That is truly staggering.
To have every bit of fabric on the pilot's seat rigorously tested and certified to FAR 25-853, then clothe the pilot in highly combustible uniform (which, particularly trousers, would not be easy to abandon in a hurry) is just crazy.
As SLF, I always dress in cotton or wool for air travel, and tell all my family likewise.
