I generally fly SW when ever I can. I am not sure I will any longer. It's not that I agree with the dress styles of today or lack of common sense by individuals about their attire. I am also very glad that my children are all grown and I do not have to fight those 'appropriate dress' battles any longer. Dressing for 'respect' for oneself is a value taught or learned the hard way-by their peers.
What question that does come to mind is why SW Airlines feels that they have been sanctioned to be the fashion police of the skies. Yes, they can set their own standards for their business.

OWNERSHIP of the airlines does come to mind. Let's say that your owners were Muslims and wanted all women to be covered from head to toe. I can see where you may take action to cover these women up with a blanket. Who exactly does own SW? Should you now be called South Western Arab Airlines?
