Passenger on AA from KIN-MIA asked to deboard to change from her romper outfit

By my judgement, Dr. Rowe's romper outfit did need to be covered up. But since when was any airline's regulations standardized??

"Rowe told KHOU that she was traveling with her 8-year-old son on June 30 when she was asked to step off the plane. Once off, she was told to cover up or she wouldn't be allowed back on. After failing to change the crew's mind, she asked for a blanket, wrapped it around herself and then walked down the plane's aisle to her seat.

American Airlines rules state only that passengers must "dress appropriately," and bare feet or offensive clothing aren't allowed. Rowe said the crew didn't single out anyone else, even a woman who wearing smaller shorts."

Old news.
But yeah, that outfit looks more like a bathing suit or something you wear at the beach than a proper attire for an airplane ride.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with her outfit. It’s a romper, a very common form of casual wear for women (and increasingly men). Whoever told her to “cover up” needs to realize this isn’t 1950.

Not the level of clothing dignity I'd choose for myself or my family, but I am old-school.

Hardly appears obscene or offensive, and we've all seen worse.

I find the weird fear of the female form in the US rather odd.

Dress codes/policies apply to both men and women.

So, it's OK for you if a pax shows up dressed like that?

How is her outfit any different to a guy taking a flight in shorts and a t-shirt? I've taken most of my flights dressed like that (shorts & t-shirt, not the romper suit!)

I flew SCQ - MAD on Ryanair yesterday wearing jeans shorts and a sleeve-less T-shirt.
I was overdressed and conservative compared to the rest of the passengers.
That romper would have seemed classy, modest and elegant amongst the other outfits.

I dont see anything wrong with it, not my personal taste. Where is a line drawn? How much clevage can you show? What about cycling shorts?

From wearing cycling shorts while cycling across Britain, I learnt two things 1 - Wales must be quite dull, and 2 - what it is like to be a women when men are staring and not at your face.

So the age in which men wore suits and women wore dresses went away sometime in the late 60's. All of her parts were covered and she was flying from Kingston, Jamaica to Miami, Florida in the summer time.

Given her parts were covered, there is no room for an airline to tell a revenue passenger what to wear. The fact some of us think its not "appropriate," is entertaining but irrelevant.

The person who added this woman's profession and reputation in her community adds context.

We are in 2019, not 1959 and we see this happening to women almost exclusively and women of color disproportionately.

Actually, it is very relevant; as the AA employee found her attire to be not appropriate and against the Contract of Carriage. Remember: an airplane is still a private property, and the owner or operator can set their own rules.

Please explain how it adds context to know she's an MD. Does that mean she's superior to others? Does it mean she can be above the rules established by the airline?

Yes. And I was on another site of similar subject matter the other day where a thread was started on this and one of the members called this lady “a pig of a woman” and in another thread called a thin blonde white woman in a picture within the thread who had no curves “a cute girl.” So a black woman with curves is seen as a pig and a thin white woman with no curves is “cute”. :roll:

Unless the airline reprimanded the employee (even if just a discussion), then it's their way to save face towards the public.

Please. I flew AA in and out of Miami from the Caribbean on Sunday and saw l less covering outfits than this on two separate flights. (And I was paying particular attention only because this incident happened last week.) One lady even had on a bikini top on the inbound, but she was in no way, shape, or form curvaceous. That's really what this is about.

This is on the crew of that flight - for whatever reason some member or members of that crew couldn't handle her (fully covered up) curves. That's it.

Worrying about stupid stuff like this is just another reason why AA is so terrible these days. Sunday was my last flight on them until Parker is out and they change some specific policies that are incredibly customer-unfriendly. I'm tired of them and their continuous foolishness. They are basically Spirit with reclining seats and worse customer service at this point.

Actually, the owner didn't speak, as American Airlines is a publicly traded company.

And the reason DOES matter: accept it or not, in this day and age, social media "justice" is extremely powerful, and a lot of time extremely damaging.
So, American did damage control which was to "sacrifice" their employee on public place. But I'd be extremely surprised if this employee faced actual consequences behind closed doors.

Rompers don't show cleavage so that should not have been and was not the problem, judging by the picture.

The only thing I can see she has curves on her hip; so the fabric contoured to her bottom half more closely. Still nothing that required her to be de-boarded; especially since her hip was going to be planted in the seat and out of site the entire flight.

What was their policy, "offensive"? Right, define offensive. I hope they get sued for millions every time for such a subjective policy.
IMO, in today's world, any dress code has to be gender neutral, and define specific areas of skin which need to be covered with opaque clothing. How tight can clothing be? Whatever. What colors? Whatever. How would you regulate most things? Images and words on shirts? Where would the airlines draw the line? They have to be pretty specific, or pay out for being arbitrary and capricious in enforcement.

Well said to all of your points! I could careless she’s a doctor, or what skin color she is. You said it best. It’s a private company, not government. . . . They can make and set rules as loosely as they want or as strict as they want. You can also choose to fly them if you want or pick another airline. Give her a refund and let her go AA if she “violated” your rules. Pretty simple.

If AA had a dress code with shoulder straps, they could have won. No bandeau or mandeau tops.

How much exposed back or stomachs do airlines want? Some gyms require a tank top and no exposed skin. Just write a policy.
No exposed skin on the torso below the chest, or whatever. In which case Madonna and those dudes would not be in compliance.

But they once again, you will have to have employees “policing” their passengers to make sure their dress code is be enforced, and once again your asking a human to define, and decide what is offensive and what’s not.

If all she had to do was change the way the outfit was presented, there’d have been no need for her to cover up with a blanket.

Why is the crew even getting involved in policing outfits?

Every time you step into a private property; the owner or operator can kick you out if they feel your classiness (or lack thereof) is contrary to company values or rules.

WHO ARE ANY OF YOU TO TELL A WOMAN HOW TO DRESS? Having lived in the Caribbean, women of such voluptuous beauty can be seen at every second of the day. If it is a case that she has been blessed with such a body and not you or whoever you may be associated with, who's fault is that? Most of these comments are extremely sad and repulsive. Moderators continue to turn a blind eye to such folly!

This isn't a sit down restaurant

WHO ARE YOU TO TELL US WHAT TO THINK? Some of us have an opinion (that's contrary to your obviously) and are not forcing it down your throat as you're trying to.

Again, she stepped onto a private property; as such, she has to abide by the rules set by the property owner or operator.
WHO ARE YOU TO TELL AA WHAT THEY CAN AND CAN'T DO ON THEIR OWN METAL? See how one can use your own train of thoughts against you?

And? It's still a private property with set rules.
Why would it be different between an airplane and a restaurant?

I see better dressed people at the supermarket, but I don't find this outfit reason enough to kick her out. However, really, people should try to look more respectable when flying and when in public in general. I'm not gonna force them to wear anything and certainly not gonna treat them as less than humans, and also not an advocate of returning to suits and dresses. But c'mon...

First of all, there is nothing wrong with that lady’s outfit and anyone who thinks otherwise can go back to the 50s with their “standards of dress.”

Also how gay am I to instantly recognize Cazwell in the pic of guys below the Queen of the Retirement Home?
