Video: Too hot to fly?

posted at 6:40 pm on September 7, 2007 by Allahpundit

This post is almost, if not quite, as obligatory as the round of media appearances she wrung out of the incident this morning, starting with a revealing mishap on the Today show that may have inadvertently explained why the company got squeamish. Reminiscent of the MSA video yesterday, minus the appeals to Koranic authority and implicit threats of a beating with a stick. I think I speak for most straight men when I say: you’ve made yourself a powerful enemy, Southwest Airlines.

Guardian, are you saying that strip clubs are proper? You are just like the rest of these horny toads. Most of those strip clubs are nothing but pimp controlled joints that have coerced women down on their luck. A lot of them are on drugs and underaged. Tssskkkk. You all sound like a bunch of salivating Bill Clintons.

bloggless on September 7, 2007 at 10:25 PM

Not creeping sharia, creeping crud is more like it. EWWWWW! Look at all these fellers trying to justify their Clintons.

bloggless on September 7, 2007 at 10:26 PM

Am I the only one wondering if she’s really a woman in the first place? I’m not kidding, I haven’t read the comments, but Allah kicked this post off indicating this broad is hot, and I couldn’t disagree more. I’m not going to tear her apart fake piece by fake piece, but I’ll just leave it at the fact that I’m not convinced she was born female.

Now, the Lauer interview was hilarious. I get the impression he couldn’t stand up if he’d wanted to (you know what I’m talkin’ about), but the best is when he “plays devil’s advocate”, asking the tough questions, wondering if it were possible that her short skirt gave passengers a peak as they walked by… she says that this was impossible because her legs were crossed… only a minute after she just flashed the entire television audience! HAHAHHA! That was hilarious.

RightWinged on September 7, 2007 at 10:28 PM

The girl was dressed like a cheap hooker

She was dressed like a 23 year old college bimbo. Since when is that type of dress, so common in all the malls of America, worn by millions and millions of girls, all of a sudden not “appropriate” for an airline?

Since when?

Since just now.

That is why something doesn’t smell right.

canopfor on September 7, 2007 at 10:30 PM

RightWinged, I agree. I think she is homely in a manly sort of way. One of my complaints is that some men will look at anything with blonde hair and say it’s beautiful regardless of how ugly she might be.

bloggless on September 7, 2007 at 10:32 PM

I’m just a sucker for a spray-on tan, I guess…

Dork B. on September 7, 2007 at 10:33 PM

I don’t really understand the short skirt thing because the bikinis are next to nothing. And even if you can see up their skirt you wouldn’t be able to see anything other than what you might see with a girl in a bikini.

But a lot of stuff doesn’t make sense to me.

I have had clients take me to some respectable gentlemen clubs. It’s not the kind of thing I would partake in on my own but I won’t lie and say I hated it. I had a couple of drinks, enjoyed the show, and no touching or approaching the “customers” were allowed. I know that there are strip clubs that are really fronts for illicit behavior but none of my clients would be so stupid as to take me to one of those. In fact at one club there were quite a few couples. I have no problem enjoying beautiful women entertaining men in an adult atmosphere.

Guardian on September 7, 2007 at 10:37 PM

Whoa!!! Perverts?!?!?!? I think not. Are you telling me that since you’ve been married to your wife you’ve never once, ever looked a hot woman in a lustful manner??? If you so no, you’re lying. If you say yes, you’re a hypocrite. Geez, even that Christian angel Jimmah Carter lusted in his heart. So what??? Actions not thoughts are what matters.

Andy in Agoura Hills on September 7, 2007 at 8:32 PM

You lie. No guy never looks at another woman. I have dated women that would give most Hollyweird sluts a run for their money on looks and I still noticed others.

Heck, even Dennis Prager has spoken about male sexuality from a Judeo-Christian perspective and human nature.

Tim Burton on September 7, 2007 at 10:38 PM

The skirt is obviously not decent. It’s a mini-skirt cut short enough that one of her cracks would be visisble from some angle. Her panties were clearly visible during the interview.

She seemed proud to flash her honeypot to the world. Her mom seemed just as proud. For all of you dads out there who think it’s perfectly alright, you need to wake up to how sexualized kids have become. Episodes like this and this only up the ante.

Also, working at Hooters is not a crime. The food service sector is an important source of commerce and employment. The women there are not strippers and in every photo I’ve seen, they are wearing those hideous flesh covered leggings – not revealing. The only thing sexual about Hooters is the name.

