When it comes to matters of personal appearance, the friendly skies aren’t so friendly. Dry skin from stale plane air is as inevitable as a 45-minute TSA line. Jet lag gives rise to under-eye bags too large to store in an overhead compartment. And the unflattering cabin lighting could bruise even the healthiest ego. Perhaps the greatest injustice to befall those who dare to venture so far above sea level is hair static.
