Melbourne, Jan 23 (ANI): A US airline allegedly denied a flight to a female flight attendant for not dressing provocatively enough.

Karin Keegan, 37, says a male JetBlue employee told her to change into a lower-cut shirt and tighter pants before boarding the plane.

But even after wearing the clothes, the hostess was denied the flight saying she was too late to get on the plane.

And now Keegan has filed a lawsuit against the airline in Pittsburgh federal court, reports

It states: “Ms Keegan changed into more provocative clothes, but (the employee) told her she was too late to board the plane and should have dressed like that before.

Keegan wasn”t working at the time of the incident as she is employed by Delta, who has an agreement with JetBlue to ferry Delta flight attendants to job assignments on a standby basis.

Keegans attorney Samuel Cordes said that his client is also claiming loss of income because she has stopped taking JetBlue flights to job assignments to avoid harassment by the male employer. (ANI)
