A 21-year-old woman from Birmingham cried foul after the crew of Thomas Cook airline allegedly forced her to "cover up" so she wouldn’t be removed from the flight.


Emily O’Connor, who was flying to the Canary Islands on March 2, 2019, when the incident happened, took to Twitter to share her experience.


Her tweets about the incident have been shared thousands of times on the social network. Her situation elicited mixed reactions.

“Flying from Bham to Tenerife, Thomas Cook told me that they were going to remove me from the flight if I didn’t ‘cover up’ as I was “causing offence” and was ‘inappropriate’,” she captioned a photo of her standing at an airport wearing a black crop top and yellow trousers.

“I informed the staff that there is no ‘appropriate wear’ policy stipulated online. I stood up on the flight and asked if anyone was offended, no-one said a word,” she wrote.


She added that the airline staff didn’t do anything when another passenger verbally abused her.

She recalled the male passenger yelling at her, “Shut up, you pathetic woman! Put a [expletive] jacket on!”

“The staff said nothing to him,” she wrote of the flight manager and four flight staff.



O’Connor said her cousin handed her a jacket and the flight manager and staff did not leave until she put on the jacket.

“They made comments over the speaker about the situation and left me shaking and upset on my own,” she wrote.


Her tweets about the incident have been shared thousands of times on the social network. Her situation elicited mixed reactions.

"I’m crew myself and would not think twice to ask you to cover up, there is no policy on what you can and cannot wear! That is awful to see that the crew on board made you feel that way, disgusting," one Twitter user wrote.

Another wrote: “You probably made a scene with your refusal and stubbornness... It shouldn't have gotten that bad.”


According to Daily Mail, Thomas Cook issued a statement apologizing for the incident but also pointing out its "appropriate attire" policy which appears in its in-flight magazine.



Another flight incident that recently widespread attention was between a Delta Airlines pilot and reality TV star Tamar Braxton’s sister Towanda Braxton.

Towanda shared a video of the pilot talking sternly to the two of them. The pilot can be heard telling the women about how things run on the airplane.


“Here’s how this works. My flight attendants work for me. They give orders that come from me. So, if you get an instruction from a flight attendant, I need to know that you are willing and able to do what you’re told to do. Are you willing and able to do what you’re told to do by a flight attendant? Don’t ask me any questions. Answer yes or no.”

Towanda claims that the pilot's actions were racially motivated, but the airline denied it.