Plus, dealing with hungry people has gotta suck. Imagine waiting tables for some of the mouth-breathers populating this thread.

The Race Card on September 7, 2007 at 10:39 PM

Looking closer at her face, you’re right. Not that great, but her figure…

Tim Burton on September 7, 2007 at 10:39 PM

That said, if her underwear was visible, it probably was inappropriate

Her underwear was visible, at least in the video, and it was inappropriate. So contrast the pass this girl is being given with the “no sagging” laws being passed all over the country that I bet most people here don’t have a problem with.

If it’s not okay for thugs to show off their boxers, why wouldn’t the same theory apply to skanky girls?

Laura on September 7, 2007 at 10:39 PM

Guardian, any woman who takes off her clothes to entertain strange men is not respectable, no matter how hard they try. And what makes these clubs “respectable”? You don’t know the first thing about these women, other than they get paid to show strange men their genitals and breasts. I guess they have nice pleather sofas and and cocktail napkins( no pun intended!). Anyway, if it is so respectable why would no man ever permit his daughter to work there?

bloggless on September 7, 2007 at 10:43 PM

Tim Burton, I’m thinking they are about 500 cc each. I hope she is a side sleeper.

ThackerAgency on September 7, 2007 at 10:36 PM

Never apply logic when dealing with sexual morals. Just as some men drool, other people recoil. Both are illogical. Actually, the recoiling is a bit more illogical, since it is not based on instinct.

Anyway, if she is at a beach in a bikini, do you not take your kids to the beach? Is a plane, where she will be seated and out of view, incidentally, some kind of sacrosanct venue?

Airplanes have become too politically correct. We all know this from the flying imams scandal and other incidents. Airplanes are considered like some United Nations assembly where half the representatives are from islamic countries and we must take care not to offend anybody.

This is why it reeks of sharia.

jihadwatcher on September 7, 2007 at 10:49 PM

For those wanna be drillers a few words: HIV,Gonnorrhea,syphilis,Herpes,Chlamydia,HPV (aka warts),Hepatitis, MRSA,. That is all.

bloggless on September 7, 2007 at 10:16 PM

I don’t think it is moral to jump in chicks beds, but where the heck do you get the idea that MRSA should be in that list?

I have had severe cases and it has directly caused me to be DQed 3 times from the military, I didn’t catch it from banging some chick. My brother also contracted it and he wasn’t sleeping with anyone, but his wife. (He actually got it from military service).

MRSA has nothing to do with sex, in fact every single person in the world has at least a few MRSA cells on their body and about 1/3 has it in what is considered colonized form.

This was an abscess on my face. It sure wasn’t caused by muff diving.

Now, I don’t know about her sexual history or care to know either. I just know I don’t want natural evil (STDs) for my acts of moral evil (sexual promiscuity).

Tim Burton on September 7, 2007 at 10:51 PM

Ya know…some people are really getting sick and tired of being ‘assaulted’ by views of other peoples’ very personal body parts. You want to see nearly naked women…or men…go to the places that offer you that. For the rest of us who don’t care to see what everyone else chooses to cover up…give us a break. The Mall, the grocery store, the neighborhood park, the airport…these are areas that all kinds of people have to visit. Lechers, exhibitionists, perverts, etc…assemble with like-minded others.

jatfla on September 7, 2007 at 10:55 PM

Thank gawd.

It’s one thing if some hottie prances around with her stuff showing, but once her lawyers are done setting a precedent, but just wait until it’s 60 year old men in short shorts suing the airline for discrimination against them.

More seriously, airlines are pretty crowded places and if SW wants to have a proper atmosphere, it’s their airplane. And I think all that is needed for a dress code is implicit in the fact that the airplane is private property and they can ask anyone they want to get off. Of course morning shows can take advantage of it for upskirt shots all they want too, if that’s the kind of show they want to be.

SouthernDem on September 7, 2007 at 10:29 PM

Oh, I was just snarkin’ on you. It’s a fascinating little sociology class we have going on here, though, isn’t it?

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this girl except that she was raised by a Mom with very low expectations. I don’t imagine Dad is anywhere to be found, and if he is, shame on him, too.

She’s lovely, in a manufactured sort of way. But she’s completely designed to attract the prurient interest of red-blooded hetero men.

