Saudi Airlines: Dress Appropriately or Be Removed

Saudi Airlines: Dress Appropriately or Be Removed
Jesse Tabit

Saudi Airlines’ dress code policy, which requests its flyers to not be “clothed in a manner that would cause discomfort or offense to other passengers”, is being scrutinized on social media. With the hashtag #SaudiaAirlines, Twitter had various responses to the guidelines, which include the following:

  • “Women exposing legs or arms; or wearing too thin; or too tight clothes.”
  • “Men wearing shorts exposing legs.”

“Note: SAUDIA may refuse to transport passengers, or may remove passengers from the flight at any point for not complying with its dress code.”

    I consider a burkha to be “clothed in a manner that would cause discomfort or offense” to me

    Will they remove someone wearing it?

    “Note: SAUDIA may refuse to transport passengers, or may remove passengers from the flight *at any point* for not complying with its dress code.”

    Can you imagine being removed from the flight at 35,000 feet?

    My motivations are probably different from Saudi Airlines’, but the world could certainly stand a little decorum in airline travel. Any of you old enough to remember when everybody got dressed up to travel? Then again, we did not have to strip down to our undies to pass security, so I understand that it may be easier to wear shorts and flip flops…

    If you don’t like the rule, simply don’t fly them. It is their aircraft, their rules. Stop all this politically correct nonsense that anyone can dress any way they personally like. Societies have to have rules, otherwise anarchy sets in.

    The only request of #SaudiaAirlines is to make it very clear through heightened publicity what the rules are on this policy, both before buying a ticket and through the whole process of flying with them. In that way there can be no comeback by ‘offended’ customers.
