Flyer wore see-through top, but that’s not why she was ejected

Low-cost carrier confirms recent incident

A passenger on board a UK-bound plane, who had originally been flagged for her revealing attire, was removed from the aircraft for behaving “disruptively”. 



Harriet Osborne had boarded her easyJet flight from Malaga (Spain) to Stansted (UK) wearing a top that the carrier said was sheer and exposed her nipples, the Independent reported. 


But after other passengers complained about the item of clothing, cabin crew provided the woman with an additional top, which she duly wore. Unfortunately for her, her attitude then became the issue. 


“We can confirm that a passenger travelling from Malaga to Stansted on 23 June was unable to travel due to behaving disruptively,” an easyJet spokesperson said. 


“Following concerns about her clothing, crew politely requested that the customer wear an additional top for the flight which the customer agreed to. However, she then proceeded to act disruptively towards a member of our crew.


“Our cabin and ground crew are trained to assess all situations and to act quickly and appropriately. We do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour towards our staff.”


Ms Osborne has apparently expressed her anger over the incident with other outlets.


The drama follows another recent easyJet incident, in which the airline flew an 88-year-old lady’s suitcase from London’s Luton Airport to Bordeaux without her.
