal. In fact, you can go faster than the speed limit when overtaking (by 20 km/h) ...

Here in Ireland you will receive a fine and licence points, if you drive in the overtaking lanes but are not overtaking, regardless of your speed. Overtaking lane is any lane, other than the left most lane.