The dyed hair, the fake tatas, the long legs — it’s all like a red flag to a field full of bulls. And then they traipse her around the tv studios looking for some walk-on movie parts. It’s kind of gross, but I commented Off-Topic to Allah about the first video before I saw it here, because I couldn’t look away.

Shame on me, too.

Jaibones on September 7, 2007 at 11:28 PM

And can you just imagine the blizzard of phone calls from the bottom feeders that this household is getting right now? The Girls Gone Wild and porno types? Playboy, Penthouse, etc.?

If she truly doesn’t understand the skirt thing yet, she will soon…

bloggless on September 7, 2007 at 10:43 PM

Welcome to the world of gentlemen. You don’t think business deals are hammered out over soda’s at Chuck E Cheese do you? You want your clients to be smiling and having a good time. Nothing makes a man smile like a beautiful woman.

Yes there ARE respectable gentlemen clubs. They have a strict dress and behavior code and they enforce it. A lot of the ladies are college women working their way through school.

My point was that a scantily clad woman belongs in a adult environment. Not in a public setting where she has a captured “audience” of children and anyone else who is unwilling to be “exposed” to her anatomy.

Guardian on September 7, 2007 at 11:50 PM

In love ain’t ya AP?

conservnut on September 7, 2007 at 9:51 PM

We can certainly hope.

The airline needs a dress code policy and quick.

With that said:

After her Today Show ‘appearance’ the airlines will be happy to show up in court and after playing the tape ask, were your panties when you were on the flight the same white ones like they were when you flashed them to everyone on the Today Show?

You can bet she had that mini skirt pulled down on the show as far as possible (and still showed her panties on national TV) and who knows its position while on the airline.
Without a long shirt a lot of tummy would have been exposed.
It was short enough if pulled up to flash without sitting down.

Of course the same thing could have happened with a longer skirt too.
Regardless, if your going to go around snapping everybody’s picture expect some people to be camera shy.

Speakup on September 7, 2007 at 11:54 PM

She can sit on my lap.

Talon on September 7, 2007 at 11:59 PM

AP-

You forgot the words SEXY and BOOB in the title.

As in:

BOOBS at Southwest Air say HOT girl too SEXY to fly.

But glad to see you took the traffic hints.

Southwest should lose their honey-roasteds over this puritannical lunacy.

(Is this an Islamically-owned airline? Research…?)

Yes it is an interesting departure from the normal threads. Mostly.

SouthernDem on September 8, 2007 at 12:08 AM

Her mini would unravel if she farted. You’re not going to the beach, miss. Play dress up for the youngins

Captain America on September 8, 2007 at 12:15 AM

Only one person has made the observation that was the first thing I thought – on an airline, there is no way to be flashed by someone sitting in their seat, unless you are going out of your way to get a view, and even then, it would take some doing.

Her skirt is kind of tacky, but there is no denying that you can see women wearing more revealing clothes in any restaurant, bus, or shopping mall in California. I think the airline could have handled this better.

LagunaDave on September 8, 2007 at 12:21 AM

Only one person has made the observation that was the first thing I thought – on an airline, there is no way to be flashed by someone sitting in their seat, unless you are going out of your way to get a view, and even then, it would take some doing.

I was thinking the same thing; Cattle car airlines (aka Southworst) doesn’t have a lot of space to lay back and take a gander; you’re boarding, you’re looking for a seat, some fat d&&khead is hitting you with his carry on as he tries to cram it in the overhead; how is her STD laden backside getting viewed by the entire planet? I have to admit, there was a lot said in this thread that I find a lot more offensive than accidentally seeing someone’s underwear. My first question would be: What were you doing staring at her crotch? Everyone wants to pass judgement on the poor girl (skank, slut, cheap hooker); subhuman hasn’t come up yet; anybody want to throw that one out there? And what’s this crap about STD’s and her skirt? You’re afraid of catching something where she sat down? Do you lick airplane seats habitually? She’s probably at a greater risk of picking something up from the seat because of how’s she’s dressed.
Do I find her attactive? Not really. But if she’s quiet and in her own seat, I don’t think she deserves to be humiliated and kicked off the plane. And I don’t think she deserves the open range nastiness being dumped on her in here.

