Her parents apparently are throwbacks to the 50s and 60s when air travel was something actually special. "Jet set" and all that.
My grandparents told me similar stories about getting really dressed up for flying. I even heard Joan Rivers complaining about how people dress sloppy in first class.

I have a great-aunt who regularly complains that no one dresses up to eat in hotels anymore (i.e., wears white gloves and hats).
My in-laws get dressed up to go to DOCTOR VISITS.
And my MIL still irons pleats into their jeans, so I guess they would dress up for a plane ride.

i always wear dresspants and a button up shirt when i am flying, its the only way you might get bumped to first or business!
