Default Fishermen are such troublemakers!

TAMPA, Florida (AP) -- Southwest Airlines said it will apologize to a passenger who was told he would be removed from a flight if he didn't change clothes, the second time in recent months the budget carrier has been forced to do so.

Joe Winiecki, of Largo, Florida, boarded a Southwest flight in Columbus, Ohio, wearing a fictional fishing shop T-shirt which featured the words, "Master Baiter."

Winiecki, who was traveling home, said he was in his seat when an employee told him he had to change his T-shirt, turn it inside out, or get off the plane.

Winiecki protested that the airline was infringing on his right to free speech, but changed his shirt fearing he would miss the flight and a day's work.


The airline apologized this summer after a college student wearing a denim miniskirt and a sweater over a tank top was told to change her outfit or get off a flight departing from San Diego.

Kyla Ebbert, who was 23, told the story on "The Dr. Phil Show." She was read a printed apology from Southwest Chief Executive Gary Kelly on the show.

Ebbert was allowed to fly after agreeing to alter her outfit. The airline offered Ebbert free tickets and tried to make light of the mix-up in humorous advertising.

Ebbert declined the tickets.

After the Ebbert encounter, Southwest President Colleen Barrett sent employees a generally worded e-mail reminding them that the airline has no dress code, Mainz said.

Southwest, like other airlines, has language in its contract of carriage that states it reserves the right to deny service to customers whose clothing is "lewd, obscene or patently offensive."

Airline officials have discussed giving employees more specific examples of what is considered lewd or offensive, Mainz said.

There's a shop in Ft Myers called Master Baiter-not fictional...

I think the airlines should spend more time worrying about the huge fat slobs that slop into the other passengers seats than what certain customers are wearing.

Coach? Who cares what happens in the steerage section. The only time I visit that hell hole is when I have a severe case of diarrhea and I don't want to offend the sensibilities of my traveling comrades. We do have standards in the front of the plane.

Hey, you may have your standards up front, but we get the barely dressed Hooters girls. Don't worry, we'll close the curtains so you can't see them.

If they really wanted to save time and effort in those long airport security screening lines,they should just make it a rule that everybody flies nude. I bet theres almost a zero chance of being hijacked or blown up by a naked terrorist.

(I said blown UP, Adam....dont get excited.)

I disagree. Fishermen are not troublemakers. They fukked with him first. That's the thing about fisherment, don't fukk with em and they won't fukk with you, and when you do fukk with them it usually makes the front page.

Elitism mandates a strict adherence to pompous ceremony and out-dated traditions....hate the game , not the player.

Don't get me wrong, I think every plane needs some pedestrians. The best part of the steerage class is when they fall for the classic "Aisle Chumming".

Aisle Chumming involves taking over-cooked lobster tails and cutting them into little cubes. We tie some fluorocarbon line to the chunks and hold the tag ends. The chunks are gathered in a croissant basket and tossed behind the curtain. As the cattle in the aft cabin dive into the aisle trying to grab the lobster, we rapidly pull the pieces back into 1st. It is a friggin riot watching those starving fools get pepper sprayed by the cocktail waitr...I mean flight attendants.....as they rush our opulent abode.
