This Woman was Not Allowed on JetBlue Flight Due to Her ‘Inappropriate Shorts’

Did you know that airlines have dress codes? It may seem hard to believe, considering how people dress when they’re flying these days, but one woman says that JetBlue staff wouldn’t allow her to board her flight because her shorts were inappropriate.

From Metro:

Maggie McMuffin had been trying to board a flight from Boston to Seattle when she was told that ‘she was dressed inappropriately’.

The crew told her she would not be allowed to board the JetBlue flight unless she covered up, despite arriving in Boston on a connection with the same airline.

The burlesque dancer had been wearing a pair of stripy shorts with a jumper and thigh-high socks at the time.

… The airline’s policy states that they have the right to remove anyone from a flight ‘whose clothing is lewd, obscene, or patently offensive’.

Maggie said that though the company apologised for the incident, the pilot did not apologise.

… A spokesperson for JetBlue said: ‘The gate and onboard crew discussed the customer’s clothing and determined that the burlesque shorts may offend other families on the flight.

While the customer was not denied boarding, the crewmembers politely asked if she could change. The customer agreed and continued on the flight without interruption.

‘We support our crewmembers’ discretion to make these difficult decisions, and we decided to reimburse the customer for the cost of the new shorts and offered a credit for future flight as a good will gesture.’

To be fair to JetBlue, those shorts look more like underwear than they do… well, shorts. But if there’s going to be a dress code, they should maybe let passengers know ahead of time instead of springing them on it last minute.
