RE: Too Sexy To Fly? Southwest's New Attitude?

Fri Sep 07, 2007 1:01 am

Oay, so this topic has me laughing like crazy! It reminds me of the game telephone where the story gets so twisted that by the end everything is all twisted up! I am not Keith and not related to Keith, just F.Y.I. I have read the blogs on this site for years but I can't believe that this will be my very first post! Of course there is a little more to the story!

Now ask yourself, do you dress differently when you know your picture is going to be taken? For a newspaper, maybe? I know I would! So, just to let everybody know, this young lady was NOT wearing a white t-shirt under the sweater thing that day. Look at her picture again, and imagine it WITHOUT the white T-shirt underneath. Now, I would not have a problem wwith that myself. But as you can see she has a larger chest, the supervisor "Keith" had to deal with the DANGEROUS situation she was presenting. If the a/c had to make an emergency landing, it was entirely conceivable that her breasts would be flying in all directions, thereby knocking her out unconscious, as well as anybody sitting next to her, since this lady was wearing no bra and relying on a the tied top to keep her boobs under control, which would UNDOUBTEDLY break apart. On top of that, if she did not get knocked out by her own boobs flying every which way, there is still no way she would be able to evacuate the aircraft in a timely manner through the overwing exit doors. People COULD have died waiting to get out of the jet while she stuffed one breast through, then the other, then her body, assuming that her breasts did not get stuck in the tiny opening! So, as you can see, this was most definitely a very dangerous situation! LMAO!

Whoever linked her MySpace page, that was a much more accurate representation of her, but of course she has it on restricted access now. I wonder why?

As to what kind of doctor she was going to see in TUS, I will leave that up to everyone here to decide. I'm having too much fun seeing how twisted this is getting!

P.S. I love the guy that always says "Get some seasoning, kid! "

Now, take a look at her Myspace pictures and that'll change your mind! I won't link them here

Hi, I think she will benefit from all this publicity, due to pictures (WARNING: Explicit) that are available through this link, (see the "another" picture) and the fact that she probably is some kind of attention seeking person. I know my XYL would say that the subject has no assets worth mentioning, as can be explicitly seen in that photo.

I wonder why would anyone publish such photos on a public web site, in an almost obscene manner ?

Ok...does anyone else notice that she's waving the "shocker" at the camera?

I gotta ask if the airline is allowed to run itself the way it sees fit and if people don't like it can they not just buy a ticket on someone elses airline?

If she was flashing the other passengers then perhaps the skirt was a little short for some people's taste if they don't like seeing female genitalia in public. Maybe the airline was concerned for the other passengers and they were correct in doing so...

She's obviously got zero problem showing off for the public (from her myspace photos) but maybe others do.

Sounds like something the airline ought to get to decide and bear the consequences one way or the other.

I seriously doubt that she went commando....especially with a skirt that short. And i'll say it again, if that outfit is "offensive" to the airline or to Keith or to maybe a handful of passengers, well that's their problem, really. An airline isn't your parent. It's not there to defend or protect your beliefs. It's a mode of transportation. It's just as easy to look the other way as it is to look. Show me proof that she flashed passengers, and I'll stand corrected. Otherwise, this was a laughable. But if WN (or any other carrier) truly wants to enforce a dress policy, then it should be made crystal clear to people when they buy the ticket. Maybe Keith thought a new episode of "Airline" was being filmed and he wanted to display his authority.  Big grin

'Keith' was probably recently rejected by some attractive woman and decided to take it out on this young lady. Or maybe some other jealous, likely female, passenger decided to be a bitch and complained about her.

There is such a thing as public indecency; you dont go to the airport dressed like a hooker and expect no one to notice. WN is completely within their rights to throw her off, especially since they gave her a chance to change, if she wanted to dress like she does at hooters she should have gotten on the defunct hooters airlines. Remember, no shoes no shirts, no service,or in this case, teasing. Youd be surprised what airlines can do in regards to who they choose to serve and who they dont. But in this case, this lady was just being stupid. You go to a club dressed the way she was; not an airline, where despite the fact a lot of male passengers were probably enjoying the "show", not everyone was happy looking at her "stuff".

Sorry man. I'll respectfully disagree here. Attire like that would certainly not constitute a liability for an airline. Not even close. And I have worked for the airlines.

In this case it is anything but valid. If this was a proven example of lewd conduct, behavior, or dress, sure. She would deserve to be kicked off the plane. But since her clothes are no more revealing than what people wear on a daily basis (even though some people may not like it, it's a fact of life), it's all a moot point.

Here are two practical reasons why not to wear a skirt that short on an airplane.

First, if there is a fire, a woman wearing a skirt that short has no protection. A freind of mine is a pilot with AA and owns 2 single-engine airplanes. Under no circumstances will he let anyone fly with him wearing shorts or a mini skirt. If there is a flash fire, pants or a long skirt offers good burn protection, while shorts or a mini skirt increase the risk of severe burns on the legs.

Second, if there is an emergency evacuation of the aircraft, a woman wearing a mini skirt is going to get rug burns from sliding down the emergency slides. The slides are textured, so that a passenger doesn't fly off the slide at the bottom. The downside is that the slide can tear up clothing, pantyhose/tights, and bare skin.

Ok, not even diving into the rest of your post, how is this in any way related to "if she was in a g-string and mesh bra"? She was clearly in nothing close to that. And if people can't deal with seeing women in short skirts, they might as well not leave the house, because you see them everywhere.

Practical, yes, but few (and I mean few) women actually think about those aspects (let alone a mirror to see what it is they are really wearing, I digress) when they get ready. It is bad enough the crew wears a poly-wool blend (and females with the hose (which melt in high heat - again, I digress)).

