Employee pass, and "buddy pass" travel has a dress code... Not being told about it isn't the fault of the airline, it's the fault of the employee.. Do first class passengers wear shorts, hoodies, sandals Sure, but they paid for the ticket. Was the buddy pass free? I doubt it. Was it what the people in F paid? Not even close.

As a former Non rev traveler, there has always been a dress code for this type of travel, at one time we had to always wear a suit and tie for first class travel, that was changed to Buiness casual not jeans ever or we wouldn't be boarded. You are traveling on a free ticket doesn't matter if it's a budddy pass or not you didn't pay the revenue amount for first class - this has nothing to do with race - if they were not informed of this that's the employess fault and the gate agent did the correct thing. Even our parents had to dress for first - People need to stop always playing the race card when they don't like the correct answers --

They were denied seats in first class until they complied with dress code requirements for all NON-revenue pass-riders, non-employees using heavily discounted employee travel priviliges. And they were allowed to sit in FC once they complied, where they might have flown in coach, or been denied passage completely. Pity the hapless employee who will now face job consequences for the conduct of these two ignoramuses.

I am suing US Airways for racial discrimination because their employee called me whitey. Negros keep pushing the envelope. Get those hood negros off the planes. We need segregation again because most "whitey's" don't like sitting next to hood negros.

It's about time we get a segregated airline once again.
I'm tired of these negros stirring up trouble. Leave the white man alone!
