Is this outfit inappropriate for flying?

She was then told by the flight manager and four flight staff that she would be removed from the aircraft unless she put a jacket on.

She claims she was repeatedly asked by cabin crew to cover up - first as she was boarding the plane, and subsequently by a group of the plane's staff who surrounded her in her seat and claimed her outfit was "inappropriate".

An airline has apologized to a 21-year-old woman for threatening to offload her from a flight for wearing "inappropriate" attire.

She said the staff "did nothing" when a male passenger shouted: "Shut up you pathetic woman".

Outside of a footwear requirement, the airline's policy specifies articles of clothing with offensive slogans or images, according to a copy of the policy sent to The Post.

When O'Connor refused to change, she says a manager left to get her bag in order to remove her from the flight. I was physically shaking, and they could see that, yet they continued to sexualise and ridicule me.

O'Connor says she then put on a jacket lent by her cousin, who was also on the flight. There have been over 20,000 votes, with 85 percent of people saying her clothing was appropriate to travel in.

Thomas Cook Airlines said it has apologized to O'Connor and the airline's cabin services director had spoken to her "to find out more information" about the incident.

Another regular traveller said: "We book a family trip every summer with @ThomasCookUK". Genuinely fearful this could happen to my step daughter.

"That is very bad to see that the crew on board made you feel that way, disgusting!"

A spokesperson for Thomas Cook told LADbible: "We are sorry that we upset Ms O'Connor".

He also added that the airline has an appropriate clothing policy that applies "equally to men and women of all ages" but that applying the policy can be hard and crews "don't always get it right". The policy is applicable to men and women of all ages, it said, adding that airline crews face the "difficult task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right". "Our crews have the hard task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right".
