Dress Codes in the news — again

Last year’s kerfuffle over leggings worn on air flights, has now shifted to rompers. American Airlines threatened to kick this woman and her son off a flight between Jamaica and Miami unless she covered up. The alternative was to wear a blanket as she boarded the plane. She took the blanket option, but is now calling American Airlines to task over the incident. The airlines has a vague ‘inappropriate dress’ clause on their agreement with passengers but needs to be more specific if it expects to enforce a dress code without accusations of racism, sizism, etc. Keeping in mind this flight was in summer, and between Jamaica and Miami. I suspect most passengers were not wearing much more than this.

The outfit in question…

  1. All the potentially offensive bits are covered and then some. If you can get into an eating establishment like this, why not an airplane? I wouldn’t have the nerve to wear this, but I see worse on the street every day in the summer. What am I missing?

    • Exactly! I don’t love her outfit but I wouldn’t tell her she can’t come into the museum wearing it. I fear it has more to do with her size and colour than the outfit…
