Posted on 10/19/2012 5:03:48 PM PDT by EveningStar
When traveling in the corporate jet, the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch makes it clear that he has stringent requirements for his luxury travel.
Those needs span 47 pages in a remarkable Aircraft Standards manual that covers everything from the underwear male cabin staffers must wear (boxer briefs) to the seating plan for the dogs of A&F chief Michael Jeffries, 68, and his boyfriend Matthew Smith, 49.

The Guardian: Abercrombie & Fitch boss's jet rules: wear flip-flops and play Phil Collins: Stewards must conform to 'aircraft standards' manual, according to extraordinary claims made by former pilot in lawsuit
This must be one of those 1% ers, flying around in corporate jets, that Barry was talking about. Strange, since the guy’s a homo and probably a Barry donor.
His private jet, his rules. Gay or not, he is the one paying the bills.
Don’t like it, don’t work there.
Somehow, being anal retentive goes well with his sexual preference.
A&F is a public company; its stockholders pay the bills.
Sounds boring to me. Flip-flops can be dangerous, particularly if the aircraft is in rough air.
Odd that he can’t seem to buy a good plastic surgeon at that income.
This is NOT a nonsmoking flight.
Smoking is allowed in the cabin and lavatories after takeoff.
Does he check the underwear?
Imagine being stuck in an airplane for 5 hours with that fairy.
I'd have more musical variety and "Bond Girls" for cabin staff.
I could not stop reading. I am so ashamed.
Wearing boxers or briefs?
Those magazine inserts are annoying, I’m with him on that ;-)
So, having skimmed over this document, is anyone else having unwanted images of “Manual for Sex” floating through their brain?
That is some messed up plastic surgery.
Agreed. But always interesting to find out how liberal elites demand to be treated and how the treat others. I bet this guy was big on redistribution of wealth and social justice. But just not his wealth or any justice that would cost him any inconvenience.

In the olden days when flight attendants were all obviously females we had to learn to walk gracefully up and down the aisle in very high heels and shorter very tight skirt even when flying through a lot of turbulence. Some of us also learned, however, that there is no way to exit via the emergency chute in this type of attire though.
If you absolutely had to, I would imagine you would accept the show that you would be giving to those at the bottom of the chute.
lol....Don’t be ashamed....every once in a while we need a good laugh.
Damn, you’d think he could afford to go to a better plastic surgeon.
You don’t really fly in turbulence on private. There is more leeway to fly over it, under it and around it.
I only had turbulence once and that was coming into to Fagstaff, AZ. You ride the crest of the mountain as you come in and there’s not muchyyou’re gonna do about it.
How about some pictures of you from the olden days; just for research purposes.
the “Aircraft Standards” was shot down in flames by the “his boyfriend” bit.
Obviously not men’s wear.
When I see things like this picture I know there are no anti-aging procedures that actually work.
You forgot the best Bond Girl!
Boxers for his male cabin staff. They probably have to wear the backwards too.
Is that Nancy Pelosi’s sister?
You are just tooooo funny. Better to just wonder than to know and be disappointed!
I flew for TWA and there were no old or ugly flight attendants. We weighed in before every flight. Had a 2 lb. leeway and then you were grounded. But we did have a lot of fun. Took 8 hours and 2 stops from KC to LAX so you got to know passengers pretty well.
Gawd, how sickening and gross.
That these people run America and American companies tell me how far past its peak the country is.
I found the hypersexualization of the A&F clothing line distrubing and queer. They targeted children. Now it’s all clear.
Islam and homosexuality, America’s Charybdis and Scylla.
Plastic surgeon? This guy looks like he went to an apprentice taxidermist...
How about that! I’m guilty of stereotyping...seriously, that’s a surprise.
