The three teens were traveling on a United Airlines employee pass. The airline said it has a no-leggings policy for employees using their benefits to fly. A spokesman for United Airlines contacted by The Washington Post told the paper that the girls in question were “not in compliance with our dress code policy for company benefit travel.”
The spokesman says leggings are prohibited clothing for those flyers using the employee travel benefit, but did not clarify further.
