Woman Fights For Her Right To Fly Pantsless

A New York woman, accused of not wearing panties on a JetBlue flight, is suing the airline for assault, battery, and emotional distress. Twenty-seven-year-old financial consultant Malinda Knowles (pictured left), claims that a JetBlue supervisor requested to see her panties — or lack thereof — on a flight to Florida. “I didn’t want to show him anything. He wanted me to basically show him my crotch. I was completely humiliated. It was vulgar. It was macho. It was rude,” she said of the incident. She refused to prove she was wearing bottoms, which incidentally, she was. She was escorted off the plane and made to show the denim short shorts that were hidden underneath the her baggy t-shirt. After proving that she was acceptably pantsless as is the fashion these days, the supervisor would not allow her back on board saying that the captain refused to fly her. [NY Daily News]

I understand the airline has a dress code to abide by, but this sounds inappropriate and way out of line. What do you think? Does she have a case here? Share your thoughts in the comments. Keep reading »

Some see Slater as a working man’s hero, standing up for all the little guys that have to put up with people’s whining everyday; others are pinning Slater as the baby, saying that he overreacted and put people in danger. Regardless, Slater is a free man for now, having posted his $2,500 bail. [ABC]