It was inappropriate to dress like that and anybody doesn’t think so is not a ‘conservative’

Behead those who don’t dress like we want them to, eh? I must have missed your appointment as Minister of Appropriate Conservative Dress Code in Young Pioneers magazine. So, to be a true conservative, I guess I’ve got to be a classist elitist snob. You know, you might be on to something. Maybe everytime we see a scantily clad female, we should all throw rocks at her or something? Lighten up, Francis. If you don’t like how she dresses, quit staring at her.

austinnelly on September 8, 2007 at 12:56 AM

Let’s face it, it is time for us all to adopt the fashion recommendations of the Phophet Mohammed.

“… I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one…”

What greater sin is there than offending Muslims on a plane by the way we look, act, speak, or are?

Halley on September 8, 2007 at 1:04 AM

I love it when others decide for you whether or not you are conservative enough.
Such as “real conservatives don’t dress like that, or look at broads that dress like that”.

Several times in the past I have started conversations deliberately designed to get a staunch conservative measuring contest going, and in the circles where I do so, it never fails.
But ply these men with enough liquor, and the stories they will tell!!
Note:
(Here is a “real” conservative’s opportunity to note how real conservatives don’t ply themselves or others with liquor)

OneEyedJack on September 8, 2007 at 1:17 AM

best part of this whole story is the fact that Martha MacCullum convened a panel of experts to discuss ramifications.

Heh, ramifications.

John from OPFOR on September 8, 2007 at 1:18 AM

The major irony is that Southwest made their name in the ’60′s and ’70′s by having their flight attendants wear HOT PANTS.

Just imagine what that dress will look like after she sits down in an aircraft seat. Great view. On second thoughts you wouldn’t have to imagine anything.

davod on September 8, 2007 at 3:12 AM

If this were a big fat hairy GUY in a Speedo … or a THONG … just coming from the beach, with his mouse pokin’ out of the house, everybody here who says it’s ok for this girl to flash her panooch would be screamin’ “Cover him up!” But because it’s a hot babe, then it’s ok.

Sorry to those who don’t like the definition of liberal and conservative. But it is what it is. Allowing a woman to show her stuff in public is liberal. Ya might be a con on taxes but you can also be a lib on this topic.

Found this little Southwest clip.

kiakjones on September 8, 2007 at 7:24 AM

As a private company, SWA should be able to make decisions based upon what they think is best for their business. We don’t need lawyers or the government dictating dress codes.
Let the market decide if SWA’s decisions are correct or not.

tgillian on September 8, 2007 at 7:31 AM

Prior to the ’70′s, grown-up’s ruled the world. They said “no wife/daughter/sister of mine is going in public dressed like that.” We didn’t call it Sharia then.

Today, cultural norms are determined by the under 40′s, so the girl in question isn’t a wife or daughter, but a ho to induct into the mile-high club.

We used to get on planes and not even imagine we could have sex before we landed. Quaint, ‘aint it?

I really would like to know who made the complaint and why.

The only people I want thrown off planes are guys with their underpants sticking out, but it’s their right to look like fools and I defend that right along with that of a twenty-three year old to wear a mini skirt (especially that last one).

My money is on a Muslim that is too privative to control his urges. If that’s the case, they should stick him in a prayer blanket and stuff him in cargo

Good grief. Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

When I was in high school and college, I used to dress pretty provocatively. But compared to what these skanky Paris/Britney wannabes are wearing, I was practically in a burkha. I think that’s really what’s bugging me about this – if girls can now acceptably flash their crotch in public, what’s left for my daughter’s generation to do? Public masturbation?

Laura on September 8, 2007 at 9:13 AM

There’s so many things wrong with this situation, and the parasites lawyers are circling now.

Is SW Air a private company that reserves the right to refuse service to anyone? Yes. Does her outfit scream ‘cork me, guys’? Oh, yas! Will this stupid situation result in a histrionic lawsuit of exorbitant proportions? Unfortunately, yes.

The only thing this boils down to is: ‘was she wearing panties?’ Yes or no. If yes, then one can get a bigger eye full of boobs n booty dental floss at a public beach, and SW air is going down.

If no, then that hooters restaurant is going to be over flowing with corks….and she’ll get a raise (no pun).

locomotivebreath1901 on September 8, 2007 at 9:53 AM

The truth be told; as a Hooters employee Southwest was considering here a secret shopper and was not about to let the competition “Hooters” Air gain any trade secrets of how to run an airline.

