"Sexual harassment, inappropriate behavior, intimidation or predation have absolutely no place anywhere in our society — including, and especially, in our industry and on our aircraft," United told NCOSE in a statement. "In 2018, we strengthened our training for flight attendants to recognize, address and respond to instances of sexual harassment of any kind on board our aircraft and will continue to adapt and enhance this training moving forward."

"We recognize the need to continue the discussion among all of our workgroups to further ensure that our policies reflect our values and safeguard those traveling with us," the company said.

NCOSE said it removed United from its Dirty Dozen list for choosing to prioritize the staff training.

"In recent years, incidents have soared of passengers viewing hardcore pornography on their personal devices (even in front of children!) in tight, closed quarters, leaving fellow passengers and flight crew feeling unsafe, emotionally triggered, and victim to sexual harassment," the organization said in a statement. "Many reports expressed that United Airlines' flight attendants appeared to be particularly ill-suited for these situations."

In January, a Colorado woman said she was denied entry to her United flight because her outfit was “too revealing,” she wrote on social media.

The incensed woman, who goes by the name “Andrea Worldwide” on Facebook, recently wrote a lengthy post about how a male United Airlines employee stopped her before boarding her flight earlier in the month at Denver International Airport and asked her to “step aside.”
