You may have heard that United airlines is under fire a little bit after a gate agent refused to allow three girls to board a flight from Denver, CO to Minneapolis on Sunday because they were wearing leggings.
1) A @united gate agent isn't letting girls in leggings get on flight from Denver to Minneapolis because spandex is not allowed?— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) March 26, 2017
2) She's forcing them to change or put dresses on over leggings or they can't board. Since when does @united police women's clothing?— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) March 26, 2017
According to Huffington Post, "The airline first responded saying it has the right to turn away passengers who aren’t properly clothed, but eventually clarified that the young women in question were subject to a more strict dress code because of the type of tickets they were holding."
