Air travel changes with technology, social situations and politics. Since a generation ago there have been many changes.
The world is still the same size, but technology has compensated to changing time zones in a few ways. Just having a better flight condition, so we don’t get dehydrated, so we might get some sleep, makes all the difference when we arrive. Carbon fibre components in aircraft help this situation considerably.
In the 1980s it cost the average person three weeks wages to fly to the USE or UK. Now it is about one week’s wage.
It is much more convenient to book with the internet than it ever was to use a travel agent or book over the phone. This reduces the cost as we are not paying for an individual to serve us. Sydney airport transfers are easily made on the internet.
Book an airport shuttle Sydney wide on the net, and save time and money.
Much more strict that a generation ago. Who would have thought there would ever be a restriction on bringing liquids on board?
At the same time the security checks are actually quicker than before. And baggage weight allowances have increased.
In the 1990s everybody in the plane watch the same film(s). Now it is common for each seat to have its own screen and a wide choice of films. It is also becoming increasingly common to use Wi-Fi on a plane.
Politics of the Destination
US President Trump has tried to set limitations on travel from some countries. This was hardly an issue in the 1990s. Though most of these proposed restrictions have not been upheld.
Long ago people dressed up when they took a plane trip. After plane travel became commonplace they started to dress for comfort, and in anticipation for the weather at their destination. We have tended to become neatly casual when dressing for aircraft, and do not have high expectations of others.
In early 2017 a pair of teenagers were turned away from a flight because of inappropriate attire. Many people were surprised by this, and surprised that airlines still had dress regulations. What is underreported is that the two teenagers were flying on an employee pass, so were considered to be representatives of the airline; restrictions are more severe and more likely to be reinforced in these situations.
Most airlines do have dress codes, but they are fairly tolerant when it comes to reinforcing them. As long as passengers are reasonably attired there is nothing said.
Dress for you destination.
There are more flight and airlines than ever before, yet accidents are becoming even less common.
A Sydney Airport Shuttle is always a good way to start or return from a trip, no matter your attire or expectations. Let your vacation or business trip start the moment you leave your home.
