This airline fuels the debate of the dresscode: after the controversy with the leggings they veto the UGG

This airline fuels the debate of the dresscode

The UGG boots are a complicated shoe that raises passions and rejects in equal parts. Either you adore their comfort, their softness and their relaxed airs or you detest their appearance of slippers to be at home. It seems that the Australian airline Qantas is aligned with that second option, because it has vetoed this footwear from its VIP waiting room. Do you remember the one that got involved with United Airlines when it almost left three girls on the ground for wearing leggings ? Second part of the story: the polemic of Qantas and the UGG boots.

It all started when Joanne Catherel, a singer from the British group The Human League, was left out of the company’s VIP lounge for wearing UGG boots. The thing seems serious, considering that it is one of the most popular Australian airlines rejecting one of the best-known Australian brands worldwide. The reason for banning him from entering because of his attire? According to Joanne Catherel, “they consider their boots to be sleepwear and this is a violation of the dress code of the VIP room”.

“Denial access to the Qantas lounge at the Melbourne airport It seems that the Australian UGG boots are considered sleepwear for the young lady who works there, although there has been no problem in any other lounge at the moment. I suggested that you go to one of the stores and buy me some shoes.”

Next, the airline itself supports its employee and reiterates the dress code, which is attached via Twitter.

“Hi Joanne, we strive to stay consistent and defend our dress code for all of our guests, you can find all the details here, Mark.”

The debate ignited completely in the social network , with responses from the singer and users defending it and affirming that it was all an error of the airline.

“Why would UGG boots that were worn on the street and in all kinds of weather conditions be considered sleepwear in Qantas but nowhere else I’ve been on Earth?”

“I’m sorry Qantas but this is very snobbish, I always wear UGG boots to travel because they are very comfortable and I have never been vetoed from a lounge in America, Europe or the UK.”

“Australia invented those things, you have to own them.”

“As someone has remarked, this is a slipper to be at home UGG.”

“Whereas what I was wearing were UGG boots for outdoors.”

“Sorry, but cost $ 150 to $ 300 a pair of boots, it makes no sense to compare them with slippers 15 to $ 40. If that’s slippers, Santa Claus, please let me two pairs under the tree, thank you.”

“Please, did they offer to buy you those most appropriate shoes?”

May UGG is the best known Australian company, but it seems that even in their country of origin raises controversy and passions. Between the incident of leggingsand United Airlines and now Qantas with UGG seems that you fly with comfortable and cozy clothes start to get complicated enough: we have to redefine our uniform travel and end up making long flights in tight jeans and shoes high-heeled?
