United Airlines became embroiled in a public relations mess Monday when its dress code policy came under fire.
The issue began when two teens traveling stand-by on employee family discounts were denied entrance to the plane due to wearing leggings which are classified as pajamas by the airlines’ dress policy.
A nearby passenger, who has since admitted that she didn’t understand all of the parameters of the girls’ travel requirements under the family of employees status, kicked off a social media firestorm citing discrimination.
The girls, ironically, were fine when told of the requirement which prohibits sleep or swimwear, torn clothing, and revealing attire.
