US Airways Dress Code for Men: No saggy pants, women's lingerie okay.

Example of US Airways approved attire.
As the summer vacation season shifts into high gear, there are a few things you need to remember before you head to the airport. Along with the usual invasive security scans, enhanced pat downs and restrictions on what you can or can't pack in your carry-on bags, you must comply with the Airline's passenger dress code. Non-compliance may result in your arrest.

The problem is, it's not always clear what constitutes a violation. MSNBC Reports:

US Airways has acknowledged that less than a week before having a college student arrested for allegedly refusing to hike up his saggy pants while boarding, the airline allowed a man wearing little more than women’s underwear, black thigh-high stockings and heels to fly.

On June 16, University of New Mexico football player Deshon Marman was removed from a US Airways flight at San Francisco International Airport and arrested for refusing to follow crew members’ requests to hike up his saggy pants.
At the time, an airline spokesperson said that while the airline “does not have a specific dress code …we do ask that our passengers dress in an appropriate manner to ensure the safety and comfort of all of our passengers.”
Now there are reports — and a photo published in the San Francisco Chronicle —showing that six days before the saggy-pants incident, the airline allowed a man to board a flight in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., wearing an outfit that consisted, mostly, of women’s underwear and a short, see-through, cover-up shirt.
A spokesperson for the airline told MSNBC that passengers can wear whatever they want, as long as the naughty bits are covered. This is good news for all you drag queens and leather daddies heading to New York for pride this weekend.
