Delta is pulling United's leg(gings) on Twitter

Delta's social media team gets a gold star today.

Delta Air Lines jumped at the chance to lure any upset United passengers to fly Delta.

People on social media freaked out about United Airlines' dress code policy after the airline wouldn't let two girls get on a flight to Minneapolis Sunday because they were wearing leggings and didn't have a change of clothes.

And Delta took advantage of the uproar with a tweet on Monday.

Delta also tweeted about its dress code for pass riders, which is "relaxed." Though they said people should never wear "unclean, revealing or lewd garments, or swimwear or sleepwear on a flight."

United by the way did clarify that regular passengers can wear leggings. But because the girls stopped from flying on Sunday were pass riders – meaning they were relatives or friends of a United employee and are in turn "considered representatives of United" – the dress code is stricter.
