Australian Model Isabelle Eleanore was left humiliated on an Australian Airline Jetstar over her crop top outfit.
But it was considered inappropriate for flying amid asking if she had a jumper she could wear. “So they made a huge scene when I stepped on the plane and made me wait in front of everyone while they searched for something to cover me up with.” Isabelle wrote to her 3010 TikTok followers alongside a photo of the outfit.
Here’s the outfit that was considered inappropriate for flying from Gold Coast to Melboune.
She added: “Then I had to walk all the way to my seat wearing this vest. This is discrimination and humiliation JetStar Australia. Apparently, my top is too small, and I couldn’t fly without covering up. If I had small breasts, I guarantee they wouldn’t have said anything. They forced me to put on a hi-vis vest. Am I lost? Is it 1921, not 2021?”
Isabelle was requested to wear a staff member’s high-vis jacket on the flight.
“She looked at the ticket and then looked up and said,’ Oh, do you have a jumper you can wear?”
In an interview with Channel 9News, Isabelle went into details of what transpired. She explained: “She looked at the ticket and then looked up and said,’ Oh, do you have a jumper you can wear?” She added: “And then here’s me thinking she must be concerned I’m going to get cold on the flight, it’s going to be cold in Melbourne or something. She kept going, and she was like, ‘Well, you can’t fly with what you’re wearing, you can’t wear a bikini. And I’m like, ‘Look – it’s not a bikini, it’s a top.”
She added: “And then here’s me thinking she must be concerned I’m going to get cold on the flight, it’s going to be cold in Melbourne or something.”
