United Airlines Prohibited Three Passengers with Leggings

Imagine that you are about to embark on an aircraft and the company’s employees they stop you from the entrance because that morning you’ve decided to get a t-shirt with raglan sleeves and according to the rules of the company you will not dress appropriately for travel. It would seem you crazy, right?

As the same has happened to three clients (among them a less than 10 years) of United Airlines, which they are almost on Earth because they had put some leggings, something that, according to the company, goes against their dress codes.

While it is true that many times we recommend what to you to make a trip by plane more bearable there are standards closed about what is right and what is wrong in these cases. But in the case of the company United Airlines line is very clear: You can’t take leggings in their planes and other sportswear lingeire.

Last Sunday Shannon Watts, an indignant passenger, shared a message on Twitter where told that she was not allowed to a ten-year-old girl and two girls the plane because they were not properly dressed for travel. According to the company, of course. The company responded quickly on Twitter explaining that the aforementioned persons were pass ryders (are travelers with special discounts, usually employees or family thereof) and that the company had a special for these cases dress code.

“Is an employee of the flight 215 at 7:55 Says that she does not make the rules, I just follow them. I guess that @united does not leave women to carry sportswear?”

Far were those times that make a journey by plane was a really special event and people dressed for the occasion. Today Premium the comfort of the traveler and whenever not jump the fundamental rules of decorum or hygiene, ban wearing clothes like leggings in cabin seems a thing of the past a long time ago. Something which, as expected, has raised a huge cloud of dust in social networks and even celebrities like Patricia Arquette, actress and writer Sarah Silverman or Christine Teigen have come to defend the right to get some Leggings or whatever you want to catch a plane. And especially to ask that There is a police of decorum at the entrance of the fingers.

I have flown united before literally with no pants on. Just to top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf.

“I’ve traveled in Union literally no panties.” Only a top as a dress. The next time only I will wear jeans and a scarf.”

@united Why aren ‘ t you allowing girls to wear leggings on flights? Who is your gate agent policing girls clothing?

— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) March 26, 2017

“Why not let the girls go with leggings to your flight? What is your dress policy for boarding for girls?”

Understandable. It ‘ of just that saying to dad in cargo shorts is more appropriate than 10 or girl in leggings is weird maybe rethink https://t.co/U1xzH5P6Ar

— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) March 27, 2017

“Understandably. Say that a parent with cargo pants is more appropriate than a 10 year old leggings girl is rare. Think again.”

@shannonrwatts @baddestmamajama @united If leggings aren ‘ t allowed on flights I don ‘ t want to fly

— Lia Marie (@LiaBoBia) March 26, 2017

“If they do not allow leggings on the flights I don’t fly.”

Of course, the topic seems so surreal, both as if they forbid us to get on the plane with Texan boots or necks Mao while yes they let passengers with perfumes with too much personality, sandwiches whose smell of chorizo cantimpalo expands throughout the cabin or use deodorant. And clear, the topic has also given for quite a few laughs on Twitter:

.@united i have flown numerous times while displaying an egregious mooseknuckle. What ‘ s male over 10 have to do to get noticed?

— Andy Richter (@AndyRichter) March 26, 2017

“@united I have traveled numerous times ticking package in an atrocious manner. Would have to do more than 10-year-old man to make you case?”

But in the end we cannot forget that we are talking about that two young girls and a little girl almost run out of travel because they wore a garment that United Airlines was not considered appropriate. And in addition, the company announced that This policy anti-leggings will apply to any passenger who orders a trip with the company (according to the regulations, clear).
