    I personally think one should wear a little more as a courtesy to people around them, as we are often sitting next to strangers on airplanes–I don't need (or want) direct access to someone's armpit. This absolutely applies more to male's then female's, as we males tend to smell worse in that area. Imagine a dude in speedos or extremely short shorts. Should that be allowed? Please, no.

    That said, given the context (Jamaica to Miami), I think it was wrong to force this woman to cover up. The "over sexualized" comment is dumb. That just means men are attracted to women's bodies. News flash….we are! Women also can't walk around topless. There's always a line between appropriate and not. Obviously that line has shifted over time and it's impossible for all to agree on what that line is. Anyway, as I said before, I think it was wrong in THIS case to make her cover up, threaten to not let her fly, etc.

    And now she’s contacted a lawyer lol really !!it’s not that damn serious and it’s not about race .I’m sure if a white women tried to climb on the plane looking like a hooker same would happen get over it put some clothes on.

    Don’t we have any decency in life anymore? I don’t believe even a bit that this has anything to do with race. Am not particularly fond of AA services. Their flights are almost always delayed. Stewards can sometimes be a little bit unfriendly. However, this time I commend them for doing what they did. Some passengers may feel uncomfortable seated with someone dressed like this. They probably want to respect other passengers feelings. Even yet, they maybe protecting her from a possible assault. There could be crazy people on the plane too, you know. And then what, she’s going to sue the airline for that? Litigations, litigations, litigations.
    And she is a doctor?

    I travel a lot, on American and other airlines, and I've seen people wear much less than this woman and no one has ever said anything to them. Recently a middle aged white woman with sagging skin had a tiny top and tiny shorts, she looked like a biker type with her tattoos and all, like maybe she should be standing on a corner looking for a customer. And no one called her out. I feel Miss Rowe was picked on because of her race, plain and simple.
