Why you shouldn't wear leggings on an airplane: an expert gives an answer that could save lives
Christine Negroni, an American writer who specializes in airplane travel, said that she would never wear leggings on an airplane. This is directly related to passenger safety in the event of a possible accident.
Although tight-fitting leggings may be comfortable, they won't save you from fire. The author of a book about the world's most mysterious air disasters told The Sun.
It's all about the artificial fibers that leggings are made of. They are too flammable, so the passenger becomes easy prey for the flames.
Christine Negroni said: "You may have to escape because of a fire in the cabin or there may be a fire on the ground when you leave the plane. Everyone wears yoga pants on airplanes nowadays, but I avoid all artificial fibers because they are likely to burn and stick to you in case of a fire."
The expert advised to give preference to clothes made of cotton or other natural materials. At the same time, she added that too wide clothes and open shoes can be a problem during evacuation.
Christine Negroni also had some advice about shoes. She advised passengers not to take off their shoes on the plane, as it can be dangerous to run barefoot in an emergency. The floor could be on fire, and there could be debris and other sharp objects on the ground.
To minimize the danger, it is advisable to wear a pair of shoes with sturdy and high soles.
