Comments

    The "leggings" brouhaha was not because they were passengers, apparently but:

    ...the girls were travelling using a United employee pass and "were not in compliance with our dress code policy for company benefit travel".

    If the airline has a more stringent dress code for employee benefit users then that seems fair enough.

      That's right they were on an employee pass.
      Also on facebook people were asking for the picture to be posted. moments later it was removed by facebook for nudity :p so there's clearly something to this. And if i'm being honest i really don't want to see your 10 year old daughters ass. and i agree women and men should be able to wear whatever they like but I don't think a 10 year old girl at that age can fully comprehend what she is portraying herself as.