MSGTAS on September 8, 2007 at 10:11 AM

profitsbeard on September 8, 2007 at 10:46 AM

I’m disgusted by PRIME TIME TV shows and thong wear on daytime TV that 3 to 9 year olds can see throughout the week each and every day. Nothing is ‘sacred’ on free national TV anymore, why would we expect different outside our doors?
Now if she were 350 pounds with excess skin and canyon sized cleavage hanging out everywhere, then throw her off. Those abundant, seemingly ubiquitous women, should be banned from outdoors everywhere.
– Leave her alone and focus on the bad guys.

shooter on September 8, 2007 at 10:46 AM

Forgive me if this has been pointed out already–I didn’t read all the comments. But has it occurred to any of you that she very likely wasn’t wearing panties on the flight? Or that she was wearing some of those itty-bitty thong panties that are basically some string and a tiny transparent triangle that don’t count as coverage to any thinking person (and I’m sure most of the males reading this right now already stopped thinking the moment I suggested that she wasn’t wearing panties)??? If she wasn’t covered under the skirt, it’s clear from the Today Show appearance that everything under there is clearly visible when she sits and stands and crosses and uncrosses her legs. If she was not wearing panties or had on a transparent thong, I agree with the airline about asking her to leave. I also wonder if she was wearing a bra. The shirt was so tight it wouldn’t leave anything to the imagination, even with that “sweater” thing over it.

Mcguyver on September 8, 2007 at 11:28 AM

As I posted in another thread, I remember a time when we dressed as ladies and gentlemen when we traveled (e.g., suits and ties, etc.), because we were sensitive to the sensibilities of other travelers, and because we respected ourselves. Now it seems the only thing we care about is what we want, be it slovenly comfort or sophomoric attention. This girl dresses the way she does to get attention; she’s simply unhappy that she can’t control precisely what that attention is. Toughen up, Toots–when you begin to behave as a lady, you’ll find you are treated as one.

DrMagnolias on September 8, 2007 at 12:31 PM

Exactly right, Dr. M.

There’s a place for dressing like that … the beach, the clubs, the CORNER … but not at church, Wal-Mart, at school, the supermarket or on an airplane.

Tony737 on September 8, 2007 at 2:21 PM

I for one am glad they tossed her barely covered a** off the plane.

Most people over 50 can remember the days when flying was something you dressed up for. Men, even college aged kids, wore a necktie.

Now, like the rest of American society, flying is a competition to see what man can look the most like a pimped out, fantasy sport playing dweeb, and the women compete for who can look the most like Barbi wh*re.

I like to look at scantily clad pretty girls . . . but they have their place, and I don’t think this was it.

She works for Hooters . . . perhaps she has been raised to believe that her body is who she is . . . next stop Playboy.

And pardon a little armchair psych; her mom was there. I wonder what the primary male influence in her life is? Perhaps her unemployed BF who “really loves her.” She is surrounded at work by leering men who value her for her body . . . maybe she feels a wee bit insecure and thinks the way to succeed is by flashing what she has.

Lastly, she apparenly WAS NOT dressed like this on the flight. Her T shirt was pulled up to her breasts and her pants, w/o the benefit of the shirt, made her look like a plumber from behind, if you know what I mean.

Labamigo on September 8, 2007 at 2:45 PM

How dare those jackbooted thugs at Southwest Airlines mistreat a fine, upstanding young skank?

OhioCoastie on September 8, 2007 at 3:21 PM

This is stupid. this is the crap that gives Repulicians a bad name. Listen the airline, church, and the supermarket are not my daddy. I could care less how anyone dresses. If they want to show their low class and dress like a slut more power to them. It is a reflection on them. It is not my business how they dress. I have enough self control to either ignore or look away from something I find objectionable. Like turning off the TV or radio a person’s dress is easy to avoid. On an airplane just look away or read a book. It is this repressed sexuility of Islam and the strict Christians that want to make everyone follow their logic and morals that is causing all the problems in society today. I wouldn’t let my daughter dress like that but I could care less if my nerighbor’s daughter dressed like that. It is NONE of MY BUSINESS.

You could not be more wrong. We’re not at all repressed. The authoritative 1995 University of Chicago survey Sex in America found that conservative Protestant married women were the group most likely to report that they “nearly always” orgasmed during sex. We’re getting it on more and enjoying it more than our secular sisters, in fact. You might pause to consider the reasons for that.

And people can dress like skanks all day long – and they do, and we’re not out on the street beating them and forcing them to cover up. But when the line is crossed as far as public decency – including showing underclothing, or areas that underclothing would normally cover – then yes, your clothing or lack of it is other people’s business.

