Airlines should not be permitted to determine if their passengers are wearing appropriate clothing, because it has nothing to do with their stated purpose of flying people from one location to another. They should worry about flying the plane safely and not about what their passengers are wearing and the fact that they apparently are shows the sore of widespread Bronze Age barbaric mentality that permeates these types of organizations.

It is a disgusting thought that some power mad flight attendant has the power to remove people from flights for clothing related reasons. Certainly the fascist airlines that allow these types of abusive actions to occur need to be driven out of business while being forced to compensate their victims greatly.

The reality is, you simply can't do whatever you want on a plane. The cabin of an airplane is not your private living room. A little self-discipline goes a long way.

Yeah, maybe it's just a greyhound bus in the sky, and there *is* a Passenger Bill of Rights.

As with any cross-section of people, you might find a flight attendant who acts like an uptight jerk.
I've seen flight attendants dealing with ridiculous carry-on bags, helping a parent with an infant, assistant a passenger who was lapsing into a diabetic coma, or patiently responding to an unwatched child playing with the call button.

I've never seen a flight attendant acting like fashion police. I know this type of incident (and others) can happen. So if someone wants to be stinking drunk, overflow over their seat's armrests, show ample cleavage or whatever, he or she should read the Contract of Carriage (each airline has one) before ticketing.

I agree but even more so, because you are too soft on them.

Flight attendants cannot remove passengers - only the captain can.

US Airways contract of carriage:

3.1 REFUSAL TO TRANSPORT

6. Any passenger who may pose a threat to the comfort and/or safety of other passengers or employees
including (but not limited to) passengers who: Are over the age of five (5) and barefoot, or otherwise inappropriately clothed, unless required for medical reasons;

I'm sure other airlines have the same language...

I'm more offended by people wearing cologne, aftershave, and hair spray. If I shut my eyes, or bury my attention in a book or a movie, I don't have to look at some pock-marked teenybopper's butt crack or an out of shape out of work ex-waitress's saggy breasts flopping out of her pushup bra. But the only way to avoid heavy perfume fumes, is to stop breathing. That stuff gets in your lungs when you inhale through your mouth too, and they are -common- allergens and sensitivity triggers. Not to mention that some people smell really BAD when they pour the Poison on them. Don't they know this stuff is just like Raid on some people? Really - that's just nasty stank. Wash with soap and water, dab a little deodorant on your pits, and leave the scented shellac and cologne at home where you can offend your family instead, and not people stuck with you for several hours on a plane.

You know, when you first mentioned it I didn't understand the problem. But the idea that she was a waitress made me think, Yes, I know what you mean.

By the way, I often wear jeans and a t-shirt as well in my first class seat. And on a long haul, it's yoga pants and a t-shirt.
I agree. If I am going on a long flight and have a layover or layovers, I want to be able to jet from one gate to the next and be comfortable. It also depends on what time of the year it is. I also do not want to smell sandwiches with onions.

I believe in being comfortable but I also believe in being safe on the off chance that the plane crashes and I don't die upon impact. That means not wearing sandals or flip-flops (which I never wear anyway) jeans and never ever any synthetic fabrics.
