Man Kicked Off Spirit Airlines Flight Over Saggy Pants
No one really knows why the saggy pants trend won’t go away, but what we do know is that the trend has gotten a lot of young men in a lot of trouble. There are health related issues, such as hip damage, cities have passed laws forbidding saggy pants, and one judge even sentenced a man to jail for wearing saggy pants to court. So it comes as no surprise that saggy pants can now result in you being removed from a flight.
A man was kicked off a Spirit Airlines flight after he began verbally abusing flight attendants who asked him to pull up his sagging pants.
The Chicago Tribune reports:
The man and the woman he was traveling with Sunday morning threatened physical harm to flight attendants who had asked him to pull up his pants, which were “excessively low,” hanging below his buttocks, Spirit spokeswoman Misty Pinson said. The man was boarding the Orlando, Fla.-bound plane when flight attendants spoke to him, she said.
Crew members may ask customers to comply with various requests if they are in “the best interest” of the other customers, Pinson said.
The man probably should’ve pulled up his pants before he left home, but that goes without saying. Spirit’s code requires that customers wear “adequate” clothing and shoes.
When the police arrived, the two passengers grabbed their bags and exited the plane. The couple was booked on another Spirit flight.
After all is said and done, one wonders if the couple actually believes that it was all worth it. Was a fight over sagging pants worth missing your original flight? Or embarrassing yourselves on a flight? It just seems that it would’ve been much easier to pull your pants up than to curse at flight attendants. Some people just make things harder on themselves than they have to be.