Those abundant, seemingly ubiquitous women, should be banned from outdoors everywhere.
- Leave her alone and focus on the bad guys.

You have issues.

The Race Card on September 8, 2007 at 4:34 PM

It IS your business. It’s a societal issue. Maybe YOU don’t care, but what about the OTHER people on the plane? Maybe THEY do. We only think about ourselves, what about other people? What if their kids are seeing this? How about if I use the F word around your kids? Hey, it’s my right, I have the freedom of speech, I’ll say whatever I want, it’s none of your business, right? That’s a very leftist point of view. Freedom without responsibility. You don’t want your kid hearing the F word. I don’t want my kid seeing men walk around naked. What if a nudist got on the plane or the bus and sat next to your kid? Hey, man, I’m ok, you’re, like do your own thing man. What if I wanna smoke in front of your kid at IHOP? Maybe the guy at the next table doesn’t care, but YOU do. Everybody has SOMETHING they don’t wanna put up with. A hot chick showin’ off her stuff isn’t the one issue that bothers you, but something does.

Tony737 on September 8, 2007 at 4:56 PM

Tony737,

I really don’t see anything wrong with her outfit. That’s the way she chooses to dress. Don’t look lest ye be tempted to fantasize about doing things in the airplane’s bathroom with her. It seems like more like a self control problem.

Egfrow on September 8, 2007 at 5:38 PM

It’s about personal responsibility. You have to blame someone for wanting to stroke one off in the middle of a flight.

Egfrow on September 8, 2007 at 5:40 PM

Her skirt is way too short, but thats not the issue. They could have just handed her a blanket in the first place. Do they kick off gagsta’s with their boxers showing? Doubt it.

ctmom on September 8, 2007 at 5:45 PM

if girls can now acceptably flash their crotch in publicwhile anchoring for Fox News, what’s left for my daughter’s generation to do? Public masturbation?

Laura on September 8, 2007 at 9:13 AM

Heh. It’ll come full circle. Just wait.

I mean, come on! If you’re not doing coke in the nightclub restroom with your daughter, what’s wrong with you?

PRCalDude on September 8, 2007 at 5:49 PM

Trannylicious comes to my mind… Girlfriend is hot only if she’s really a dude and then not even. What the heck has happened to good, old-fashioned, girl next door americans? Seriously, when did all these women start getting so masculine while the men are getting more feminine?

There’s a time and a place for everything and wearing a belt as a skirt in public is a bad idea. The top was ok but the “skirt” should be burned.

yggdrasil on September 8, 2007 at 5:52 PM

The “hey, look at me” attention whore got what she wanted.

Captain America on September 8, 2007 at 8:16 PM

Do they kick off gagsta’s with their boxers showing? Doubt it.

ctmom on September 8, 2007 at 5:45 PM

Several cities have banned sagging. That’s not pertinent to SW’s decision, of course, but it’s an indicator of the standards of public decency being enforced for a similar offense.

Laura on September 8, 2007 at 8:26 PM

Egfrow, the outfit in the picture is not what she was wearing on the plane. I’ve seen less than that and it’s no problem, but the outfit she WAS wearing on the plane (not pictured) was *too* revealing. It’s not a matter of self control, we’re not muslims ready to rape a woman for dressing like that. It’s a matter of societal norms. Would you hire a “Goth” kid who wore black eyeliner and lipstick to an interview? No. Would you let a convicted rapist babysit your daughter? No. Would you let a nude man eat at your resturant? No. There are things we as a society accept and those that we do not. A woman flashing her coochie on a plane is not just wrong, it’s unsanitary. We live in a world of right and wrong. Agree or disagree, that is the society we live in.

Nobody answered my question from waaaay above… I work for SWA, I once made a tranny cover up his big fake boobs before getting on my plane. Was I wrong? He had on nothing but a bikini top with tiny little triangles covering his nips. Should I have let him on the plane like that? Anyone? Anyone?

Tony737 on September 8, 2007 at 8:27 PM

Wanna bet her role models are Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Nicole Richie. I willing to bet they would not have been tossed off the plane.

