This is Maggie McMuffin. Maggie is a burlesque performer and also a friend. This is what she was wearing last week when JetBlue told her she was dressed inappropriately and couldn’t board the flight from Boston to Seattle she had paid for. She was connecting in Boston from NYC, also a JetBlue flight – which had no issues with the way she was dressed.
No explanation was given except that the pilot said her clothes would prevent her boarding the plane. The flight lead asked if she had anything else to wear, and told her if she didn’t they could rebook the flight for her. Maggie ended up having to go to another terminal to buy a pair of women’s sleep shorts in XL for “proper coverage”.
Despite contacting Jet Blue at length, all they have done to “make it right” is refund her for the swim trunks and give her less than $200 in credit. The company apologized but the pilot did not. They have not offered any explanation for their behavior.
Sexism is alive and well in this world. How does what Maggie was wearing effect her ability to fly? It doesn’t.
Please share this status. Make this go viral. Maggie did not deserve to be treated like this.

Brie Cantes Be consistent. Make it a problem across the board (all the flights with this airline) or else not at all. Frankly, the pilot is the one with a problem. Although she isn’t that slim, a lot of much fatter people are probably offended because they are grossly overweight and cannot dream of wearing anything like this…just saying.
Blair Patton i am sure there were other women on that plane with shorter shorts. I think this is a race issue…(mocking)
Daryl Best I Think you not understanding . As a guy I have no right to judge what woman wears. This person has right to wear what ever she wants. Regardless of anyones opion. This was waist of time to bother this woman. Reguardless of all negtiveness on this post. I hope the airline at least reviewing there dress code policey.
Jodi Matthews Why would anyone want that much of their thighs to touch those airline seats? The bottom of this outfit resembles underwear and the pilot made the right call. Dress like this is offensive to most people unless it is at the beach.
April Dawn Asbridge Goodan Wrong so wrong the pilot is still able yo fly, people what is next. Think about it. What if it was you? This is censorship she did nothing wrong. What’s next hair too long, no redheads. Just wrong.
Rolan Lop By that before protest does not read. Where said the conditions for addressing a plane, also said that these forced dress appropriately, I recommend that you read all the terms and conditions , you daras account that if they applied to a third of the passengers could not address, that costume is very ridiculous and ordinary
Mare Ab Apparently airlines have lowered standards with all not just this woman for the almighty dollar. I am not sure I want to fly anymore. Hygiene and standards when doing communal traveling…Ugh…https://www.instagram.com/passengershaming/?hl=en
Salauka Ofafaric Look!Its a private company.They make their own fucking rules.Just don’t fly with Jetblue anymore.If you come to my party,I decide whether you come in or not.You can’t make me love your clothes in my own fucking house.Peace out!
Mare Ab I’m for everyone wearing non-descript uniforms as we board the plane. Perhaps with the JetBlue logo on it…included in the exorbitant price for new employees to be the fashion police and make sure that everyone is feeling equal and looking equal. “Cough” “Cough” It’s just a flight…point A to point B. Follow the Contract of Carriage every major airline has it and you will get to your destination to do what you really meant to do and be where you really meant to be.
