DENVER, Colo. - United Airlines says regular-paying flyers are welcome to wear leggings aboard its flights, even though two teenage girls were barred by a gate agent from boarding a flight from Denver to Minneapolis Sunday because of their attire.
An airline spokesman said that the girls were traveling under an employee travel pass that includes a dress code.
The move sparked a wave of online criticism against United.
