Thomas Cook airlines caught into the headlines for the whole world, as the staff asked a woman to deboard or cover her crop top. The woman was wearing a black crop top with spaghetti straps and high-waisted orange pants.

This British airline did this because they found a woman’s clothing as “inappropriate” and “causing offense”. The airline was going to Canary Island from Birmingham, England.

Emily O’Connor, a 21-year old woman who was offended by the airline resident of Birmingham took a flight from her hometown to Tenerife, Spain on March 12. She was dressed properly according to her and if we saw the picture of the lady we even didn’t find anything wrong in her attire. However, soon after one of the crew members asked her to cover up her body or de-board the plane.

The airline’s four staff member came to take off her luggage and told her that her outfit was offensive to fellow passengers and was regarded as inappropriate. But the girl patiently asked the members what’s the problem in such attire, and I think somewhere she is right because is not in a bikini and was wearing a crop top with spaghetti strap, but that become a huge issue, and the tweeted about the whole incident happened with her.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Flying from Bham to Tenerife, Thomas Cook told me that they were going to remove me from the flight if I didn’t “cover up” as I was “causing offence” and was “inappropriate”.

She claimed that a passenger in the same flight abused her, and the flight manager and crew members didn’t say a word in her defense. Emily also mentioned that she asked fellow passengers that if her attire was offending them. However, no one said a word except the man who was reported to have abused the lady.

According to a post, later on, the airline issued a statement, “We are sorry that we upset Miss. O'Connor. It's clear we could have handled the situation better. In common with most airlines, we have an appropriate attire policy. This applies equally to men and women of all ages without discrimination. Our crews have the difficult task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I informed the staff that there is no “appropriate wear” policy stipulated online. I stood up on the flight and asked if anyone was offended, no-one said a word. <br>Would really appreciate if you could vote and share on the below!</p>— Emily O'Connor (@emroseoconnor) <a href="https://twitter.com/emroseoconnor/status/1105592686814416898?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 12, 2019</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

This controversy has also divided the internet, some her talking in her favor and some are opposing her. Last year, Thomas Cook landed in controversy after they kicked off a couple from their flight when the couple compliant about food.
