CNBC reports that two passengers who were asked to adjust their clothing on U.S. air carriers told their stories to sympathetic bloggers, leading to a viral debate of proper air travel attire.
Specifically, a woman flying from Las Vegas was told by a Southwest employee to cover up her cleavage, an action we’ve never seen happen in any beer commercial involving flying on airplanes.
Another woman received a “lecture” from an American Airlines Pilot for wearing a T-shirt with a four-lettered word.
3 More T-Shirt Ideas That May Lead To A Lecture From A Flight Crew
1. A T-shirt that says “My parents went to San Diego, and all they brought me back was a lousy T-Shirt, but not this one, because their baggage got lost by this airline on the flight back.”
2. A T-shirt with an image of sweatpants. While, of course, wearing sweatpants. You might not get a lecture on offensiveness, but rather lack of originality of your inflight fashion choice.
3. A T-shirt explaining your favorite airline’s frequent flier program rules and blackout restrictions. No need to depress co-passengers with a reminder of how difficult it can be to redeem these things. Although, it would be ironic if the blackout restrictions included restrictions on when you could wear such a T-shirt.
