The lady who tried to wear a bra type/bikini top with her chest hanging out on a flight

New Arrival

I wish Southwest had told that complaining woman who DELAYED the entire flight due to her wearing a bra/swimsuit looking top (with her chest hanging out) "If you want to dress inappropriately, you don’t have to fly on our planes…we have a right to have a dress code, just like restaurants have the right to refuse service to anyone dressed inappropriately."  I'm not against women's bodies--I don't want to sit next to a man wearing a SPEEDO instead of pants, either, but now someone will probably try it!  By apologizing & giving her a free flight, you're inviting other passengers to try to push the boundaries even further...you should have stood up for having a dress code. People should learn that stripper attire (both male & female) is distracting/inappropriate on a plane with families on board!

Agreed! And the woman was still able to fly and had her ticket refunded and was apologize to by Southwest but still says that's not enough.

I don't think Southwest actually has a dress code for passengers, do they? Kind of an interesting concept. Why did Southwest delay the flight because of what one woman was wearing, and why was she given a free flight?

I understand your thoughts that maybe there might be some parameters based on children flying.  But we all don't come from the same social norm.   My thoughts are, WHY wasn't this attended to at the boarding pass area?

Why wasn't this woman stopped at the boarding gate?   Everyone is afraid of being sued for offending someone.  The same with SW.
