What do you mean by that? Which one is the less important one?

Birkas Hamazon is D'oraisa. It's equal to (or some would argue greater than) davening Shacharis. If you are makpid to wear a hat during davening, you should most certainly be makpid to wear it during Benching.

According to R' Moshe Feinstein one need not wash mayim acharonim unless his hands are dirty because the other reason of a dangerous salt does not exist nowadays

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

R' Moshe didn't hold one thing and tell everyone to do something else it makes no sense

R' moshe held certain things but felt they should not be publicized as psak. I know one instance of this 2nd hand.

There's a specific inyan to wear a hat during davening because tfilah is is compared to standing in front of a king - which is not the case with bentcing. See M"B

It has nothing to do with being d'oraisa or not.

Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, 44:6

לא יברך מעומד, ולא מהלך, אלא מיושב, ואפילו היה הולך בתוך ביתו כשאכל, או שהיה עומד או מסיב, כשצריך לברך צריך לישב, כדי לכוין דעתו ביותר, וגם לא יהא מיסב שהוא דרך גאוה, אלא ישב וילבש מלבוש העליון. וגם יניח הכובע בראשו שיהא מורא שמים עליו. ויעורר הכונה ויברך באימה וביראה, ולא יעשה שום דבר בשעה שהוא

Not saying there's no inyan at all. It's just not the same as davening.

What I learned on the forum in the past 24 hours: Oreos are pas Yisroel, you can eat them with real fleishigs, you don't need mayim acharonim because there are no poisonous snake on an airplane, and you can bentsch without a hat and jacket even if you wouldn't daven that way.

Do you have a source for this?

AFAIK, bentching is equal to or greater than davening, for all intents and purposes.

Please cite a specific source that states that wearing a hat is more important during davening than during bentching.

So just the hat then, no jacket?

In all seriousness, I was by one of my rebbeim for a meal on Sukkos and it was very hot. By bentching he put on his hat but not his jacket, and mentioned that the hat is more important than the jacket. I don't remember the explanation, or if he gave one.

Regarding your Ma'aseh, I have seen people putting on a hat but no jacket but never found out a reason...
