Southwest Airlines Tries to Stop Woman From Boarding Because of Her Cleavage

A woman only identified as 'Avital' was initially denied boarding on a Southwest Airlines' flight because her cleavage was "inappropriate," according to a ticket agent.

According to, Avital tried to board a flight from Las Vegas to New York on June 5, when a Southwest Airlines' employee told her to cover her breasts if she wanted to fly.

Avital told that she did not cover her breasts and boarded anyways: "I didn't want to let the representative's gig feelings about my breasts change the way I intended to board my flight. And lo and behold, the plane didn't fall out of the sky... my cleavage did not interfere with the plane's ability to function properly."

Avital added: "The guy sitting in front of me on the plane was wearing a shirt with an actual Trojan condom embedded behind a clear plastic applique and had no trouble getting on his flight."

Southwest Airlines has reportedly apologized to Avital.

Southwest Airlines policy allows ticket agents to refuse passengers they feel are dressed inappropriately, according to a Southwest Airlines spokesperson.
