American Airlines announced Wednesday that, effective immediately, it is eliminating a “prescribed” dress code for employees and their dependents traveling as non-revenue passengers.

The change still requires employees to be dressed neatly. Earlier iterations of the airline’s dress code required a collared shirt and slacks in premium cabins although that was subsequently eliminated.

“As long as your clothing is neat and clean and doesn’t offend or distract, you’re good to fly in any class (including premium cabins),” the airline said in a letter to employees.

American, the world’s largest carrier, says that the new rules will allow gate agents to focus on the needs of revenue passengers and get flights out on time.
