A holidaymaker says she was “completely humiliated” when she went to board a flight.
Andrea Worldwide was travelling from Denver, Colorado to Newark, New York with United Airlines when she was stopped by a male cabin crew-member.
According to the frequent flyer, she was almost refused entry onto the plane because of her outfit.
Andrea was wearing a plunging top, which showed part of her bralette.
She covered up with a cardigan and scarf, as well as wearing leggings and boots on her bottom half.
The traveller says she selected attire that would keep her feeling comfortable during her flight.
But sadly, Andrea was left feeling anything but comfortable when staff said she may not be able to board the flight with the outfit on.
The flyer told staff: “I’m completely humiliated, embarrassed, confused. I feel like all eyes are on me.”
And these words made them allow the United Airlines platinum member on board.
To make up for the upset, they also offered Andrea a travel voucher.
This offer was declined – and the holidaymaker later went on to say that this was little compensation compared to the embarrassment she felt.
Plane passenger branded 'disgusting' for draping hair over the screen behind her
Andrea told CBS4: "Two hundred dollars doesn’t even compare to the humiliation that I faced.
"If another female has to face this, I’d rather get the word out and maybe they’ll choose a different airline.
A spokesperson for United has since responded: “At United, our goal is for our customers to feel welcome and have a comfortable journey.
"We are reaching out to our customer to better understand what happened.”
