United airlines barred two girls for wearing leggings

Vastavam Web: A United Airlines had demanded two girls from the flight for wearing leggings. Another girl who was wearing gray leggings had to change before she was allowed to board the flight from Denver to Minneapolis, a witness said. This incident had created sensation in social media and thousands of people responded against the airlines. But the airlines says that they have right to allow or not based on the dress they wear while boarding their flight.

She’s forcing them to change or put dresses on over leggings or they can’t board,” Shannon Watts, who was at a gate at Denver International Airport, said on Twitter. “Since when does @united police women’s clothing?” United, responding to tweets about the incident tweeted that “United shall have the right to refuse passengers who are not properly clothed via our Contract of Carriage.” And added, ” This is left to the discretion of the agents.”The airline’s passenger contract says for the safety of all passengers and crew members, the airline can refuse to let a passenger on board if the passengers is “barefoot or not properly clothed.” The airlines, however, does not define “properly clothed.”

Social media exploded Sunday with users called the incident horrendous, outrageous and a nonsense. Several users asked why leggings aren’t proper clothing and promised to take their business — and leggings — to another airline. Many women wear leggings, yoga and athletic gear for comfort while traveling.
