Airline apologizes to woman told to 'cover up or leave plane'

Responding to a tweet saying it was unsuitable to wear underwear on planes, Miss O'Connor said she had bought the item in the "summer tops" section of Zara past year. After she asked the rest of the flight if they were offended by her clothing, the manager went to find her bag to remove her from the flight.

She wore a fashionable outfit of a crop top and trousers to the flight.

Emily was given a jacket by her cousin and the staff would not leave her until she put the jacket on.

O'Connor shared her experience with Thomas Cook online in a post that has rapidly gone viral. As long as you can't see her nipples it doesn't really matter!

The 21-year-old took to Twitter to share a photo of the outfit she was wearing, which consisted of an orange pair of pants and a black strappy bralet.

In another tweet, she said "a gent two rows behind me was wearing a vest top and shorts.yet clearly nothing was said to him".

"They made comments over the speaker about the situation and left me shaking and upset on my own", she wrote. She did not immediately respond to a message from The Post requesting comment. The crew did nothing in response, she said.

"To be honest why did you make all this fuss and not just cover up and get on with the flight", wrote one Twitter user.

Liz added: "I don't want to criticise you Emily but we live in a world today where we get all these sexy selfies". I wish I didn't need to wear a bra with a crop top! "It's clear we could have handled the situation better".

He also added that the airline has an appropriate clothing policy that applies "equally to men and women of all ages" but that applying the policy can be hard and crews "don't always get it right". The policy is applicable to men and women of all ages, it said, adding that airline crews face the "difficult task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right".

Meanwhile, Emily also narrated her ordeal on Twitter and received a lot of support from the netizens who called out Thomas Cook for its misogynistic behaviour. "Our crews have the hard task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right".

The crew member then showed Ms. O'Connor page 113 of the inflight magazine, which stated that customers "wearing inappropriate attire" would not be allowed to travel "unless a change of clothes is possible".
