Model Told To Cover Up 'Inappropriate Top' Before Getting On Flight With Family
| Last updated
A model has claimed she was asked to 'put on a blouse' to cover up her 'inappropriate top' before airing an American Airlines flight. Watch below:
Olivia Culpo, 29, was heading to Cabo San Lucas on Thursday (13 January) with her sister and boyfriend and shared a clip of the incident on her Instagram stories.
As shown in the vid, sibling Aurora argued that her sister looked 'appropriate' in her black sports bra, black biker shorts, and a long black cardigan when she was told to cover up at the gate.
Aurora said: "Olivia and I are going to Cabo. Look at her outfit... She looks cute, she looks appropriate, no?
"They call her up to the desk and tell her that she needs to put a blouse on otherwise she can't get on the plane. Tell me, is that not so f***ed up?
"American Airlines, I love you so much, [but] please get me to Cabo."
While filming, her sister added: "See? She looks beautiful but they don't care."
Another woman in a turquoise outfit was also pretty bemused after witnessing what happened.
She joked that the model looked far less 'inappropriate' than she did, saying: "She's covered up! My t*****s is out! That's weird."
Anyway, Olivia eventually put on her boyfriend's oversized grey hoodie in order to board the flight, leaving him probably feeling a little chilly for the journey.
According to the American Airlines website, it states that passengers must 'dress appropriately' in its 'conditions of carriage' and 'bare feet or offensive clothing aren't allowed'.
LADbible have contacted American Airlines for comment.
This isn't Culpo's first run in with airlines, however, after she slammed JetBlue for banning her dog from her flight to Rhode Island to visit her family.
As reported by The Mirror, on Instagram, she wrote: "I'm sure I'm not the only one who ran away crying at the airport, but it's the worst experience I've ever had.
"I just want to be able to go home.
"When both your parents have COVID and you're trying to get home to help them but suddenly your dog who was already pre approved is not allowed to fly with you.
"I have never wanted to be this person and I have always been the hugest @jetblue fan but I am just soooo so so upset right now. He has flown on this airline so many times and it's never been an issue."
At the time, Jet Blue said in a statement: "At any time while traveling, our crewmembers may ask legally allowed questions and confirm the qualifications of a trained service animal.'
"We work to consistently enforce these policies, however, a customer may be stopped from proceeding with travel at any point if it is determined an animal does not meet the required qualifications."
