PUMA Now Offers United Airlines Passengers a Discount on Its Leggings
“We fly in our leggings.”
Earlier this week, it’s reported that United Airlines refused to let two girls onto a flight simply for wearing leggings. According to The New York Times, United barred the teenagers from boarding because they “violated the company’s dress code policy for ‘pass travellers’,” a benefit that allows United employees and their dependents to travel for free as standby passengers.
However, the incident has sparked a heated debate on social media, with many feeling unsatisfied with the company’s explanation. Model Chrissy Teigen even wrote mockingly on Twitter: ”I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf.”
In response to the controversy, PUMA is now offering customers 20 percent off its leggings. Announcing on its Twitter account, the sports brand encourages shoppers to “Stay Fly” and to present their United Airlines tickets at its stores to redeem the discount.
