Southwest Airlines, once known for under-dressing its flight attendants, is being sued for booting an 'under-dressed' passenger. The passenger, Kyla Ebbert was asked to leave by a flight attendant. She refused.
Kyla was just an innocent Hooters waitress trying to get from San Diego to Tuscon. Her attire (shown) was a tight white shirt and short denim skirt.
ABC notes, "Kyla Ebbert, a blond, shapely 23-year-old San Diego coed who also works shifts at a Hooters restaurant, boarded the flight to Tucson, Ariz., on a one-day round-trip visit to an Arizona doctor's appointment. She had settled into her seat when a flight attendant confronted her about what was later described by the airline as 'revealing attire.'"
Ironically, Kyla Ebbert told the Today Show, "I was humiliated, I was embarrassed... I felt like everyone was staring." Interesting. If she really didn't like the attention, she probably wouldn't want to go on the Today Show.
The best part of the story is actually the juxtaposition of Kyla's attire with the old Southwest standard issue uniforms...
