Chrissy Teigen has proven herself once again to be the Queen of Twitter, after launching an amazing rant against an airline.
The model has promised to boycott United Airlines after they refused to allow three young girls to board a flight from Denver to Minneapolis because they were wearing leggings.
Two of the girls were refused entry to the plane as the items of clothing go against the dress code set for customers using staff travel credits. One was allowed to board after changing into a dress.
After seeing the news, Chrissy tweeted the bold claim: “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.”

The airline’s strict clothing policy has also angered Sarah Silverman, who has pledged to boycott them in future too.

United Airlines have since clarified their position in a blog post, saying that the young girls weren’t allowed to wear leggings because they were travelling via “pass riders”.
“We care about the way we present ourselves to you, our customers, as we believe that is part of the experience on board our flights. One of the benefits of working for an airline is that our employees are able to travel the world. Even better, they can extend this privilege to a select number of what we call “pass riders,” they wrote.
“These are relatives or friends who also receive the benefit of free or heavily discounted air travel – on our airline as well as on airlines around the world where we have mutual agreements in place for employees and pass riders.”
They added: “To our regular customers, your leggings are welcome.”
