I'm sure they were pretty but they could have been a nuisance around the other people on the flight. Young people can be very rude in public thinking no one will say anything as I do what I want...
yeah right

I don't see it. Not THAT cute.
My guess is they were acting like spoiled brats, and deserved to be treated the way they were.

With the attitude like that ( I'm soooo beautiful, alot prettier than anyone else ) I can't imagine why nobody liked you. The truth be known, ya'll like all right, but the right personality can make someone look a whole lot better !

They are not that pretty...I do wish the media would tell the whole story and not just basically slam a business. They would not want to hurt someon's feelings, maybe warp their self-esteem. This typical media...They were acting like spoiled little kiss my but kids.......

Sounds like they are brat, air headed, etc. What a couple of DAs. Get over yourself. Probably were rude and not realizing it. Some young folks today are butts and have no personal skills.

So EVERYBODY else was against those two? Yeah right. They're just trying to get the attention that the lady who was supposedly dressed too sexy to fly got.

Not logical. You knock politely at the restroom door and someone comes out yelling profanities? Yeah, right! I would be willing ot bet they were pounding on the door. How would the person in the restroom know who to yell at. Maybe it was pretty clear who the culprit would be due to their behavior prior to the restroom incident.

The girl seem to be the typical "I get treated bad cause I'm pretty" girls. I always hated this attitude. Seems to be the thing these days though. There is something to be said for beautiful girls who are humble. I am sure these girls were acting snotty.

Um, too pretty...these girls? I don't think so...maybe for the likes of Hooters (nice bodies, ugly faces), but no where near Playboy.

As is too common, people blame their status rather than their conduct for slights, both real and imagined.

If you push their heads real close they look just like a set of boobs.
