WOW! I don't know why the place of employment for this young woman in being thrown around so much. What did that have to do with the incident? If Southwest wants to have a dresscode policy, fine, whatever, but is should be stated for people to look at in advance. I know a lot of people are saying shame on her for wearing in the first place, she just wanted attention, etc. There was ample time while she checked in, went through security, then sat in the terminal for an employee to approach her and suggest she may need to change or wrap in a blanket ahead of time. No one did. That suggests that this was not a policy of Southwests, or that it is arbitrarily decided. If she was checking in with that outfit on and they let her through security, she should be allowed through. By the time the plane was boarding, how long, exactly, had she been in view of SW employees? Personally, I feel they have no standing to dictate what people wear, as long as they're covered by the legal definition. That aside, they handled this poorly. For all you people who are saying she deserved to be shamed and humiliated for wearing such an outfit in the first place - is that what your Christian spirit is supposed to enforce? What about turning the other cheek - literally - look away from it if you're offended and just know that you would not dress like that yourself or allow your children to do so either. Shame on you, SW, for creating such an embarassing situation for both yourself and this girl!
