Is it just us, or are dubiously clothed customers inexplicably attracted to US Airways? Just days before last week’s now-infamous “saggy pants” incident, the American airline had an encounter with another scantily clad passenger. The unidentified elderly man was spotted wearing skimpy women’s underwear and not much else on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Phoenix.
He did, however, attempt to make the outfit a bit more decent with a sports bra, sheer shrug, thigh-highs, and patent leather platform pumps. He apparently wasn’t averse to taking a picture, either, posing sassily with hands on hips for fellow passenger Jill Tarlow.
But here comes the strange part — though Tarlow’s pic reveals him at the gate in a blue underwear set, he was snapped claiming his luggage in polka-dotted hose, sparkly hot pants, strappy heels, and a cropped black tank that read “Tease” in sparkly silver script (most likely snagged from the Target pre-teen section).
And while purchasing his ticket and locating his seat, he was sporting a hot pink bra top and matching spandex boyshorts. How he changed three times in such a presumably short period is also a mystery. We don’t know about you, but we can barely get to Starbucks before our plane threatens to take off without us.
Though Tarlow and others on the flight complained, US Airways’ employees didn’t have a problem with his questionable attire. Company spokeswoman Valerie Wunder explained that as long as customers covered their private parts, they were allowed to fly. The airline claims Deshon Marman, the football player arrested last week for refusing to pull up his sagging pants, was exposing a private part, though they make no mention of which one.
