Woman claims Southwest wouldn't let her board plane because of her cleavage: report
NY Daily News ^ | 6/18/12 | Philip Caulfield

Posted on 06/18/2012 12:53:13 PM PDT by bornred

Southwest Airlines was forced to apologize to a woman who was told she couldn't board her flight because her cleavage was "inappropriate."

Jezebel reports that the woman, Avital — she only gave her first name — was boarding a 6 a.m. flight from Las Vegas to New York on June 5 when a ticket agent remarked that she couldn't fly unless she covered her breasts.

Clad in a comfy cotton dress, a baggy flannel shirt and bright scarf, Avital ignored the warning and marched aboard anyway.

...

Avital slammed the Southwest for "slut shaming," and said a man on her flight had on a provocative piece of clothing, but wasn't hassled.

Gross. Is basic dignity a thing of the past? She needs to cover up, hit the treadmill, and quit reading Jezebel.

I get the feeling everyone would have been better off
if she’d covered her FACE.

Reminds me of a story my Dad used to tell me about a woman with cleavage showing about to step into the swimming area of a lake.

A nine year old boy approaches her and says "Lady, if you're going to drown those puppies, I wouldn't mind having the one with the long brown nose!"

If you find boobies offensive, don't look. Easy enough when sardined in an aeroplane.

It's not like clockwork orange, and she was put on display.

I understand they wouldn’t let Michael Moore fly either.
Said it was “Contractor” cleveage or something.

I don't really find her dress that slutty or that big of a deal...she needs to lose some serious weight thought. The full length pic of her grosses me out more than the cleavage.

Should have seen the chinese B%&Tch at the terminal in Hong Kong announcing my flight to Saigon.

She announced 1st class to board now and on the mic she told one couple flying economy that if they had studied English they would be able to undertand that their ticket is for economy and ONLY first class are boarding at this time. The couple was British. LOL

Standard fallback when your position doesn't have a leg to stand on...claim sexism.

BTW, my understanding is that airlines reserve the right (and have always had that right) to deny bording to anyone for whatever reason they deem appropriate.

Indeed and if the picture is accurate, Southwest was way out of line.

You have to ask? Decency and modesty in dress are definately passe. More's the pity.

BTW...looks to me like the rope's there to keep them from sagging to her belly button.

Please. People wear sweatpants, pajama bottoms, tank tops, shorts, flip flops, etc., etc. on airplanes these days. This top isn't all that bad at all, as far as teats are concerned.

I was boarding a SW flight this morning and there was an attractive, heavily endowed woman with an extremely short dress that makes the woman on this thread look very covered up.

Sitting down in the waiting area required her I-pad folder cover being lapped over her knees to prevent a very excited waiting area.

The range of dress or undress for women on air flights runs to both ends of the extreme. Flying all the time I run across some very comical stuff. Evening gowns, cocktail dresses, pajamas (or what passes in some homes for such) to hooker wear. Shorts that are shorter than some swimwear, bare midriffs, muffin tops, feathered hair, to burquas.
