Man who flies in women's lingerie --and little else-- says he wants to make travel fun
Sun-Sentinel ^ | June 24, 2011 | Daniel Chang

Posted on 06/24/2011 9:52:44 PM PDT by TheDingoAteMyBaby

His name is Howard, and he likes to fly while dressed in women's lingerie.

That's about all that is known of the mystery U.S. Airways passenger catapulted to international prominence this week via Internet blogs after he was photographed at Concourse E, Gate 9 of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on June 9 while waiting to board a flight to Phoenix.

Howard's distinguishing characteristics: He smiles with his mouth closed, and he was dressed in nothing more than blue women's lingerie, black stockings, high-heeled shoes and a tasteful, transparent white sweater. He accessorized with a black choker, and a wristwatch.

Greg Meyer, an airport spokesman, said there is no dress code that would prevent Howard or anyone else from flying in lingerie, as long as it does not compromise the safety of the flight or fellow passengers.

"There's not a lot we can say or do,'' Meyer said. "It's a very diverse community, and people come in all sorts of garb.''

The photograph of Howard, taken by a fellow passenger who said others had complained to the crew about him, sparked a mild controversy because just a few days later the same airline had another passenger removed from a flight for refusing the pilot's orders to pull up his sagging pants.

That passenger, 20-year-old Dashon Marman, was booked on suspicion of trespassing, battery and resisting arrest. He is a football player at the University of New Mexico.

I hear that he isn’t a tease either.

Saw this guy in the Phoenix airport in April. He was dressed in a black leather bra, black leather hotpants and over the knee black leather boots. It was frightening. All I could think was how much attention he must need. Everyone was staring. Very sad.

If he "wants to make travel fun," he should unfasten his seat belt for the duration of the flight and live dangerously. ;-)

Now, I hate looking at young men’s underwear, but I’d rather sit next to the football guy than the women’s lingerie guy. At least the football player is a man, I’m not sure what the blue bra and panties guy is, but that ain’t a man, baby. That’s a freak.

Compared to that, I would rather see a passenger in saggy pants.

“His name is Howard, and he likes to fly while dressed in women’s lingerie.”

Wasn’t this an Ed Wood movie?

Does Dan Chang, the reporter, sound a little obsessed?

Lets all celebrate mental illness.

He’s just the president of the Weiner fan club. Great thing for the kiddies to see.

In a saner time he would be herded off to a rubber room or having his head candled at a local sanitarium.

The passengers should all refuse to board the plane if the perv is allowed to fly like that.

An airline would be wise to have ten good looking gals on every flight as passengers dressed in lingerie.

Then the liberals would find issues with this.

Judging by old TV shows like Leave it to Beaver, people dressed up inside their homes too.

So, what if a woman showed up to fly in her underwear? This is ludicrous. He should not have been allowed on the plane. He wouldn’t be allowed in a restaurant, would he? or would he....I wouldn’t want to be in THAT restaurant!

Seinfeld had an episode where he was on a train and found himself in conversation with a large, corpulent man, who he pledged to get naked with if the Mets win the penent. Reminds me of this.

On the other hand, this guy is the one person on the aircraft you can be certain isn’t hiding a weapon or smuggling a bomb on board. Anything can be hidden under the modest all-covering burka. With this outfit, not so much.

Is this the guy that sent that Southwest Airlines pilot over the edge?

You know-the guy who was ranting about gays, grannies and grandes?

No wonder.

There's your problem right there, Ace.

You got it.

Goverment, with all its moralistic "discrimination" laws and regulations, probably makes enforcing any kind of dress code at a public transportation hub so risky that all they can really do is throw up their hands. They'd constantly be fending off race or sexual orientation discrimination charges. Government punishes harshly for discrimination. Maybe the airlines would like to be more moral and make it impossible for a guy like this to inflict himself on their paying public, but the government gets in the way.

Just one small illustration of how less government would lead to a more moral society.

So the kid showing his underwear with the saggy PJ pants would have been allowed on the flight if he had on women’s underwear instead of boxers, I presume.

Back when the world was sane, the insane were locked up in institutions.

Today they fly around in Lingerie and some get elected to Congress.

Flying was “Fun” when I could smoke on an overseas fight.
Flying was “Fun” when they actually had food on board.
Flying was “Fun” when I used to get free drinks from hot young stewardess’s named Mindy just because I was an American serviceman.
Flying was “Fun” when the only pat down you got was from a gal you had drinks with in the Rome airport.

Howard is not fun.
