Woman is kicked off a plane for the way she was dressed

I don't know if anyone else has caught this story yet, but it's just insane. A woman Kyla Ebbert was asked to leave a plane earlier this week, because her clothing was inappropriate. She was asked to change, and when she explained that she had nothing to change into, they made her wear a blanket over her legs to cover up. Now if you check out the story, you will see that she is in no way dressed inappropriately. She is wearing a mini-skirt, which is slightly above the knees, and her blouse isn't revealing anything. I personally think this is just a case of someone who is too insecure about there own looks trying to go off on some power trip. I mean yes the girl was very pretty, but I fail to see how she should have been embarrassed like she was. Any thoughts?

I'm pretty free spirited, and I personally wouldn't have cared if I was on that flight by the way she was dressed. But, they did not force her to use the blanket to cover herself, she requested it. And, the skirt wasn't slightly above the knees, it was just below her cheeks. I watched the video on MSNBC/Today show online, and when she sat back down, she let everyone see her white panties-I'm sure not purposely, but still, that pretty much shows it wasn't a knee length skirt. Just wondering if she was wearing them when she was on the plane? My guess, and this is pure speculation, when she sat down on the plane, I'd venture to say she was showing then also-again, not sure if she had panties on then or not, but that wouldn't be a very appropriate thing to have to witness on a flight, unless you're a guy :) And I would guess that's probably why the flight attendant said something to her. And, my opinion again, yes she was ok looking, had a great body, and I say if you got it, dress how you want-show it off. BUT, you deal with the reactions and such that goes along with it, whether positive or negative. If you don't want the attention, then dress more conservatively. Should the flight attendant have done that? Hard to say, like I said, wouldn't have bothered me, could care less either way. But, I will say, I'm glad SW is sticking up for their employee. Don't see too many companies like that anymore. They're all so quick to cave in to customers sometime.

I agree, the whole thing was ridiculous. I've seen a lot of women in public with a lot less on than that. I sure don't see how the way she was dressed could be called a safety issue, unless the pilot was so distracted he couldn't fly the plane! But then, shouldn't he be in the cockpit, anyway?
