23 year old college student and Hooter's waitress Kyla Ebbert was asked to leave a Southwest Airlines flight and change her "revealing" attire. I saw the picture on-line.........she had on high heel sandals, a denim mini-skirt, and a turqoise sweater over a tanktop over a bra. She was covered up. A customer service representative of Southwest sequestered her after she was already seated on the plane and asked her to go home and change before flying. She refused and was allowed to take the flight. Now she is considering a lawsuit.

YOU GO GIRL!! Just more evidence that we have deteriorated backwards into Puritanism.

A lawsuit? For what? She was not ultimately ejected from the plane. Everybody thinks the slightest misstatement these days is a payday. And why am I never seated next to someone like this?

Brock: As far as I'm concerned, this is damn well worthy of a lawsuit. It's no different than if I (a male) wore some levi shorts, sandals and a tanktop onto a plane and was asked to leave. (That's actually less than she was wearing; can you imagine them stopping a man for this?). That would cause me some mental stress and I would consider it blatant discrimination, as I'm sure this girl and her Mother do.

Yes I could see it happening to a man, but even if not, being only initially asked to leave should not cause compensable emotional distress( your mental stress) to a reasonable person. So she thought for a while she might miss her flight; that has happened to me a bunch and no ill effects. And come on, we all know in most situations, she gets extraordinary service. She suffered no damages.

She's a bit overdressed. I think that outfit would be more becoming without the white t-shirt.

Can't say if she was or not.

But Matt Lauer, who was sitting across from her, mentioned that she wasn't a real blonde.

Don't they normally have uniforms to wear? I agree it is not appropriate, think about it, if she had to bend over to help anybody buckle their seat belt, well, nuff said.

If I saw a guy dressed like that on a plane I asked him/her to get off to.

'Too sexy for Southwest' passenger poses nude for Playboy

By DAVID KOENIG
Associated Press
Published on: 11/15/07

DALLAS A 23-year-old college student who was told by a Southwest Airlines employee that her outfit was too revealing to fly is wearing even less on Playboy's Web site.

Kyla Ebbert appears in a series of pictures some in lingerie, some nude under the heading, "Legs in the Air."

"They're very tastefully done," Ebbert told The Associated Press on Thursday. "I don't see anything wrong with the female body."

Playboy contacted Ebbert's attorney to pitch the idea of posing. After "a little bit of talking" to convince her mother, Ebbert agreed. She said her boyfriend supported her decision, but "the most hesitant one was my dad."

On its Web site, Playboy says Ebbert "was too sexy for Southwest Airlines, but she's perfect for Playboy."

Ebbert said she was paid "less than six figures" to pose, but wouldn't give the specific amount.

A Southwest Airlines Co. employee pulled Ebbert off a flight this summer and forced her to adjust her outfit of a tank top, sweater and miniskirt before getting back on the plane.

Ebbert ripped the airline in appearances on NBC's "The Today Show" and "The Dr. Phil Show," during which she wore the outfit. Southwest officials said they don't have a dress code but don't want customers' attire to offend other passengers.

Ebbert said she was offended that Southwest tried to turn the dustup to its advantage by promoting a fare sale in honor of miniskirts. Southwest apologized to Ebbert, but she said she found the double-entendre-laced message unacceptable.

"They used my name in an ad campaign without asking permission," she said. "I thought I'd been slapped in the face."

Told of Ebbert's spread on the Playboy Web site, Southwest spokeswoman Beth Harbin said, "We wish her all the best."

Ebbert worked at a Hooters in San Diego but said wants to become an attorney, and doesn't think posing nude should get in the way of her professional aspirations.

"This was beautiful and classy. I don't see why it would affect a professional position," she said. "I'd do it again in a heartbeat."

I go through this all the time being a hot male. It really doesn't matter what I wear, it just looks so hot on me. I'm asked to leave places ALL the time.
