So United Airlines has a policy that doesn’t allow women to wear leggings aboard their aircraft.
Activist Shannon Watts started an online protest when she twitted that United were refusing to let passengers wearing legging get on-board.
“@united gate agent isn’t letting girls in leggings get on flight from Denver to Minneapolis because spandex is not allowed?”

“She’s forcing them to change or put dresses on over leggings or they can’t board,” she tweeted. “Since when does @united police women’s clothing?”
Well, United responded by saying that the company “shall have the right to refuse passengers who are not properly clothed via our Contract of Carriage.”
Apparently the affected passengers were travelling with a United employee pass and the company has a dress code policy that sees leggings as improper clothing.
Are leggings improper clothing Well, in my opinion, it depends on how you wear it. What do you think?
