We doubt Karl Lagerfeld has flown commercial anytime in the last few decades — or that he finds airport fashion particularly chic, as a man who's publicly announced his hatred of sweatpants — but he took his guests to the "Chanel Airlines" terminal (complete with a ticketing booth and rows of attached chairs at the gate) for the French label's spring 2016 show in Paris Tuesday morning. Lagerfeld has run with an aviation theme before — specifically for his cruise 2008 show which featured branded jumbo jets and took place at a hangar Santa Monica, and his spring 2012 couture show, which was staged inside a fancy, makeshift plane.

This time, the Chanel girls were clearly off to a myriad of destinations: Some were decked out in full tweed dresses and separates ideal for a business trip; some donned the Chanel version of sweats, which were essentially colorful knits and loose silk pieces in clashing patterns; some wore a vivid floral motif that looked ideal for a warm-weather getaway; plenty donned updated, modern denim in interesting silhouettes, while others — in true Chanel fashion — opted for the most wild, heavily adorned gowns they could find. Although, in the real world, we aren't sure the latter would make it through the security checkpoint without alarm.

Because this was a Chanel show, after all, Lagerfeld had only the most handsome baggage handlers, like Baptiste Giabiconi and Brad Kroening. Now this is an airline we'd like to fly, stat.
