You want an incentive? I found i was moving toward NFL linebacker weight, plus my beloved 2-year-old called me fat. I started Weight Watchers Jan. 3 and have already lost 20.8 lbs. That Southwest seat is feeling a lot more comfortable these days! Good luck with the fight -- and stick wth it!!

First, I want to commend Southwest for posting about this situation and letting all of us post our comments, good and bad. I don't know a lot of companies who would allow this kind of dialog on an official company blog.
Second, do I think the flight attendant went too far? Yes. I've seen people wearing much worse on flights. But that's the problem with rules about "approrpriate" dress. It can be way too subjective and interpreted hundreds of different ways, which causes problems with consistency of policy. I wouldn't have had a problem with the outfit, but maybe my mother would have.
Third, was her treatment horrible enough for me to say I'll never fly Southwest again? Certainly not. They get me from point A to point B pretty much on time and at a great fare, especially if I've snagged a DING! fare.
And I have to question what Miss Ebbert's untimate goal is. I mean, why did she feel the need to go on the Today Show -- with a lawyer? Is this really such an egregious error on Southwest's part that deserves legal action? I think not. She's had her 15 minutes of fame -- it's time to move on.
