I remember riding the walking through Le Pub as the train was pulling into nyp. Somebody was playing “Who’s Crying Now?
While I like to be as comfortable as I can get away with, dressing up certainly can make things run smoother. The only times I've been upgraded on an airplane were times that I was traveling while dressed up.
Dressing to impress can't hurt...
The present VIA Rail "Canadian" meal service is pretty close to that video, plus very friendly, welcoming, and with a sense of pride running thru all levels of service on that train. Ride it if you haven't!

If you travel to other industrialized democracies you'll eventually notice that many Americans dress like slobs by comparison, including yours truly. That being said, why would anyone feel the need to dress up smartly for a visit to a dining car that resembles a 1980's fast food booth?
Dressing extra nice can move you up all the way up from #10 to #9 on the premium cabin priority list.

Yep. They disappeared pretty fast, though.
The Superliner II Sightseers never did have them, though.
I'm curious how the conversation would go if I was sitting across the dinning table from someone wearing a black Ostrich feather hat shaped like a question mark. One of the many examples of ridiculous taste worn back in the day.
I'm good with the not overdressed look I've noticed from most diners these days.
Wear what you brung, no tank tops please.
I was laughing about the very same thing. Those hats are beyond classic-Hell, I'd wear one
The film was a promotional thing. The fact that only the ladies wearing the hats were filmed close up highlights them as costumed film extras, rather than everyday passengers.
I could always wear my fluffy hat to the table
I think that would be a great way to get the whole place to yourself.
