In one of those bizarre “there must be more to it than that” sort of stories, a woman is suing JetBlue for making her prove to them that she was wearing underwear. Apparently she was, but the Captain wouldn’t fly with her and she wound up taking another flight four hours later.
Ms Knowles said she was wearing a baggy blue T-shirt over a pair of short dark denim shorts she had put on for the flight on July 13, last year when she was forced off the plane at LaGuardia Airport.
She was taken to a hangar, where she lifted up her T-shirt to prove she met the dress code.
The supervisor seemed surprise at her shorts and she was allowed to return to the flight, but was then told the pilot refused to fly with her onboard
The especially bizarre claim is that “a JetBlue supervisor put a walkie-talkie between her legs to see what she had on under her baggy T-shirt.” The first time I thought that I wondered, was he hoping that her underwear would speak? (“Breaker One Nine, All Present And Accounted for!”)
Although I suppose the suggestion is that a walkie talkie was used as an instrument to move aside other clothing and inspect?
Surely there’s more going on here?
