Southwest Airlines Deems Woman's Outfit Too 'Inappropriate' To Fly

Posted: Updated:

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - A woman named Avital has contacted the blog Jezebel to share a tale of Southwest Airlines and its alleged dress code.

Avital, who asked that her last name be withheld, told the site that she boarded a 6 a.m. flight from Las Vegas to New York wearing a cotton dress, flannel shirt and scarf. The dress was a bit revealing, and she was told by the airline that she was dressed "inappropriately" -- and wouldn't be allowed to fly unless she buttoned up her flannel shirt to cover her cleavage. (Click over to Jezebel.com to see an image provided by the woman of her outfit.)

"I didn't want to let the representative's Big Feelings about my breasts change the way I intended to board my flight," she told the site, adding that she eventually boarded the plane without covering up. "And lo and behold, the plane didn't fall out of the sky ... my cleavage did not interfere with the plane's ability to function properly." click here to read more
