when I flew to Switzerland from Minneapolis (layover in Amsterdam), I wore a loose fitting skirt, shirt, light jacket and sandals. I always wear such clothing because I find them the most comfortable--and they're a little classier than pajamas-- which I would never wear in public anyway.
Something comfortable! Definitely comfortable! It sounds like a long flight! Maybe some baggier pants. And a fluffy if you will shirt. But don't forget shorts and a tee shirt! It's hot in MN! I can tell ya that!

The solution to a comfortable flight is loose clothing; no belts, nothing tight. The dressing code will also be determined by how good you have to look when you arrive. If you are simply going straight to the hotel, sweat pants should be fine; if you are going out of the town, consider carrying a change of clothes in your luggage, so that you can change in the restroom on arrival. On long flights feet tend to swell up, so flip flops, slippers, or loose tennis shoes are recommended.
Wear pants that are not too constricting as you will be seated for a long period of time. Blood circulation is already comprised by the lack of movement and can cause major vein problems. Remember, however, that the looser the clothing is, the chances for a pat down through airline security will rise.
Eww, don't be a tacky flyer and go in pjs! That's disgusting, wearing your bed clothes all freaking day out in public! People have no taste any more. Honestly, airport friendly clothes are your best bet. You want a comfy practical pair of pants, tennis shoes or slip on shoes (for tsa screening!), and layering works best! Throw on a comfy t shirt under a sweater or hoodie. If it's too warm, you can always use your top layer as a pillow.
