Video was shared Tuesday evening of a man walking through the Dallas – Fort Worth Airport naked near the gate C30 TGI Friday’s. He notices a passenger filming him, and gives them a shout out before continuing on his journey. I won’t embed the video into the post, but you can see it here if you wish.
It always amazes me how long it takes for law enforcement to respond to incidents inside the airport, considering the number of officers across numerous agencies that are already onsite – from customs, TSA, DEA, local law enforcement and more.
People on social media are noting that the man is something of a doppelganger for Senator John Fetterman. If Chuck Schumer hadn’t changed Senate rules, you might have thought that this passenger was protesting a dress code.
In fact a flight was delayed 11 hours after a passenger became unruly, stripped naked, and requested sex from a flight attendant. A nearly naked man stormed a TSA checkpoint and got tased on the buttocks. A woman stripped naked and kicked at the cockpit on a Frontier flight. And a naked man fell through the ceiling of Boston Logan’s terminal C.
Virgin America – since acquired by Alaska Airlines – even confirmed that passengers are welcome to check-in in their underwear.
However, since Naked-air didn’t make it when they tried to offer Miami – Cancun service in 2003, the general expectation is that if you’re headed to the airport – no shoes, no shirt, no pants, no service.
