Woman almost kicked off Thomas Cook flight over crop top

An airbus A320 of the Thomas Cook company

Emily O'Connor described the "worst experience of [her] life" when she was allegedly told she could only travel on the flight from Birmingham to Tenerife if she put a jacket on.

In another tweet, she said "a gent two rows behind me was wearing a vest top and shorts.yet clearly nothing was said to him".

A British woman recently went through a traumatic experience when a flight manager and staff of a Thomas Cook flight cornered her and threatened to de-board her if she did not cover up her "revealing outfit".

She says she "informed the staff that there is no "appropriate wear" policy stipulated online", before standing up to ask other passengers if they were offended by her outfit choice.

Following an investigation into the incident, the airline says it wants to apologise to O'Connor again.

She then told BirminghamLive: "I have never felt so vulnerable or humiliated, it was horrific". "Put a f***ing jacket on".

Emily O'Connor, 21, from England took to Twitter to detail the alleged incident and called out airline staff, who she claims harassed her and verbally abused her after she boarded the plane.

"I was so upset and they could clearly see that yet they continued to note how inappropriate and offensive I was".

O'Connor was given a jacket by her cousin, who was seated at the front of the plane, and was not watched until she had physically put it on, she said.

An airline spokesman told Express.co.uk: "We are sorry that we upset Ms O'Connor".

Emily appeared on "This Morning" to defend her now famous outfit.

She said: "Let's get a few facts straight".

He said: "It's clear we could have handled the situation better".

He also added that the airline has an appropriate clothing policy that applies "equally to men and women of all ages" but that applying the policy can be hard and crews "don't always get it right". The policy is applicable to men and women of all ages, it said, adding that airline crews face the "difficult task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right". "Our crews have the hard task of implementing that policy and don't always get it right".

She took to Twitter and received support from many, and her following poll found that 86 per cent agreed it was "appropriate flying wear".
