How two teens in leggings became a PR mess for United Airlines

The girls were fine with the policy, Guerin says, but a traveler named Shannon Watts who overheard the exchange took offense.
United’s Guerin conceded that the airline could have done a better job of getting the facts out early.
United may have limited any damage to its image if it reacted more quickly to the tweets and explained its policy on the free passes, Terry said.
“A dress code still shouldn’t be gendered and sexist.
Watts, in a phone interview on Monday, conceded that she did not initially realize that the girls were using passes that entailed following a dress code.

“The passengers [Sunday] morning were United pass riders and not in compliance with our dress code for company benefit travel.
In fact, The New York Daily News pointed out that other airlines have similar dress code policies in place — Delta actually bans “excessively dirty” or “vulgar” clothing.
The company has been defending its passenger dress code policy from criticism on Twitter since a high-profile Twitter user shared that the girls’ spandex was at issue.
