Southwest Airlines and the Mini Skirt

Say what now? Southwest Airlines employee acting like Osama Bin Laden’s “fashion” police when they tried to prevent Kyla Ebbert a 23 year old student and Hooters waitress from boarding her flight to Tuczon. Ebbert was “caught” by the “morality” police oooppps sorry I meant she was wearing what customer service attendant identified only as Keith as inappropriate.

Kyla Ebbert arrived at Lindbergh Field wearing a white denim miniskirt, high-heel sandals, and a turquoise summer sweater over a tank top over a bra. The picture shows her actual outfit at the time she was deemed inappropriately dressed or lack thereof if you ask the “fashion morality police” of the Osama type. Geez, I can’t believe this is happening in this day and age were women dressed more scantily than what she was wearing.

It seems that Southwest Airlines has a tendency to enforce their “dress code” judging from this blog, which I quote:

The airline that once booted a passenger off a flight for wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words Meet the Fockers—it had pictures of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Condoleeza Rice— is making travel fashion headlines once again.

Kyla Ebbert a paying airline customer says she was unfairly judge and humiliated at being asked to step out of the plane and told to change her attire. Since she was traveling briefly to her doctors appointment she had no luggage or extra clothes and had she not stood her ground the attendant would not have relented. This after she was given a “lecture” to pull her mini skirt down a bit, pull up her tank top a bit and told to return to her seat. Ebbert says several flight attendants overheard the conversation and, after an embarrassing walk down the aisle, she took her seat and spread a blanket over her lap. Now if that is not humiliating and embarrasing I don’t know what is…….. unless you ask that convicted welfare fraud Khatib whose embarrassment seems out of place… like in a jail.
