Southwest Airlines Thinks Your Outfit Is Inappropriate

According to the Union-Tribune, Southwest airlines objected to an outfit worn by a 23 year-old Hooters waitress.

Southwest went so far as to ask the woman the leave the airplane. So what was she wearing?

A “white denim miniskirt, high-heel sandals, and a turquoise summer sweater over a tank top over a bra.”

My god! Alert the TSA and the local police! We can see leg!

She had a doctor’s appointment that afternoon in Tucson, where temperatures had topped 106 all week. She arrived at Lindbergh Field wearing a white denim miniskirt, high-heel sandals, and a turquoise summer sweater over a tank top over a bra.

After the plane filled, and the flight attendants began their safety spiel, Ebbert was asked to step off the plane by a customer service supervisor, identified by the airline only as “Keith.”

They walked out onto the jet bridge, where Keith told Ebbert her clothing was inappropriate and asked her to change. She explained she was flying to Tucson for only a few hours and had brought no luggage.
“I asked him what part of my outfit was offensive,” she said. “The shirt? The skirt? And he said, ‘The whole thing.’ ”

Keith asked her to go home, change and take a later flight. She refused, citing her appointment. The plane was ready to leave, so Keith relented. He had her pull up her tank top a bit, pull down her skirt a bit, and return to her seat.

Ebbert says several flight attendants overheard the conversation and, after an embarrassing walk down the aisle, she took her seat and spread a blanket over her lap

We really can’t see anything obscene about this girl’s outfit (pictured above). Maybe we’re missing something, but this is America and if a girl wants to board an airplane wearing a mini skirt, a bikini top and a football helmet, she should be able to. Who cares?

Southwest declined to comment on the story, but did say that they didn’t have a dress code and that one could wear a bikini top if one wanted, so we’re assuming that “Keith” went rogue.
