Girls argue they're "too beautiful" for Southwest

Are These Girls Too Beautiful to Fly?

Southwest Airlines has recently been in hot water for demanding that its female passengers dress a certain way, and now two 18-year-olds claim that they, too, were discriminated against. Nisreen Swedberg and Sarah Williams had a heated argument with another passenger — apparently someone was taking too long in the loo— and their behavior was enough that Southwest escorted them off the plane when they landed in LA.

But the girls complain that they were treated differently (and skipped during the beverage service) because they're beautiful. “[The flight attendants] were, like, older ladies," Williams said. "We were younger. Who knows, they could have been just jealous of us because we were younger.”

What do you think? Were these girls treated poorly because of their looks, or are they full of hot air?

breakbrookly, you've put it brilliantly. I can name quite a few very pretty girls that I know who don't have a big ego, partly because they're just not arrogant, and partly because in this society, if you're blond, thin and preferably blue-eyed, you count as more beautiful than others. Even if their facial features are either bad or really average, they think no end of themselves.

These girls need to get over themselves. I don't doubt for a second that they were rotten brats on the plane and that's why they got treated bad.

to be fair, these girls only think they're so attractive b/c guys try to get into their pants. i mean the blonde chick is blonde and our society treats blondes as if they are attractive by default of being blonde. and the brunette obviously dresses in a way that calls attention to herself and she thinks the attention is b/c she's so pretty. yes, they're conceited but there are reasons for this, they didn't just pop out of their mothers' bellies with the idea that they were beautiful. it's sad that they have such big egos but someone/something must have given it to them. oh yeah and this whole "i was discriminated against b/c i'm attractive" thing needs to stop. it's getting tired

I truly do not know which is worse - this story or Kitson's implication that chubby gals cannot be hot.

so i've been flying on planes since i was thirteen at least twice a year alone. and nothing like this has ever happened. it's probably an isolated situation, and who can tell if it was true.

These girls are LAME. They are going to be so embarrassed in a few years when they grow up and realize that they made fools of themselves.

You know the brunette was just asking for a bottle of water, like she was in business class or something (and the only reason I say that is because I know they give bottles in business class before everyone else boards not because business class people have a right to be snooty)... AND she's making a big deal about WATER! I can only imagine sitting remotely close to the bathrooms and having some bratty girl yelling at the bathroom... wow.

:ROTFL: Yeah, YOU WISH you were "too pretty"! Only people with really low self esteem would be so desperate as to say something like that. If you are amazing, other people will tell you...you don't have to compliment yourself!

Anyone who uses "like" in a quoted interview loses all credibility with me. :)
