US Airways Lets Man in Women's Underwear Fly

Days after a San Francisco International Airport baggy pants arrest, US Airways allowed a man wearing skimpy women's panties, mid-thigh stockings and high heels to fly.

Passenger Jill Tarlow snapped a photograph of the scantily clad man on the June 9 flight from Florida to Phoenix and provided it to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Tarlow says she and other passengers complained to airline employees before boarding but they were ignored.

US Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder says employees had been correct not to ask the man to cover himself, saying the airline doesn't have a dress code policy.

"We don't have a dress code policy," Wunder said. "Obviously, if their private parts are exposed, that's not appropriate. ... So if they're not exposing their private parts, they're allowed to fly."

On June 15, University of New Mexico football player Deshon Marman was yanked from a US Airways flight and arrested for allegedly refusing to pull up his sagging pajama pants.
