Is this flight attendant dressed appropriately to go to work? Apparently not, according to Southwest Airlines. Kyla Ebbert took her case to the court of public opinion by making an exclusive *cough* appearance on the Today show. (MSNBC)
It was a lot more clothing than the 23-year-old college student wears on her job as a Hooters waitress. Her mother, Michele Ebbert, said she would have told her daughter if the outfit was inappropriate.This is too funny for me. A "family airline?" The term family is used in so many contexts that even I don't know what it means anymore. But, you be the judge. I know employers can interpret their company policies however they want. But, for what this person was allegedly wearing above to be a flight attendant? C'mon, gimme a break....
“But her outfit is fine, Michele Ebbert told TODAY co-host Matt Lauer. “She looks like every other college girl in San Diego.”
Not according to a Southwest employee identified only as “Keith,” who approached Ebbert after she had taken her seat on the plane and was listening to the flight attendants go through their pre-departure routine.
“He told me, ‘I’m sorry, but you’re going to have to take a later flight. You’re dressed inappropriately. This is a family airline. You’re dressed too provocative to fly on this flight,’ ” she told Lauer.
