|"Come Fly With Me, Come Fly Way Up|
To The Sky!"
The airline stated that since his private parts weren't showing he was not in violation of the rules and so other passenger complaints about the man went unheeded.
This is a terrible culture in which to raise children...how would a parent explain the man's behavior to his kids?
US Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder confirmed she'd received the photo [on the left] before last week's incident in San Francisco and had spoken to [Jill] Tarlow [the passenger who took the photo], but said employees had been correct not to ask the man to cover himself.The airline may have trouble reconciling that position in a potential lawsuit against it by a college football player, Deshon Marman, who was ejected from a US Airways flight after refusing to pull up his sagging pajama pants. The only thing that was exposed by his refusal was his boxer shorts. Since Marman is black, he is exempt from any societal rules, polite behavior or good taste, and should not have been asked to pull up his pants. No doubt he will file and win a lawsuit and force the airline to pay millions of dollars for racism.
"We don't have a dress code policy," Wunder said. "Obviously, if their private parts are exposed, that's not appropriate. ... So if they're not exposing their private parts, they're allowed to fly."
The gay guy in drag, however, will undoubtedly recommend US Airways to all of his flamer-friends. US Airways needs to seriously reconsider its dress code for passengers, and introduce some consistency as well. Perhaps "no under garments showing" might be added to the code; that would have covered both of these incidents.
