Dr. Latisha 'Tisha' Rowe was leaving Jamaica with her son when her vacation took a turn for the worst. Upon boarding American Airlines to head back home to Miami, Rowe, wearing a summer romper was asked to deplane for a talk.
Rowe was told that she would not be allowed to fly unless she covered herself. Her thighs and arms were exposed in the strapless romper. Rowe said the employee asked if she had a jacket, and ended up giving her a blanket to wrap around herself.
Rowe tweeted about her experience and shared a picture of the outfit she was wearing. (see below)
American Airlines spokesperson Shannon Gilson said the company is investigating.
“We were concerned about Dr. Rowe’s comments, and reached out to her and our team at the Kingston airport to gather more information about what occurred. We apologize to Dr. Rowe and her son for their experience, and have fully refunded their travel. We are proud to serve customers of all backgrounds and are committed to providing a positive, safe travel experience for everyone who flies with us,” Gilson said in a statement.
