The airline dress codes Olivia Culpo and others don’t know about

Published

on

Gone are the days when people got gussied up to fly on airplanes — but unbeknownst to many passengers, airlines still have some expectation of decorum. 

Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo found out the hard way that certain outfits aren’t permitted on passenger aircraft when she was asked to “cover up” before boarding an American Airlines flight to Cabo on Thursday.

And she’s far from the first person to break major airlines’ largely unknown dress code rules: TikTok creator Sierra Steadman was asked to get off her August Alaska Airlines flight for her apparently inappropriate outfit. “I’ve never felt more degraded,” she captioned a clip of her account.

The next month, another woman claimed she was booted from an Alaska Airlines flight for how she looked

Here’s everything we know about the few vague, public rules major US airlines have regarding onboard dress requirements.

The Post has contacted JetBlue, Delta, United and American Airlines for further comment.

Delta

Following a 2017 incident in which United wouldn’t let a group of teens onto a flight due to their leggings, Delta cheekily took to Twitter to reveal that the bottoms are fully allowed aboard their planes.

“Flying Delta means comfort. (That means you can wear your leggings),” the company tweeted at the time, before adding in response to a question, “We don’t have an item-specific clothing policy, but we encourage no swimwear, sleepwear or underwear as your outerwear.”

A higher standard, however, is expected of those affiliated with the airline. 

“We ask our employees and their family and friends flying on pass privileges to use their best judgment when deciding what to wear on a flight,” a Delta spokesperson told Travel + Leisure following the Culpo incident.

United

United made headlines in 2017 for not allowing individuals onto their flight due to their leggings.

The move sparked widespread online outrage, with critics including a slew of Hollywood celebrities accusing United of being sexist and body-shaming the girls.

“[United] humiliated everyone. They’re sexualizing young girls,” witness Shannon Watts raged to The Post after tweeting about the incident, which she called “leggings-gate.’’

Model Chrissy Teigen added in a tweet, “I have flown United before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf.”

However, the company subsequently made clear that leggings are, in fact, allowed on flights, tweeting, “To our customers…your leggings are welcome!” 

The teens, however, had been pass riders, who are held to a higher standard of dress than general customers.

JetBlue

“As is common across airlines, JetBlue crew members and their friends and relatives flying with free flight passes are asked to maintain certain minimum dress standards and be well-groomed at all times,” an airline spokesperson told Travel + Leisure in a statement.

This includes face masks: A couple was recently banned from flying on JetBlue after they refused to wear their face masks properly and abused crew members on a San Diego-bound flight.

The airline said the passengers were asked several times to properly wear their face coverings before takeoff but they ignored the federal mandate, News10 ABC reported.

American Airlines

“As stated in the conditions of carriage, all customers must dress appropriately and offensive clothing isn’t permitted onboard our flights,” American Airlines vaguely revealed of its dress policy after a bodybuilder accused the company of banning her from her flight over her attire.

Deniz Saypinar got stuck at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport when American Airlines flight attendants took issue with her fashion sense and banned her from boarding, according to the report.

In response to The Post’s request for comment, a spokesperson referred to the airline’s Conditions of Carriage, which specify that passengers are expected to “Dress appropriately; bare feet or offensive clothing aren’t allowed.”

Southwest

A Playboy model traveling with her 7-year-old son said she was “humiliated and embarrassed” by a Southwest Airlines flight attendant who told her she couldn’t fly while wearing her low-cut leopard-print top, according to a report.

Eve J. Marie, who was headed from Dallas to Tulsa, told Jam Press that the crew member told her she’d have to change out of the revealing outfit because it violated the airline’s dress code.

Eve J Marie was booted from the flight for her attire.
Marie said she’d been able to board an earlier flight without any problems at all. “When the African American attendant called me over and told me they had called somebody to inform me of needing to change my clothes or be removed, I was so surprised,” she said. “The attendant herself apologized. This flight was my layover and the first flight said nothing, so if this was truly the policy, then why was I not informed before I even boarded the first flight?” Marie said.

“When they threatened to remove me off the plane if I didn’t have a change of clothes, I felt completely humiliated, embarrassed and highly offended,” the buxom Instagram influencer told the outlet.

According to material posted online, the airline “may, in its sole discretion, refuse to transport, or may remove from an aircraft at any point,” any passenger who engages “in lewd, obscene or patently offensive behavior, including wearing clothes that are lewd, obscene or patently offensive.”

Alaska Airlines

A woman who claims she was booted from a plane because her “stomach was showing” says she was actually discriminated against for being a “fat, tattooed, mixed-race woman.”

Ray Lin Howard, 33, claims she was booted from a flight for her skimpy attire. “I felt like I was being discriminated against for being a fat, tattooed, mixed-race woman, which in turn left me full of emotions like anger, disappointment, helplessness, humiliation and confusion,” she said.

Fairbanks, Alaska, resident Ray Lin Howard, 33, alleges she was harassed by Alaska Airlines staffers. In turn, she did what people do these days to state her case: She took to TikTok to post a now-viral video.

In the footage, Howard can be seen getting escorted off of a flight by police officers who proceed to question her about the incident. She alleges that it all started when Alaska Airlines staff “harassed” her about her attire, which consisted of a midriff-baring top and biker shorts.

When reached by The Post for comment, representatives for Alaska Airlines said, “We’re in contact with the guest. We’re committed to finding out what happened and taking the appropriate actions. It’s our goal to provide caring service to all of our guests. When we don’t live up to that goal, we do everything we can to make it right.”

“The dress code on both Alaska and Horizon is casual, and the requirement is simply a neat and well-groomed appearance,” reads a disclosure on the airline’s website. “Clothing that is soiled or tattered and bare feet are never acceptable. You are expected to use good judgment, but customer service agents will have the final authority to refuse travel for inappropriate attire or appearance.”

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
