Leisha Hailey kicked off Southwest Airlines flight for kissing girlfriend
There's a special list for air travelers, and it's not the mile-high club. It's the "I've been booted from a Southwest Airlines flight" club. You could be removed for wearing Muslim headwear, crying over an ill parent, wearing saggy pants, or for being an overweight movie director. Or, in the case of an out star on Showtime's The L Word, kissing your girlfriend on a flight from BWI.
Here's the story, according to Leisha Hailey's Twitter account:
Southwest responded that her sexual orientation wasn't at issue, but how heavily Hailey was making out with her girlfriend:
Initial reports indicate that we received several passenger complaints characterizing the behavior as excessive. Our crew, responsible for the comfort of all Customers on board, approached the passengers based solely on behavior and not gender. The conversation escalated to a level that was better resolved on the ground, as opposed to in flight. We regret any circumstance where a passenger does not have a positive experience on Southwest and we are ready to work directly with the passengers involved to offer our heartfelt apologies for falling short of their expectations.
