What is the other side of the story? We only heard theirs. There is probably more here than was in the report.

This story make me long for the days when there was news on the morning news. Nice job on lowering the bar on the quality of local television journalism.

They look passable at best in the picture. On TV, the dark-haired one was NOT pretty. Not even particularly cute. Frankly, I'm a hell of a lot prettier than these girls, but I'm not a total biyatch about it, and coincidentally haven't ever been treated poorly by airline staff. Hmmm girls, ever think that you get treated right when you deserve to be treated right? I don't think that looks have anything to do with it. I think it's all in the attitude. Clearly these girls have some sort of attitude of entitlement. I just can't believe they thought coming out with this story would benefit them. I imagine they're going to be the laughingstock of whatever school it is they attend. Oh well.

How could anybody have the audacity, not only to THINK they're being mistreated for being "pretty", but to actually SAY it! They are obviously a couple of spoiled, conceited trouble makers - and stupid to boot. Don't they know attractive people supposedly get special treatment? The best part is they are on the low side of average by
any standards. Pathetic.
Right on kelley,not that pretty,

It seems to me that all the bad behavior that we are seeing on tv concerning bad behavorior by so-called celebrities is flowing over to the general populace. Now normal people like these to children from oldsmar think that they are better than everyone else because they have this over-rated opinion of themselves. Get over it kids. I hope Southwest sues you for slander and defamation of character for your actions. Apparently the only side of this we are going to hear is yours and that makes me wonder how truthful you are being. That is my nickels worth.

They think they are pretty, but there are others that are far prettier; like Ginger. They are just trying to get thier 10 minutes of fame & anything else they can get. And why fight with someone on an airplane, they were in the bathroom doing there business; not all people are quick (doing there paper work). I have flown too many time to count and everyone gets served at the same time. Why should she think she is special. Grow up girls and get a life.

I think Southwest Airlines owes these two women an apology for the overall treatment they received from the moment they stepped on the plane. As for the incident on board, the two women and the man involved should have been questioned - the man who yelled at the women on board started it all. Moreover, I feel these two women were wrongly banned from flying Southwest and ought to consider seeing an attorney and bringing some kind of legal action against Southwest. Believe me, flying from Tampa to Los Angeles is a long haul.
Where you on the flight?

WELL, THEY GOT THEIR WISH, AND AT THE SAME TIME THEY'VE ENSURED THAT MILLIONS OF VIEWERS NOW KNOW WHAT SELF-SERVING,SELFCENTERED,ARRO GANT, EMPTY HEADED TWITS THEY ARE. EVERYONE HANG IN THERE FOR THE 2ND INSTALLMENT. NEXT, THEY'LL WANT US TO BELIEVE THEY'VE BEEN DIS-CRINMINATED AGAINST BECAUSE THEIR SKIRTS ARE TOO SHORT, OR THEIR BOOBS ARE TOO BIG. PLEASE SPARE US ALL YOUR THEATRICS AND FIND SOMETHING
CONSTRUCTIVE TO DO WITH YOUR
LIVES.

By the way, its not people who fly on Low Cost Airlines, it is people who are flying today in general. There are people escorted off of aircraft DAILY because of disorderly conduct. Heck even the famous Pastor Joel Osteens wife was escorted off a Continnental flight for disruptive behavior.
I agree Totally with you !!! But In General the "Unique" group of New Flyers seem to be Attracted to Low cost Carriers

They ain't even pretty. They're 5 out of 10 in ranking at best. Just because they think that they are pretty , that they deserved special treatment.
I think that this is their first time flying since, they don't serve drinks on the ground at Southwest. They probably left their seats to used the restrooms with the seabelt signs still illuminated when the flight attendants were serving drinks.
Use common sense and try not to be one of the barbie doll will you....

How old are the people that are actually commenting on these girls? This story is a ridiculous waste of airtime. The only thing to be discussed here is exactly how embarrassed Janie Porter is for having to do this unbelievably stupid story.

It's clear these two were being really obnoxious and demanding. And I hope they get what they deserve. Good job, Southwest.
