United Airlines Bar Two Girls From Flying Because They Wore Leggings

United Airlines are in the news, after their gate agent barred two girls from boarding a flight on Sunday morning because they wore leggings.

One of the girls was forced to change before she was allowed to board the flight from Denver to Minneapolis, Shannon Watts, founder of anti-gun violence organisation said.

“She’s forcing them to change or put dresses on over leggings or they can’t board,” Shannon Watts, who was at a gate at Denver International Airport, said on Twitter. “Since when does @united police women’s clothing?”

United in response to the tweets about the incident said:
“United shall have the right to refuse passengers who are not properly clothed via our Contract of Carriage.” And added, “This is left to the discretion of the agents.”

The airline’s passenger contract says for the safety of all passengers and crew members, the airline can refuse to let a passenger board if the passenger is “barefoot or not properly clothed.”
How does not being "properly dressed" affect the safety of passengers aboard a flight? Answers anyone?
