This Woman Actually Showed Up To The Airport In Just Underwear

If you’ve ever been in an airport and wanted to just rip off your confining pants and bear your underwear for all to see while conversing nonchalantly with a Virgin America staff member, then you have a lot in common with this woman.
The Daily Mail regales the Internet with quite the story. Unfortunately, it’s not one that has a lot in the way of closure. According to a post from Reddit user deftones1, a woman showed up at the airport wearing everyday attire, but the story becomes remarkable when it was noticed that the lower half of her body was gowned in simple underwear and nothing more.

We once considered wearing flip-flops to the airport but thought it might be too casual for the flight.
We were wrong.
As stated, the report isn’t exactly rife with pertinent details such as who this woman is or what caused her to saunter out into the world as if it were her own living room, but there are still some fantastic tidbits, such as how the airline managed to turn this ridiculous and inane moment in aviation history and turn it into an opportunity for public relations talking points.
The Daily Mail spoke with a Virgin America spokesperson who gave us the ol’ razzle dazzle:
“We're the only airline based in California - and we're known for doing things differently as an airline and for being a bit cheeky ourselves, so we welcome all travelers. With custom-designed, mood-lit cabins and touch-screen entertainment and WiFi at every seat on every flight, we encourage our guests to kick back and relax when they fly us -- our guest clearly took that message to heart.”
A necessary follow-up question may have been, “Seriously, why was this woman in just underwear?”
Sadly, we are left to carry on with our day with one of life’s more unexpected brainteasers. The report reminds that a similar wardrobe ploy played out a few months prior at London Stansted airport when a disgruntled woman took off her skirt after a screening process went awry.
In that case, the woman was arrested. Perhaps that is what happened here with our lady in carefree attire. Or, perhaps, she disappeared into the melee of properly dressed folks meandering about the airport. Never to be seen again, like some traveling Keyser Söze.
