Which airline is most likely to give passengers the boot — given that it has already booted 9 passengers, sometimes for highly debatable reasons? It’s….THIS ONE.
I got that right without a second’s hesitation. They’re based in Texas, so that explains why they this way.
I don’t know about many of the stories and they were written in a way that I would agree with the individuals. I also know that where there is smoke, there is fire, and when one airline sticks out for behavior such as this then there is a legitimate reason.
The large-breasted woman’s clothes seemed fine to me. Yes cleavage was low…. but I see that all the time in public.
And then claiming to be a family airline while allowing the man in front of her to wear an actual condom in a plastic cover on his T-shirt is a bit too much. Besides I though the family first crowd was against birth control.
As far as the Muslim woman not being allowed back on the plane because the flight crew was “uncomfortable”…. I suspect the flight crew was uncomfortable admitting they made a mistake in profiling the woman and no doubt they would have been uncomfortable.
Southwest does have the right to set standards and the public can fly whoever they want to if they don’t like Southwest. Personally I won’t fly Southwest again. What if I want to give my boyfriend a quick kiss? (Probably not going to happen but if he surprises me with something then I just might spontaneously kiss him to say thanks). Or hold his hand during the flight, which is something I would do? Rather than worry if my hand-holding will get us kicked off the flight I’ll fly a different airline.
