Too much cleavage to fly on a Southwest?

picture of the offending cleavage at the link below

A Southwest Airlines passenger on a flight from Las Vegas to New York was told she had to get off the plane for inappropriate cleavage. She refused. After the flight, she reached out to the website Jezebel to help get her story out. She got herself a refund and an apology.

She boarded a flight from Las Vegas to New York early June 5 and said she did not button up because, she told Jezebel: “I didn’t want to let the representative’s Big Feelings about my breasts change the way I intended to board my flight,” she explained. “And lo and behold, the plane didn’t fall out of the sky…my cleavage did not interfere with the plane’s ability to function properly.”

Southwest spokesperson Christi McNeill told us that the company offered Avital an apology and a refund “as a gesture of goodwill,” but that their Contract of Carriageallows them to refuse to transport a customer whose clothing is lewd, obscene, or patently offensive.

I don't think that the stewardesses had their priorities straight.

3. She refused and they let her fly anyway?

I'm surprised they didn't call the police to taser her.

4. Airline ads in the '70s used to show more cleavage.

Don't tell me we're not in the midst of a Cultural "Contraction." Just another bursting bubble, I guess.

5. It probably makes sense to wear as little as possible these days when flying

 

just less stuff to strip off when you are randomly selected.

Kind of the opposite approach to strip poker.

7. WTF?

You can see way more than that on any street in any city.
She wasn't doing a Janet Jackson so what is Southwest's problem?

8. What numbnut made the decision it was too much cleavage?

More than 50% of her breasts are covered. Whoever made that decision should be fired for being a prude.

10. I worked at the US departure section of the Montreal Airport. Lost of people leaving on trips to the

South for the winter. People all dressed up. Cleavage everywhere.
