American Airlines apologizes over outfit scandal

A tweet she shared of the playsuit she became wearing has been shared hundreds of times since. However, there is no clear example of what kind of clothing would be deemed offensive.

Rowe was traveling from Jamaica back to the United States when she was targeted by American Airlines.

American Airlines has apologised after allegedly telling a female passenger to wrap herself in a blanket to hide her outfit.

Rowe, who is black, said there were white passengers on the plane with outfits that were far more revealing than her's, but they weren't asked to cover up. Her thighs and arms were exposed in the strapless romper.

Emily O'Connor was flying to Tenerife from Birmingham when staff told her she would be removed from the flight if she didn't put on a jacket. She said, "I looked at myself".

"I have a very curvaceous body, and I put my body in bold colors, so you're going to see it". My shorts covered EVERYTHING but apparently was too distracting.

"The difference between that woman and me is she was about a size 2, thin". "I do not know why I was harassed...to offer a refund with an apology, like saying, 'here let me throw this change at you so you can go away and sweep it under the rug'". But it's not vulgar. You were dressed appropriately.

Rowe claimed that a flight attendant approached her after boarding the aircraft and asked her to deplane. When she arrived at the Kingston airport, she recalls, she was sweating and stepped inside a bathroom to cool off before boarding. She said she walked up and met another flight attendant, who directed her off the plane to the jetway. He said Rowe is contemplating a lawsuit against the airline.

In a series of viral tweets, Rowe said an American Airlines flight attendant stopped her and told her that her clothing was inappropriate. 'There was nothing I could do in that moment other than give up my money and my seat to defend my position that I was completely appropriate'.

She said she was told if she didn't comply, she and her son would not be allowed to fly.

"My automatic mommy protective mode started", Rowe recalled to the outlet. I don't want to be in this situation.

A woman, who is a doctor and mother, was told to cover up her outfit or she would not be allowed to fly. "I just was embarrassed".

She added that her son spent the flight in tears, with a blanket over his head.

She said she will "never forget this experience", which left her 'disgusted'. "I have no idea what was the source of this in the first place".

"I felt powerless", Rowe told Buzzfeed.

In a statement to PEOPLE, American Airlines spokeswoman Shannon Gilson said the company was remorseful and doing what they could to make it up to her. Unfortunately, we've been unable to reach Dr. Rowe or leave a message at the number provided.

"We apologize to Dr. Rowe and her son for their experience", she said.

'We are proud to serve customers of all backgrounds and are committed to providing a positive, safe travel experience for everyone who flies with us.' .

This is an article about two giant American companies - American Airlines and GM - that apparently have nearly the exact same two-word dress code. You policed her curves.

In 2017 the Nationwide Association for the Advancement of Coloured Of us (NAACP) issued a "nationwide spin back and forth advisory" about American Airways, citing "that that it is possible you'll consider racial bias" and "nerve-racking incidents".

"How else should one dress. from Kingston to Miami?".
