    Interesting… A little change from their policy of requesting people to dress more “decently” because they are a “family airline”…

    In response to Arik, it’s their call. That was around a year and a half ago, and times have changed since then. Maybe they have new management, or maybe the fact that they’re getting paid by SI helped a little. At any rate, I think their intention is harmless and if someone doesn’t like it, they don’t have to look. But seriously, this is normal beach attire. It’s not remotely “porn” as some have been claiming.

    But if you think I’m taking it too lightly, there’s always Newsy.com to provide the balanced story.
