When did airlines start enforcing dress codes? This weekend social media saw United Airlines get blasted for not allowing girls to board a flight for simply wearing leggings.
According to CNN Money, Shannon Watts, the founder of the anti-gun violence group Moms Demand Action, tweeted the airline when she watched girls being rejected from boarding a plane based on what they were wearing.
An exchanged between Watts and United’s Twitter page ensued and later came an explanation from the airline as to what happen and this business dress code they apparently have.
United is standing firm with their policy stating “leggings are not inappropriate attire except in the case of someone traveling as a pass rider.” That may be but many are not buying that to be a realistic policy as many flyers want to feel comfortable when they travel.
