How would you feel if an airline banned you for how you looked? According to two young women, they’ve been banned for life from flying Southwest Airlines. Sarah and Nisreen made national news when they were escorted off a plane because they say the airline had a problem with them because they were “young and decent-looking” and their flight attendants were “middle-aged.” Southwest denies treating the women unfairly because of their appearance and says the women used vulgar language, obscene gestures and aggressive behavior. Joining the conversation is Kyla, who says she was told by Southwest that her outfit was too skimpy, and two other passengers who say the airline booted them because they were women. Then, McKay is a 15-year-old on a mission to end cussing. He founded a No Cussing Club at his high school and wants to inspire others to stop swearing and examine the power of words. McKay’s campaign has even motivated his mayor to pass a proclamation for a No Cussing Week in his hometown. Don’t miss reactions from the teen’s family and classmates! If it’s happening now, Dr. Phil is going to deal with it now! Join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

Mc Kay, GO, GO, GO

Today's youth think it is grown up to use foul language when it only shows low class status and lack of education. It is childish, vulgar and filthy to be unable to express oneself with words containing more than four letters.  The married couples on Dr. Phil's shows are rude and ugly to each other with their dirty mouths.  They show no respect, class or taste. I find it offensive. But then, I am educated.

Fly Girls

I'm not saying that these things did not happen to these girls, but I have traveled numerous times from Las Vegas, NV. and back and have seen, teens and women with hardly anything on fly out of and into Las Vegas, and have not seen them treated any differently.  There have even been Stripperscoming in to work for the weekend or leaving and are barely dressed, and I have never seen an attendant treat them any different.  On the other hand I have seen some barely dressed teens and women, enibriated and making an ass of themselves, and have heard the flight attendants ask them to "please tone it down:, or "clean up their language", or "their are xhildren on this flight".  I've even seen these enibriated girls go as far as trying to get elderly mens attention, and then when they do they would start flashing thier boobs and then laugh and say "don't you wish you can touch these or suck on these", sit with their mini skirts on and have thier legs wide open. I could go on but I will stop with those two incidents.   I've never heard a flight attendant be rude, but who's to say they are not out there.   I'm sure there are plenty, but I have yet to experience it.  But like I said in the beginning I'm not say that these things did not happen to these girls.

Sounds as though it was their behavior, not their appearance.

It certainly sounds as though this was an issue of behavior, and not appearance.  Had they been within earshot  I certainly would have asked to have them removed.  Kudos to Southwest for having enough consideration not to force the other 250 passengers to listen to theit foul language.

foul language

Amen! Way to go McKay. I am so tired of a society where such poverty of thought exists. I can't see anything rated R anymore because I do not want to be assaulted by foul language. I know that some of the younger folks don't even hear it anymore. They don't realize that even if they don't think it is okay to swear the more they hear it, the more likely they will swear.
Garbage in, garbage out!
Let's join the campaign.. no more foul language!!!!!

Sick Of It

Good for the airlines. I am sooo sick of looking at everyones bellybuttons and rear ends hanging out. What happened to Morals???  I hear  many people on their cell phones and every other word is****... I DON'T WANT TO HEAR THIS!! Stay in your car and talk in the parking lot, or somewhere else private.

Oh come on Dr. Phil!!

 Enough already with these whiny little brats. I can't believe that Dr. Phil is actually bringing that snippy Kyla back on his show especially after the way she acted the last time she was on his show. And didn't she say that if she got an apology from Southwest that she would NEVER appear on another talk show?? And Dr. Phil is bringing her back on? To do what? Whine some more about how badly she was treated? Like I said before.......ENOUGH ALREADY!!  Bring on some people that actually have real problems. Girls, get a life why don't you?????

Sounds like a load of you know what!

I hardly believe an airline would ban someone from flying simply because a person looks "decent", etc..

The obscene gestures and profanity sounds more like the reaons and I DON't BLAME THEM! KUDOS to the airline!!!

This country has gone to the garbage dumps with  profanity and obscenities  - it's SICK and DISGUSTNG! A movie can't even be made anymore without all the garbage being spouted! Does Hollywood really think people like watching and listening to that DUNG?!

The "looking young" thing has gone way overboard, too! I doubt if God recognizes most of His Creations out there in Hollywood anymore. A lot of money is making all the doctors filthy rich and I hope they're enjoying it. God says it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a RICH person to get into Heaven. That's something to think about! Also, "to whom much is given - MUCH IS REQUIRED." I don't think giving to charities has anything to do with that statement, either.


SEX crimes occur more than ever and WHY NOT? Walk around half naked and you're asking for it! That's TEENS as well as women! Look at the TRASH they're wearing! If you don't respect yourself it's for sure no one else is going to! Of course the designers are laughing all the way to the bank, too - selling all the trashy threads they're "designing" What a crazy, sick country we have become!

    i was sort of sympathetic to kyla, until she did the play on words about whether she was going to sue southwest airlines for the way she was treated.  i don't agree with the way she was treated, but i also do not agree with the way she wanted the apology, took the tickets, and then when dr phil called her on the lawsuit thing, she gave the tickets back.  hope the virgin airlines doesn't regret giving her the free tickets.
