Why has no one considered the fact that MAYBE the flight attendant spoke to the woman as a means to avoid a conflict on a flight? Let's give flight attendants a break, can we? Due to all the changes, increased security and hightened awareness of potential dangerous situations, finding an extra pillow on a flight is the least of their concerns today. Let's look back at what might have happened had the employee suggested the complaining party "take it up" with the scantily dressed passenger. And let's assume someone sitting next to this woman had a problem with the way the complaining party spoke... so they in turn spoke up. Things can quickly heat up in an area like an aircraft and maybe, just MAYBE the flight attendant was trying to protect everyone on that flight from a dangerous situation and thought speaking to her was a quick and efficient means to controlling a situation. But no, we as a society have to make this about everyone's "RIGHTS". Flying is not a "right".. it is a service. If you do not like the service with which you have been provided.. sue, right? Come ON.
This media explosion over such a ridiculous situation will in no way change the way I travel. If SW is able to provide my family of 4 the cheapest flights, I will travel SW. If they cannot, I will look elsewhere. But I will not change my plans based solely on this one woman's complaint.
