Is US Airways fair is their clothing policy?

Last week US Airways kicked off a 20-year-old University of New Mexico football player for having sagging pants.  The player, DeShon Marman, was in San Francisco to attend a funeral.  While boarding the plane to fly back to New Mexico he was surrounded by 3 US Airways employees who told him to pull his sagging pants up, when he refused the police were called who then arrested him.

Did you even know US Airways doesn't even have a "dress code policy?"  This means US Airways employees can pick and choose who they feel are dressed appropriately.   Now here's where it gets interesting:  on June 9th, 2011 a white man in Florida was allowed to board a US Airways flight to Phoenix wearing a disgusting looking outfit that consisted of blue panties and some weird ass top.    


Above you got the actual photo of the white guy at the airport taken by a passenger named Jill Tarlow on June 9th, 2011 in Florida.  To the right is DeShon Marman the football player who had his "pants on the ground, pants on the ground, looking like a fool with your pants on the ground."

So...is US Airways fair in their unofficial dress code policy?   It'd be hard to argue that the airline is being fair.  How about this for a cure:  How about EVERYBODY wear decent clothes while flying.  I don't like seeing ass at the airport unless it's Kim Kardashian.  But I do feel if they were going to allow this old guy freak to board then they should have allowed the football player to board.

UPDATE:   July 14th, 2011 - California prosecutors have decided not to file charges against the 20-year-old University of New Mexico football player who was booted off a US Airways flight in June in a dispute over his "saggy pants.


  1. I'd rather sit next to a saggy pair of pants than whatever "Jill" is sporting.

  2. Thank you for your analysis and sharing, from your article I learned more.monster energy hats
