Talk of a dress code for airline passengers this week prompted about 45 readers to sound off on our blog post Southwest shames another woman.

SWA and all others should make it clear in their boarding policies before choosing to randomly remove someone they believe inappropriately dressed.—Michelle.

This debate is not about the attire of these people...but that these employees thinking they have the right to since 9/11 too push people around about every little thing...on a flight on swa...I watched as an attendant walked up to an older lady who was a little overweight and without a word held up a belt extender with such a look of derision on her face..never said a word just held it there dangling and embarassed this poor lady. She, of course, didn't need it...that wasn't the point, this attendant just wanted to assert her authority.—Margaret.

Thanks Southwest!!! I will always fly Southwest if they keep this policy.— Carole.

If you don't like what you see, don't look! Why can't people just mind their own business?—Jen.
