American Airlines issued an apology after a woman wearing a romper said she was removed from the plane and told she should cover herself with a blanket.
Tisha Rowe, 37, tweeted a photo of herself in the strapless romper she said she was wearing on the June 30 flight — an image that quickly went viral on social media. She was eventually allowed to return to the flight and traveled with her son from Jamaica to Miami.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Here is what i was wearing when @AmericanAir asked me to deplane for a talk. At which point I was asked to ‘cover up,’” she tweeted. “When defending my outfit I was threatened with not getting back on the flight unless I walked down the aisle wrapped in a blanket.”
American Airlines reportedly apologized to Rowe and gave her a full refund for the flight.
