Also, the girl, according to the article, goes to Mesa college.
Please check the SWA Contract of Carriage, Section 10, Subsection F, Part 1.
And I quote: "Comfort and Safety - Carrier may refuse to transport or remove from the aircraft at any point an passenger in the following categories as may be necessary for the comfort or safety of such passenger or other passengers:
1. Persons whose conduct is or has been known to be disorderly, abusive, offensive, threatening, intimidating, or violent, or whose clothing is lewd, obscene, or patently offensive."
Southwest Airlines has the right to refuse service to anyone they deem necessary to do so to - as do all airlines.
Most people don't read the fine print on their tickets or even bother to think that there could possibly be - shock, horror - a dress code for flying. What kind of appointment was she going to that she felt a miniskirt and tanktop was appropriate?
Y'know, the more I thought about this, the less I felt sympathetic for the woman. OK, she's got a great body and she's one of the women who can get away with wearing a mini and a tank top. I'm jealous, I'll admit it.
But there's a time and place for wearing of said mini and tank. On a plane isn't one. If she was trying to combat the heat - how about a pair of shorts and a short sleeved t-shirt? If she felt the need for her mini and tank, then why didn't she pack that in a small carry on bag?

Here is a bit more from the Today show http://allday.msnbc.msn.com/archive/...07/348617.aspx
It has a close up photo of her face . . . She is 23????????
Also the article mentions that standing was one thing . .. however when she sat she showed a bit much to the audience.
I have a feeling that the tank top neckline was also a bit lower prior to adjustment.
Honestly if a passenger on the flight complained . . .then the airline was attempting to provide Customer Service to that person . . .could have been someones Religious beliefs . . .could have been too many teen age boys and the chaperone complained . . .yes, it could have been a jealous female . . .all kinds of options.
So now this all becomes about how mean the airline is . . .mostly because they are chosing to not join in on the media circus. Knowing what I know about Southwest . . . I have a strong feeling that their were complaints made and that was when they got involved.

Actually, it was a doctor's appointment... I'm not going to get into why she's flying out of state for a doctor's appointment (maybe it's her home state and she goes away to college or whatever). I will say, however, that IMHO, the outfit is not particularly a "going to the doctor's" outfit either, but silly me, I try to dress in such a manner that nobody's going to get a shot of my goods when I sit down, and if I'm going to the gyno to have the goods examined, I'm only showing them to the dr. & nurse, not the rest of the waiting room, thank you.

Okay, I've been able to watch part of Matt's interview-- thanks for the link, Em-- the streaming sucks on this end, so I've only been able to watch less than 2 minutes of the damned thing in 15 minutes... but alas, her skirt IS too short for sitting... even when she sat down (at about 1min30) on the Today show, you could see her panties. I still think the airline kicking her off the flight was overreacting.
k, now I'm confused, because according to the orginal aticle, she was kicked off, but the Today article that Emrld posted states that she was allowed to continue the flight but had to cover up.
SO, if the latter is the case...then the airline has no fault other than they attempted to enforce the rules outlined in the carraige contract that Lady Sarah posted, and the passenger is a drama queen who's attempting to look for her 5 seconds of infamy.
She *didn't* lose her seat, (if the latter article is correct) she took a drubbing to her "pride" by being called out (more than likely by another passenger, I know had the hooker flashed one of my boys or my husband, I probably would have said something, but it would have been cheekily said at full volume.) and now she's looking for recompense that isn't deserved. She wasn't hurt by any action that the airline took. SHE choose to wear items that revealed her underclothes to passengers on the plane. The flight attendants (or whatever they prefer to be called these days) brought her to a remote locatation to ensure *her* safety and privacy while they told her of her fashion faux-pas, and then SHE choose to ignore their (IMHO) sage advice. At that time (again, according to the latest article) they allowed her BACK on the airplane, simply asking her to cover her nether regions like any NORMAL adult would do in public.
After all, we don't exactly allow nudist colonies to ride our friendly skies in their all-togethers, now do we? Although...now that I think about it....when they decide to allow that...I'm all for flying a hell of a lot more often. *cheeky grin*

Maybe the airlines should have a sign at the boarding gate, sort of like on carnival rides:
"Your skirt must be this long to enter the plane."
The lawyer is right. If it had been Paris Hilton in the same outfit, she would have been shown to her seat and offered a drink. I've seen more revealing outfits on the red carpet.
I agree her skirt is way too short, and I really don't want to see some girl's underpants on my way to the bathroom, but still, with her legs crossed, it's fine.