Wuptdo on September 8, 2007 at 9:15 PM

OK. Compelled to add my .02 cents. Watched the news clip. Yes, her skirt is SHORT. I’m a leg man. Always have been. Yes, propriety is a good thing. But. Comments about other extremes of people sitting beside you are valid. If she’s clean, smells good, if she’s quiet, I wouldn’t have a problem with her. If she sat down next to me, not much I would see other than her legs. Not a big deal. Yes, propriety is seriously lacking these days. But, she’s not a problem. She said she sat with a blanket over her legs. Problem solved. Now, if she sat across from me on an Amtrak Pullman car…um…that would be uncomfortable. I’d probably be open and honest with her and mention the distraction and offer her my jacket to put over her legs…

Roger Brown on September 9, 2007 at 12:18 AM

Darn, I’m late to the party on this one. But hey, I’ve been busy. Anyway, here goes:

They’ll never say who complained.

Maybe the dems will finally find a practical application for the John Doe legislation after all.

and just today Rush was talking about a carpenter in California that works naked!

Ropera on September 7, 2007 at 7:25 PM

Talk about “swingin’ a hammer”…

I’m a Christian who only has eyes for my wife.

Super. But the rest of us here are not married to your wife. If you can post some nudes, that would help us out.

jihadwatcher on September 7, 2007 at 8:53 PM

A rabbi and a minister were enjoying a moment of comraderie when the first, in the spirit of confession, tells the other, “I had sexual relations with my wife before marriage. How about you? The other replies, “I don’t know. What was your wife’s maiden name?”

Move along…

Captain Scarlet on September 9, 2007 at 3:38 AM

Tony737, no, you weren’t wrong. Airplanes aren’t the place for bikinis or band aids, as it sounds more like in this case (the transexual’s). The fact that other customers thanked you says quite a bit, too.

The worst I’ve ever seen were european football (soccer) fans waiting in line, probably drunk, definitely singing too loud. They didn’t care one bit about anyone else but their own little groups. Irritating as heck but too many people in today’s society don’t seem to care about the effect their behavior may have on others in public. Go home and sing or wait until you get to the stadium but until then, kindly shut it.

yggdrasil on September 9, 2007 at 3:40 PM

I feel cheated that I’ve never sat next to a hot chick like that in all my days flying. Obviously, Southwest is wrong here and stupid to boot.

I used to work for Southwest Airlines at their headquarters at Love Field and can tell you that they treat their contractors pretty bad. They have an orientation program for their regular employees where they train them to insult the contractors. It’s quite something to be talked down to like dirt by some stewardess in training who has a high school diploma when you have a master’s degree and are making their software work.

The most irritating thing about SWA is that they would keep inviting contractors to their social events and then uninvite them a couple hours before. I don’t know what the point of that was but they loved doing it. Perhaps the most comical time they did it was when they threw a big party one afternoon to thank all the employees for all the hard work they did to make SWA successful. They invited the contractors, then uninvited them right before the party. In some cases, subordinate employees went to the party while their contractor bosses stayed and worked. I stopped answering the email invites after I figured out the game.

Their management was none too honest with the contractors either.

I wouldn’t recommend working there in IT. They don’t pay market rate salary for their regular employees, so they tend to collect mediocre programmers from the DFW market. They tend to be rather ruthless with their contractors, making them false promises to string them along. A bad employer for computer workers. However, it might be better in other departments.

Tantor on September 9, 2007 at 7:39 PM

tantor,

Whatever. Way off topic, here.

I saw this vid from Today again, and I’m surprised more people didn’t notice. She has her “skirt” pulled down so far and covered by her t-shirt, that she probably needed to shave to avoid a new scandal. And she still couldn’t keep her muffin covered.

Pulled up the way she undoubtedly wore it on the plane, I have no doubt that it was absolutely obscene.

Jaibones on September 9, 2007 at 10:02 PM

The girl’s clothing was well beyond any line of decency for traveling on a public conveyance that requires passengers to be seated, as proved by the Today Show clip. Saddest of all is her goldbricking mother, who was willing to sit there while her daughter’s “humiliation” was reconstructed half a dozen times on the morning talk shows.

She clearly pulled her skirt well below it’s normal resting place for the TV bits, in an attempt to give the impression of decency, and it still failed miserably.

The airline has a right to choose who flies and who doesn’t. If they are going to make such a decision, though, they should have simply refunded her fare and said goodbye, instead of playing such a game with the issue.

She flew to Tucson, she flew back, she made her appointment. Her claims of emotional distress end with her showing off her outfit on national TV. If she were distressed, she wouldn’t expand the range of those to whom her humiliation were presented.
