US Airways lets man in women's underwear fly

This is a June 9, 2011 photo provided by airline passenger Jill Tarlow shows an unnamed passenger scantily dressed and taken at the airport in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. US Airways is defending its decision to allow the man wearing skimpy women's panties and high heels to fly days before a football player was arrested on a plane in California over a dispute over his saggy pants. The man flew six days before University of New Mexico football player Deshon Marman was arrested on a US Airways flight in San Francisco over allegations he refused to pull up his pants. A US Airways spokeswoman told the San Francisco Chronicle employees were right not to ask the man on the Phoenix flight to cover himself but declined to comment on Marman's arrest.
