We all like be comfortable on a long haul flight (or a short one ever, idf we're being honest!)

 

And I challenge you to tell me of a more comfortable shoe than a gloriously fluffy pair of UGG boots.

 

Well, if you love hitting the airport in a cosy UGG boot, you may want to reconsider ever flying with Qantas Airlines (one of Australia's most popular). 

 

Joanne Catherall, a singer from The Human League, was recently turned away from a Qantas Airlines business lounge because she was wearing UGGs. 

 

Apparently, the airline deemed Joanne's UGG boots as 'sleepwear' - which is banned from business and first class lounges.

 

 

It all sounds a little extreme, if you ask us. 

 

Also, does anyone else see the irony in the fact that UGGs are banned from an AUSTRALIAN airline - the birthplace of the UGG brand.

 

This is also not the first case of an airline attempting to police a woman's attire this year. 

 

In March of this year, United Airlines made headlines  when they prohibited a young girl from boarding a flight because she did not meet their dress code policy. 

 

She was wearing leggings... I mean, REALLY? 

 

What do you think, ladies? Do airlines have a right to dictate what we wear?
