Flying while black. Nothing was inappropriate about her attire at all. I've seen people with shorter shorts on flights regularly.

I’m looking at the picture and I can’t tell if her butt is just covered with straps or it’s the lightning. I would base my opinion on that factor
Ah, I missed that. I think everyone else is missing that.

Could be an optical illusion, but looking closer, it does look like it's just individual straps laying over her butt/back half of the outfit. Surely that's an illusion...but maybe not.

I mean....can you wear a bikini on a plane if you want? That would be less clothing....unless she doesn't have underwear on.

Edit* The darker areas appear to have "folds" in them...so I think it's just a dark pattern, not skin.

Looks like a solid piece of fabric w/a print on it.

The only way this makes any sort of sense is if you could see through the outfit in certain lighting and it just happens that the photos in the OP don't capture that. The other possibility is that she was having repeated wardrobe malfunctions with her top that she couldn't or refused to adequately address.

Her outfit is fine.

The woman in the OP is wearing normal clothes. Nothing odd about that.

Now this one I can't blame EasyJet for:

Possible NSFW photos:
Also fine.

I have no problem with what either woman is wearing in either of these cases. I'd run around naked myself, if it didn't scar others or myself, lol.

What you all fail to realize is the real time aspect of all this. That piece of clothing likely comes with a jiggle behind it. Thats what we arnt seeing here. This woman has voluptuousness about her, so that comes with jiggle and how she walks.

She probably disgusted a few passengers because she jiggling everywhere and it was offensive to the poor young boys on the plane. Lol!! This world i tell ya...

Yeah, that's too much, looks like lingerie. Fact you need a disclaimer NSFW backs that up.

Flying is such a routine thing I don't really see why airlines are making weird judgments about clothing (beyond racism/classism). It ain't the 1950s where flying was so rare people dressed up in suits and made an event of it. Lemme be comfortable.

Blatant racism on display goddamn. This is a fairly conservative outfit all things considered. I hope this lady gets paid for this garbage treatment.

I mean that's very revealing but why the fuck is it anyone's right to tell others how to dress?

I have seen white girls wear booty short the length of my finger on a plane. No doubt this is racially motivated. The person or persons who enforced her to wear the wrap needs to get sacked.

Missing from the original article I read on WaPo

Washington Post
She and her son finally walked back to their seats. Her son then covered his face with the blanket. When Rowe peeked under it, she saw that he was crying.
“ ‘Mommy, follow the rules,’ ” he told her, according to Rowe’s account. “I’m trying to explain to an 8-year-old — Mommy did not break the rules.”

I hope she dunks on that airline via lawsuit. I see people wearing less than she does, on a daily basis on my way to work.

Fuck airlines for being absolute cancers.

even if this was like 50% more revealing it would still be fine. as long as you're not literally in a bikini/speedos or lingerie/underwear, theres no excuse for this.
