STANDARDS IN PUBLIC LIFE: Woman removed from flight for wearing a crop top

A British woman has claimed she was told to “cover up and leave” a flight for wearing inappropriate clothing – while wearing a top and trousers.

Emily O’Connor said she was told she was “causing offence” while on board a Thomas Cook flight from Birmingham to Tenerife and was surrounded by “four flight staff” who tried to remove her. Ms O’Connor said she was left “physically shaking” following the alleged incident. The holidaymaker took to social media afterwards to voice her complaints.

That's fricken ridiculous. It's not like she was flying El Al or Emirates. It was a Thomas Cook to Tenerife ffs!

The airline said its policy states customers wearing "inappropriate attire (including items with offensive slogans or images) will not be permitted to travel unless a change of clothes is possible".

Wonder what constitutes 'inappropriate'? Technically someone in a long skirt could be considered a trip hazard or someone wearing heels. Pretty sure I've seen lots of people on planes dressed in less that this woman.

Christ, who was flying the plane? Aunt Lydia?

Ginmonkey - 14 Mar 2019 11:09:09 (#5 of 80)

Why was she wearing a crop top, in Birmingham, in March?

thisonehasalittlehat - 14 Mar 2019 11:10:11 (#6 of 80)

She was going to a hot country.

Ginmonkey - 14 Mar 2019 11:11:11 (#7 of 80)

She has clearly never heard of the holiday journey layer. Just pop a cardie over the crop top and button it up.

thisonehasalittlehat - 14 Mar 2019 11:12:08 (#8 of 80)

Well that's really up to her isn't it.

GrrrIbdis - 14 Mar 2019 11:12:32 (#9 of 80)

We need pictures. Without pictures, it's impossible to know whether the crop top was adequate, even as a crop top.

Ginmonkey - 14 Mar 2019 11:13:16 (#10 of 80)

Indeed. You can't have a proper judgey thread with no pictures to aid the judging. Poor show TVOR.

thisonehasalittlehat - 14 Mar 2019 11:13:18 (#11 of 80)

There's a picture accompanying the BBC article.

More of a bra top really.

Tadagee - 14 Mar 2019 11:14:04 (#13 of 80)

There's about an inch of flesh on show.

GrrrIbdis - 14 Mar 2019 11:14:22 (#14 of 80)

The picture is not available. I did try.

Not something you really want to shout about, Tadders

Ginmonkey - 14 Mar 2019 11:15:35 (#16 of 80)

Oh yes so there is. She does look like she is wearing a bra and pajama pants. Looks chilly too. Throwing on a sweatshirt or cardie would have avoided this.

FleurDuMal - 14 Mar 2019 11:16:33 (#17 of 80)

It does look more like a bra, IMO.

levelgaze - 14 Mar 2019 11:17:43 (#18 of 80)

I suspect its bra-like look was the reason for the tutting.

Arjuna - 14 Mar 2019 11:18:37 (#19 of 80)

and the reason so many publications are carrying the story

Arjuna - 14 Mar 2019 11:20:33 (#20 of 80)

I am outraged they tried to make her wear a burqa
