Leggings cause a stir for United Airlines

An airline spokesman said that the girls were travelling on Sunday under an employee travel pass that includes a dress code.

United tweeted out its policy once criticism filtered in over the ban.

"... Delta has a relaxed dress code for pass riders, but that doesn't mean a sloppy appearance is acceptable".

United Airlines says it has a dress code for travelers flying on employees' travel passes. Normal, paying customers are allowed to wear leggings on flights.

U.S. carrier United Airlines has come in for criticism after it would not allow two girls to board a plane on Sunday because they were wearing leggings.

In an interview, Watts said that she first noticed the two girls in leggings as they were visibly upset after leaving the gate next to the one she was entering. Guerin said no gate staff had raised any issues with the girl or her family about her outfit, but she had changed anyway. "This behavior is sexist and sexualizes young girls".

Watts said she was waiting to board a plane to Mexico for a vacation when she overheard a female gate agent denying entry to a young girl wearing gray leggings and saying: "I don't make the rules".

Henry Harteveldt, founder of the San Francisco-based travel consultancy Atmosphere Research Group, told the paper that he doesn't expect this drama to affect travelers at all.

In an email to Revelist, Southwest Airlines spokeperson Thais Hanson confirmed that they have an "employee travel privilege policy". "Beyond that, as a passenger, you can wear pretty much anything that is socially acceptable".

"That what you were wearing for your vacation travel sent a message to someone that you were not appropriate, and that in order to participate in society, you are literally going to have to change".

If you choose to take advantage of this promotion, you are representing the airline and, in turn, should honor the dress card stated in the pass traveler policy.
