How would you feel if an airline banned you for how you looked? According to two young women, they’ve been banned for life from flying Southwest Airlines. Sarah and Nisreen made national news when they were escorted off a plane because they say the airline had a problem with them because they were “young and decent-looking” and their flight attendants were “middle-aged.” Southwest denies treating the women unfairly because of their appearance and says the women used vulgar language, obscene gestures and aggressive behavior. Joining the conversation is Kyla, who says she was told by Southwest that her outfit was too skimpy, and two other passengers who say the airline booted them because they were women. Then, McKay is a 15-year-old on a mission to end cussing. He founded a No Cussing Club at his high school and wants to inspire others to stop swearing and examine the power of words. McKay’s campaign has even motivated his mayor to pass a proclamation for a No Cussing Week in his hometown. Don’t miss reactions from the teen’s family and classmates! If it’s happening now, Dr. Phil is going to deal with it now! Join the discussion.

crude language

The media and uncaring people are responsible for the horrible and offensive language our young people exhibit. Offensive language permeates the movies, and, subsequently, allowed on television broadcast.

Even a seemingly harmsless movie like "The Bucket List" offended me when God's name was degraded, and it was suppose to be funny? We are now to ask God to damm anything or anybody. The thought is even disgusting. The movie"Crash" was so offensive that I walked out. I t is shown on tv!!! Crude and offensive language is not necessary, anywhere, anytime.

03/14 Dr. Phil Now: Fly Girls

Nobody has the right to force others to listen to their vulgar language, and look at their body parts geared for the stimulation of a man. Our kids are being corrupted and exploited; they have not even a clue on how they are being perceived and basically being used. To dress up like a prostitute, and think that’s cool, is bordering insane. Dr. Phil you always talk about young people not having the proper ability/knowledge to discern what degrading behavior is, please help inform them.  Their looking for love in all the wrong places.

FLY GIRLS

I BELIEVE THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY THAN WHAT THE GIRLS ARE SAYING. I AM SURE SOUTHWEST HAS WITNESSES THAT WERE FLYING AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME. IF I HAD HEARD VULGAR LANGUAGE BY SOME YOUNG GIRLS I WOULD HAVE HAD THEM STOP, OR BE REMOVED. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THEIR CHOICE! HAD THEY STOPPED, THEN CONTINUED WHEN THE PLANE WAS IN FLIGHT, I WOULD HAVE ESCORTED THEM OFF THE PLANE WHEN WE LANDED AND NEVER TO ALLOW THEM TO FLY SOUTHWEST AGAIN.

Give Me a Break!

 

This is so ridiculous that these girls are getting more attention for doing something that was offensive to the general public to begin with.  I love the Dr. Phil show and will continue to watch as always, (except this portion of the show)  but this is such a major waste of good television time.   These ladies deserve NO national attention for this and only promotes the whiney, pitch a fit for everything  to get as much attention as I can, even if I am the one who caused the problem attitude of younger people today. And I am a younger person!    We have soooo much going on in the world right now,  there has to be more interesting people to talk with.  These girls really need to find a hobby or something to give a self-esteem boost rather than a rush from sitting on a stage.   I am looking forward to seeing  McKay's story as it sounds like this is a person who is actually contributing to society in a positive way.

good for the airline!!

Quote From: jeanierp

It certainly sounds as though this was an issue of behavior, and not appearance.  Had they been within earshot  I certainly would have asked to have them removed.  Kudos to Southwest for having enough consideration not to force the other 250 passengers to listen to theit foul language.
Sounds like these chickies have a sense of entitlement.  They state that they were removed because they were "young and decent looking". Do they think that based on their looks they can do whatever they want and act as offensive to others as they want?  I agree with you  "Kudos" to the airline for being considerate to the other 250 passngers and getting rid of these entitled  and obnoxious brats.

POLEESE

I know these type girls, ok they clearly need to GET OVER themselves. They are the Brittney Spears, Paris Hilton WANNA-BE's and I do not believe for one minute that they were kicked off the plane because they were "attractive". These type girls are rude trouble makers who use foul language and need attention. They will do ANYTHING to get people to notice them because their everyday lives are humdrum and they desperately want to make the headlines just as Paris, Lindsay and Brittney do. These girls should soak up their 5 minutes of fame because next week they won't even be remembered. And trust me girls these "middle" aged flight attendents are not jealous of you, they think you are fools and they are there to protect the other flyers and when you were acting inappropriate on the plane, they had no choice  but to take action. I don't  know why this generation of girls think that they are the end all, they need to get over themselves and become productive members of society and do something worthwhile in this life instead of glaring at the image looking back to them in the mirror. Its a shallow life and these girls are SHALLOW

lets get real, if young girls dress sexy and use bad language try adjusting your own minds and not let these thingsd become so important i cant beleive that the airlines should have a right to turn anyone away because of hoe they are dressed and bad lasnquage is only words get over it and also is this really worthy of a tv show who cares?
