The airline told the passsenger that her outfit was offensive to her fellow passengers and was regarded inappropriate.
British airline Thomas Cook recently asked a woman wearing crop top to either leave or cover up as the airline felt her clothing was "inappropriate" and "causing offence". The airline was going to Canary Islands from Birmingham, England.
The airline told the passenger that her outfit was offensive to her fellow passengers and was regarded inappropriate. Emily tweeted that four of the crew members came to get her luggage to take her off from the plane.
She claimed that she a passenger on-board abused her, and the flight manager and crew members didn't say a word. Emily also said that she asked the passengers if her attire was offending them. However, no one said a word except for one man, who is said to have abused her.
Flying from Bham to Tenerife, Thomas Cook told me that they were going to remove me from the flight if I didn't "cover up" as I was "causing offence" and was "inappropriate". They had 4 flight staff around me to get my luggage to take me off the plane. pic.twitter.com/r28nvSYaoY- Emily O'Connor (@emroseoconnor) March 12, 2019
According to the Washington Post, the airline issued a statement, "We are sorry that we upset Ms O'Connor. It's clear we could have handled the situation better. In common with most airlines, we have an appropriate attire policy. This applies equally to men and women of all ages without discrimination. Our crews have the difficult task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right."
This has divided the Internet with half of the people supporting Emily and the other half supporting the airline. Last year, Thomas Cook landed in controversy after they kicked a honeymoon couple off their flight as they had complained about food.
