A Spirit Airlines passenger must have been in a hurry to make her flight at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) because she showed up to the check-in counter in her bathing suit (and possibly without the bottom half) or hiked up mini dress.
Spirit Airlines, like most carriers, outlines what can be worn on a plane in its contract of carriage (the terms you agree to when purchasing an airline ticket). The carrier’s states:
A guest shall not be permitted to board the aircraft or may be required to leave an aircraft if that guest is barefoot or inadequately clothed, or whose clothing is lewd, obscene, or offensive in nature.”
I am far from conservative and generally take a “live and let live” attitude, but this is not appropriate. It also grosses me out that her bare butt will be touching the seat where someone else will have to sit in the future since we know how well airlines clean planes.
While not as revealing as the recent incident involving a man walking naked through Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) (more here), this did make me think of a woman I encountered a few years ago.
Around Thanksgiving 2019, a woman was walking through Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) in a see-through, mesh bodysuit without a bra or panties on. Parents pulled their children away, but she was quite oblivious to the stir her clothing was causing.
Anthony’s Take: While you don’t have to break out the formalwear to fly, some clothing (and not bathing suits or just underwear) is definitely necessary. You have to wonder what makes people think this is okay.
