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…
