I saw the story Monday morning, and didn't think much of it. But then everyone was talking about it, and it seemed like we could have fun with it, and it was easy to get behind. We're a sports brand, and come down clearly on the side that leggings are pants, and women of any age should be able to wear leggings any time they desire. As a company, we want to encourage women to wear what they want.feedback

If your flight is delayed, you might want to sip those drinks at the bar a little more slowly, because you need to understand that you could get to a point where if you're not really in control of what's going on, you might not get on the plane. If someone comes to the gate and they're clutching their chest, sweating, showing signs of a major medical event – heart attack, stroke, anything – [the flight crew is] going to very likely be very concerned about that.feedback

But our response following that, once we did have all of the facts, I think we reacted the right way with this.feedback

Shannon Watts

I don't get why that's the issue here. A dress code still shouldn't be gendered and sexist. To be clear, this was happening very publicly right here in the gate.feedback

Seth Kaplan

Twenty years ago most passengers no longer had to get dressed up just to fly, but pass riders still had to get dressed up.feedback

Seth Kaplan

As far as customers, it has all gotten less formal over the years and for pass riders it has gotten less formal in tandem, but they've always been more formal.feedback

Sara Nelson - Association of Flight Attendants

There is a policy for employee travel that includes a dress code out of respect for all of United's passengers. We believe this is the case of a communication breakdown and social media frenzy. As we say in transportation ... moving on.feedback

Flying was glamorous, it was expensive and so it was generally done by primarily businessmen. They flew on business and just as there was a dress code within the office when they were flying and representing their business they dressed accordingly. I think any critique of a dress code, and I think that critique is valid, is that it seems to set more stringent standards for women than it does for men. It's a complex problem. I am flying soon and I am looking for the most comfortable outfit I can find.feedback

Jonathan Guerin

Like most companies, we have a dress code that we ask employees and pass riders to follow. The passengers this morning were United pass riders and not in compliance with our dress code for company benefit travel. We regularly remind our employees that when they place a family member or friend on a flight for free as a standby passenger, they need to follow our dress code. To our regular customers, your leggings are welcome.feedback

Leggings are business attire for 10 year olds. Their business is being children. Why did dad board wearing shorts? Shorts are only business attire for Angus Young.feedback

Dana Schwartz

Ladies, when was the first time you were made to feel embarrassed and sexualised for what you wore? I was in 5th grade, shorts too short. It was the second to last day of school. Hot out. I was a beanpole, everything was short on me. They made me call my mum to bring pants.feedback

Jonathan Guerin

We would ask the same of pass riders who were wearing flip-flops or who were wearing clothing that revealed their undergarments or torn, tattered jeans.feedback

Shannon Watts

This United Airlines policy – whether intentional or not – is sexist and sexualizes young girls. As a woman and a mother, I was uncomfortable and angered by what unfolded at the Denver airport. I saw young girls confronted head-on with the disturbing reality that everyone – even an airline gate agent – is scrutinizing your body at all times. That what you were wearing for your vacation travel sent a message to someone that you were not appropriate, and that in order to participate in society, you are literally going to have to change. Even if you're only 10 years old.feedback

Jonathan Guerin

Male or female, those rules apply to every pass rider. That's an assumption you're making, right? They are guidelines that apply to everyone. All of this applies only to our employees and their selected pass travelers. This does not apply to our regular, paying customers.feedback

Shannon Watts

Two other girls were [also] turned away. A @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. Since when does @united police women's clothing? Gate agent for flight 215 at 7:55. Said she doesn't make the rules, just follows them. I guess @united not letting women wear athletic wear? They just boarded after being forced to change or put dresses on over the top of their clothing. Is this your policy?feedback

Jonathan Guerin

It's not that we want our standby travellers to come in wearing a suit and tie or that sort of thing. We want people to be comfortable when they travel as long as it's neat and in good taste for that environment. Were not in compliance with our dress code policy for company benefit travel. Our regular passengers are not going to be denied boarding because they are wearing leggings or yoga pants. But when flying as a pass traveller, we require pass travellers to follow rules, and that is one of those rules.feedback

Shannon Watts

This behaviour is sexist and sexualizes young girls. Not to mention that the families were mortified and inconvenienced. As the mother of 4 daughters who live and travel in yoga pants, I'd like to know how many boys @United has penalized for the same reason. Their father, who was allowed to board with no issue, was wearing shorts.feedback

Jonathan Guerin

When traveling as a United pass traveler, we always remind our family and friends there are rules we all need to follow. We remind them that they are representing United Airlines.feedback

Andy Richter

I have flown numerous times while displaying an egregious mooseknuckle. What's a male over 10 have to do to get noticed?feedback

Sarah Silverman

I fly a LOT. About to go on tour all April and changing all my @united flights to other airlines.feedback

Patricia Arquette

Why aren't you allowing girls to wear leggings on flights? Who is your gate agent policing girls clothing? Was there something's strange about all these girls leggings? Do U understand U have just made at least half UR customers very unhappy?feedback

Shannon Watts

She's forcing them to change or put dresses on over leggings or they can't board. Since when does United police women's clothing? Their father, who was allowed to board with no issue, was wearing shorts.feedback

Chrissy Teigen

I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf. Honestly I don't really care. If I have an issue with a company, I stop giving them money. Like d&g. Easy peasy.feedback

Shannon Watts

A girl who was wearing grey leggings, not too tight, pulled a dress from her backpack and put it over her leggings and was allowed to board. But two other girls were turned away because they didn't have any other clothing, I have five kids: four of them are women. They wear yoga pants all of the time when flying. I think this policy is arbitrary and sexist. It singles out women for their clothing and sexualizes little girls.feedback

Shannon Watts

[They] were turned away. [The agent] said she doesn't make the rules, she only follows them. This behavior is sexist and sexualizes young girls. Not to mention that the families were mortified and inconvenienced. I've got four daughters of my own.feedback
