    I can't understand a few things here. Southwest is known as a budget airline, and they have open seating. Now why would a Television star with alot of money fly a budget airline? Why not fly first class on some other airline?

    Second of all I don't care what your preferences may be, straight, Gay, Lesbian etc....... There are basic things you don't do in public, and it seems that they may have violated a few of them. A peck on the lips is ok, but it doesn't sound that this is all it was. If you wanna get hot n heavy wait till you get home or to the hotel, motel.

    You're on a public plane with everyone else. If you want privacy, charter a flight with your television career earnings, I'm pretty sure you can afford it.

    Once a performer, always a performer. ;)

    Blatant PDOA are just wrong, no matter who does them.

    Parents don't require still more questions from their young children. :eek:

    Somewhat presumptuous.

    The airline says it was not the kiss - the airline is now claiming they were taken off the flight because of their reaction to the homophobic comments.

    "Escalated conversation". I'll have to remember that.

    "No, I'm not yelling at you, I'm simply using an escalated conversational tone."

    The issue is would the customers be offended and complain if they saw a straight couple kiss. If so, then no problem. They suspect the reason why customers complained was because they were a lesbian couple.

    There is no way to prove this unless we interview the customers and hopefully get a truthful response from them.

    Withou being there and with conflicting stories from each side I'm afraid this just begs.

    I'm sure someone would complain. There are many prudes in the world.

    How about some class?

    Why does everyone have to be an outspoken victim?

    Let's say everything Leisha claims is 100% accurate: Why make a fuss about it on the plane?

    Land at your destination, and go through the appropriate channels to file a complaint/rectify your situation.

    For what it's worth, I would've gladly exchanged my seats for the passengers that moved;)
