Thomas Cook Staff Threaten To Remove Woman From Flight Over Outfit

Thomas Cook Staff Threaten To Remove Woman From Flight Over Outfit

Emily O'Connor says she was wearing a black crop top and orange pants when she boarded the Thomas Cook flight for Tenerife in Birmingham, UK.

The airline's cabin services director had spoken to her "to find out more information" about the incident, it added.

Emily added: "There was a man behind me wearing a vest top and a pair of shorts, and I was thinking to myself, I'm getting targeted, and said that my shoulders and arms are out, when a gentleman is in the exact same situation".

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

"I could wear that in Birmingham in the street, and I wouldn't get harassed", she said. Describing the entire incident in details, the woman told The Sun, "A guy two rows in front of me shouted: "Shut up you pathetic woman, put a f***ing jacket on" and they all just let him shout at me".

"It was the most sexist, misogynistic, embarrassing experience of my life".

"I couldn't think about anything else for the rest of the holiday", she told the Birmingham Mail. The crew did nothing in response, she said.

Like Seungri , Jung announced that he also would be leaving the industry following the accusations made against him. I am ashamed to say I used to be a BIGBANG fan", said Jenny Eusden, an English teacher in South Korea.

Two top Facebook execs are leaving the company
Fidji Simo, head of video, games and monetization, will be the new head of the Facebook app, Mark Zuckerberg said in a blogpost. He did point out Facebook is "turning a new page" by focusing more on messaging and encryption.

Ultimately, she ended up putting a jacket on to appease staff and social commentator, Liz Brewer - who appeared alongside Emily on the This Morning sofa - said staff were right to kick up a stink about the "demeaning outfit".

She posted on social media about the incident once she was back in the United Kingdom. Or an even bigger question still, why does anybody give a flying (yes I know what I did there) fuck what anybody else wears?

Thomas Cook has since apologised to Ms O'Connor, saying "it's clear we could have handled the situation better".

A Thomas Cook spokesman said the airline was "sorry" to have upset Miss O'Connor.

Love Island's Gabby Allen has come out in support of Emily, tweeting "It's safe to say, I will never fly with Thomas Cook again".

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". This applies equally to men and women of all ages without discrimination. "Our crews have the hard task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right".

The airline noted that its policy, available in the inflight magazine, states customers wearing "inappropriate attire (including items with offensive slogans or images) will not be permitted to travel unless a change of clothes is possible".
