I just finished watching these two girls on tv and I have one question: What makes them think they have the right to treat other people rudely and then not have to answer for that behavior? They continue to make false statements about how the airline handled the situation. Let's not forget. People pay a fare for the service of being flown from one destination to another. That does not give them the right to use profanity towards airline personnel or other passengers. If the airline feels that one's behavior is inappropriate, as was the behavior of these two girls, they have the RIGHT to remove them. PERIOD. Grow up and act like the adults that you portray yourselves to be. The vail you attempt to shield yourselves with is a bit thin. I have flown many times on Southwest and have never seen anyone ever removed from a flight for no apparent reason. And that includes "Being to pretty."

They look like crack whores. They deserve all the criticism they are getting for their childish actions. From what I've seen they are rude arrogant immature little girls with a bad attitude. They need to grow up instead of sending some of their immature friends here because they cannot handle the backlash against them. Why don't you all go home and cry to your mothers about all the bad people saying mean thing about you on the internet. It's obvious you all are insecure self centered spoiled brats.

When I first heard this story I was like stupid bitches probably work at a cosmetic counter and think they are better than flight attendants. But then I caught an interview with Sarah Williams and thought maybe the media, in efforts to sell a story dubbed "Too Pretty Too Fly", distorted the facts enough to mislead the public. After all they had an airline with a track record.
In my interview with Sarah Williams I have come to the conclusion that it was a catty power trip by flight attendants that may have caused these girls harm, cost one of them their job and wasted the time of the FBI and Police. They were picked on from the start and Sarah admits she had exchanged a swear word with a passenger but it was provoked by the flight attendant and over with.(She and two other females were waiting for the bathroom-she knocked hard on the door. When the guy came out he asked the flight attendant what the problem was and the flight attendant said "It was that little blond girl".He called her a @$ she called him one back.) "I couldn't figure out why they didn't like us. When we came in my friend asked for a water and they snapped 'No go take a seat' and then when they passed out water they skipped over us. And after the incident with the gentleman was over they interrogated us about it to make a scene that wasn't a scene." As far as her being threatening, I hardly believe anyone feels that is the case. The female FBI agent who questioned her gave her a hug and said Southwest wasted the FBI's time.
Sarah seemed most upset that the media had portrayed her as conceded. Sarah said the media asked her what she looked like (in an obvious attempt to capitalize on past Southwest encounters) and she responded "young and decent' and when they asked about the attendants "older and not like us". I personally don't know how anyone could find that offensive. I do however can see how any female who flies, has a sister who flies, mother who flies may be offended that airline can blacklist you so you can't get a flight for five days out of a LA when you live in Florida. I think all involved are happy nothing happened to her while she was stranded.
Finally, this case is not like the girl who was told to cover her crotch because it was lewd. It is a story of mistreatment and unprofessional employees who do not know the meaning of customer service. If you did to customers at your job what they did you would be fired. And if it was Ivanka Trump instead of an administrative assistant this had happened to you can bet Southwest would have given a formal apology and compensation.
You can hear clips of the interview on the Jimmy Jubes Show at 7pm Eastern 4pm Pacific on Talkradiox.
Well I would like to hear from the authorities what they thought.

Ridiculous- the girls were rude. The girl was banging on the bathroom door! This started as an arguement between passengers. Southwest does not owe these girls anything- not even an apology. The flight attendants job is to keep things safe- these girls were causing a scene and could have escalated things to an issue of safety of all the other passengers if the attendant did not get involved. Saying they were too pretty is absolutely ridiculous.

This is NOTHING more than discrimination of those of us who are better looking and more attractive than the average person! I think they should SUE! I cannot believe all of the HATERS on this website who are knocking these girls. If it had been me NO ONE would have dared not give me what I want! I am a model. It is hard work. I travel ALL the time for shoots. I try to NEVER fly any carrier that does not have first class. The waitresses are usually rude no matter what airline I fly, unless it is the guys and most of them are gay and I really do not like the gays. I think they think it is just part of their job or something to be rude. But I do get what I want. I just can't believe that people can hate those of us who are more attractive than the average person. Would you treat a beautiful work of art with disrespect and insults? You would'nt. So treat those of us with beauty, like works of art.

Ha! Ha! This post is so dumb it cannot be real. If you are really like this you're doing a great job of making the point against the 2 crybabies. If those 2 girls had this type of attitude, and were so vain and shallow they deserve the treatment they got. If they sued I hope the jury would see through them and award them nothing. Okay maybe give them $1.

First, if these are the two, they're not that good looking. Second, I haven't read Southwest's side of the story. I imagine they have a slightly different scenario of events. Hang in there, maybe you two will hit it big in the entertainment field, however there's so much free adult entertainment available, I wouldn't think anyone would be willing to pay to watch either of you.

I think discrimination is doing well, attractive women are being discriminated against even in job interviews, since other women who are self conscious, less attractive and envious can be detrimental to more beautiful looking women.
and many men also can be mean and rude when it came to beautiful people.
the whole idea that a good looking person can have more charm and success make many green with envy.
anybody who shows signs of envy to attractive people shouldn't receive any chance in a position of power.
they need psychological help

I don't get it.
They look like average women to me.
Just a weird story.

I say take off the makeup. Expose the true person then you will see the beauty if any.
