Woman kicked off flight due to inappropriate outfit

30 May 2016, 21:42

Boston - Burlesque dancer Maggie McMuffin due to fly on a JetBlue plane from Boston to Seattle, was approached by a gate agent where she was told she wouldn’t be allowed on-board unless she covered up.

According to News.com.au, at the time, she was wearing thigh-high socks, long-sleeve top and quite short shorts.

Maggie said: “the flight crew had discussed it and the pilot had decided that I needed to put something else on or I would not be allowed to board the flight”.

To confuse the situation, Maggie claims nobody had a problem with her wearing the exact same outfit on her earlier connecting flight from New York to Boston — with the same airline.

The airline offered to re-book her on another flight but Maggie eventually, begrudgingly bought some pants.

Her friend Molly McIsaac shared Maggie’s story on Facebook, slamming the way the airline dealt with the situation: “Sexism is alive and well in this world. How does what Maggie was wearing effect her ability to fly? It doesn’t. Please share this status. Make this go viral. Maggie did not deserve to be treated like this.”

Maggie was given a $280 credit and a refund for the price of the pants she bought.
