American Airlines sorry after 'telling woman to cover up'
American Airlines has apologised after allegedly telling a female passenger to wrap herself in a blanket to hide her outfit. After attempts to defend her outfit apparently failed and her son become upset, Dr Rowe said she felt forced to wrap a blanket around her waist and return to her seat feeling "Humiliated". Dr Rowe has also accused the airline of racial bias and discriminating against her body type. On Tuesday the airline said they had apologised to Dr Rowe and her son and refunded their travel. In 2017 the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People issued a "National travel advisory" about American Airlines, citing "Possible racial bias" and "Disturbing incidents".