As long as women dress they she did, straight men have something to look at and talk about to their friends.

I have to take Southwest side on this. Yes flying dress codes has change since the 70's, but you should still dress like you have some type of class, if you going to fly. Look there are young children on these planes, and they should not have to look at a woman that dress like a stripper. I believes she got what she deserve.

Way to go Southwest!

I'm thinking that most women who are "pros" know a good bit about how to dress properly for the audience. More over I'm sure most are not selling thier wares on board in a open and direct fashion as spending the weekend getting it sorted out with the police isn't a good buisness practice.

Seriously, this woman was an attention whore, and its amazing that people here are against having proper atire for the venue. You don't wear a bikini to the opera, and you don't wear a Tux to a dive bar at your local fishing dock. Seems resonable that you don't wear revealing clothing on public transport.


Think of it this way, you are locking your self into a small room with 130 other people who you don't know for several hours. dress like it

What a teriffic outfit! She's a beautiful woman and it doesn't look like her clothes would get her in any trouble with the law in public. Still, it's Southwest's airplane and in my view if a representative of the airline believes her outfit will offend others, they have the legal right to remove her from the airplane. I sure wouldn't have protested her being on the flight however!  Smile

My suspicions were correct. The article and included photo do not tell whole story. She did not look like that at the time of the incident. Feel free to PM me if you care to know more.

Southwest should be totally used to this type of attire considering the number of "worker bee" types that fly from the L.A. and San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose areas to Las Vegas each weekend to make a living at the oldest profession.

Now I'm trying to sugar coat the obvious here...but have any of you flown from any of these cities to LAS on a Thursday afternoon? Trust me. It's a talent show on these flights each week.

Quoting Geotrash (Reply 126):
What a teriffic outfit! She's a beautiful woman and it doesn't look like her clothes would get her in any trouble with the law in public. Still, it's Southwest's airplane and in my view if a representative of the airline believes her outfit will offend others, they have the legal right to remove her from the airplane. I sure wouldn't have protested her being on the flight however! Smile

I agree that the outfit was not offensive... certainly not offensive enough to be booted off a flight.

And although i agree that Southwest has the right to deny service, I think denying service onto a flight is a lot different than , say, denying service in a restaurant. By the time you're ready to board a flight you've already entered into a contract with the airline. You've paid your money and they've agreed to take you from point A to point B at a certain time. Now if the airline wishes to break that contract, I think they'd better have a pretty compelling reason to do so. And I think those reasons could be challenged if they're found to be frivolous.

Airlines give you a discount generally if you buy tickets in advance, and they charge if you make last-minute changes. So if the airline imposes a last-minute change on us, especially for no good reason, I think they should rightfully pay a penalty to us (like when your flight is bumped).

Since when did America become the land of the clothing faciscts!!!????? Like others have said on this forum 30 years ago the FA's were wearing skirts with hemlines somewhere in Alaska and blouses that might just hold in the boobs if you were lucky (or unlucky depending on how you want to take that)

Seriously there is nothing offensive about wearing an outfit like that unless she wasn't wearing any underwear, which is a point that WN should have bought up if that was the case.

So if the airline can deny boarding to a passenger at the last minute for a rather frivolous reason (breaking their contract with their customer), shouldn't passengers be able to cancel or modify our flights without penalty if:

We don't like the look of their airplanes
The cabin is too messy
There's been controversial news on TV about the airline that we don't like
The pilots or flight attendants look too gruff or smell bad
You find out they serve awful food
The service has been bad

My point is, that this passenger and Southwest entered into a contract to transport her from San Diego to Tuscon at a given time - and she fulfilled her end of the contract by paying for the flight beforehand. If Southwest can unilaterally cancel or alter that contract, why can't passengers do the same?

All this talk about "airlines have the right to do bla bla bla" for whatever reason they choose is silly. A deal is a deal and they'd better have a damn good reason to break it.

Every flight would be more enjoyable with more women like Ms. Kyra on board. Airlines oughta focus on things they have real trouble with, like being on time, baggage, surly customer svc. Granted, WN is ahead of the curve on those type of problems, but they're far from perfect. Herb K wouldn't have had a problem with Ms. Kyra....I like the response of the one guy who said he wouldn't want to sit next to Kyra bcse of the temptation...

And you have the quality of an idiot to judge me. You dont know me and probably never will. I express an opinion and get shit on from you. I guess were not allowed to bash the RC Church.

Back to the real topic, I am waiting for a response on Myspace from the passenger we are discussing.

The video clip is called LiveLeak. One wonders what she was leaking.

Upon seeing a video (see post 141 from DeC) from the NBC Today Show, to me she showed somewhat poor judgement in her outfit for an air flight or a day trip. Her 'skirt' was not more than an 8 inch strip of an old pair of white jeans hanging on her hips, the top edge about 1-2 inches above and the bottom hem about 4-5 inches below her womanhood and her 'top' was basically a stetched t-shirt. It was perhaps more appropriate for a night club or going to the beach rather than an airflight.
As noted by others, her tiny outfit could cause problems in case of an emergency and may be offensive or uncomfortable to other pax.
That apparently there was no complaints, indeed, she said she got some 'compliments' on her return flight as to her outfit suggests a bit of luck of not running across some prude. That she does appear to be a rather attractive woman probably didn't cause problems from others. Imanage if she weighted 150 pounds, with 'muffin tops' spilling over the top of the jeans. (Ugh!).

Maybe no one complained directly to her, but there were complaints.

Safety problems? Yeah right. Then ban high-heel shoes. I think she'd be out that door quicker than most people.

Again, is this a judgment call you think Southwest should be making? Just fly the damn plane. Get people from point A to point B, people don't have to like each other for the 2 hours they'll be spending together.
