Iryna Ivanova is a Playboy Playmate with 4.2 million Instagram followers, who tried to board a JetBlue flight wearing a long knit skirt that exposed her underwear. Airline officials told the model, who appeared in the 2017 DJ Khaled video “I’m the One,” that she would have to change to board the plane.

A man has been refused entry onto a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight for wearing shorts.

Jordan Bishop, a Forbes contributor and founder of corporate flights concierge Yore Oyster, was due to fly from Jakarta to Istanbul via Riyadh with the airline on 3 October.

A manager came over and told Bishop: “Sir, I’m afraid we can’t allow you to board. You cannot fly with Saudia wearing shorts.”

Bishop was asked if he had any trousers he could change into – he didn’t – and was subsequently informed, “If you don’t have pants, I can’t allow you to board.”

Saudia Arabia is one of the few Muslim majority countries that imposes a dress code by law. All women, foreign and local, must wear an abaya (a long loose garment that covers their clothes) in public places.

 Qantas refused lounge entry to Joanne Catherall, a vocalist for English pop band Human League because she was wearing Ugg boots into the airline’s business class lounge.

“These guidelines are intended to create an environment that everyone can enjoy and we look forward to welcoming you into our lounges soon,” the airline’s message.

Leggings

The American Airline didn’t allow girls in leggings get on flight from Denver to Minneapolis because spandex is not allowed.

United initially stood by its decision due to the ‘Contract of Carriage’, which gives agents the authority to refuse passengers who are “barefoot or not properly clothed”.

But the airline has since changed its tune – explaining that the girls were flying for free on an employee pass, which has a dress code attached to it.

United explained: “When taking advantage of this benefit, all employees and pass riders are considered representatives of United. And like most companies, we have a dress code that we ask employees and pass riders to follow.

“The passengers this morning were United pass riders and not in compliance with our dress code for company benefit travel. We regularly remind our employees that when they place a family member or friend on a flight for free as a standby passenger, they need to follow our dress code.”

The airline added: “To our regular customers, your leggings are welcome.”

 Deshon Marman, a young man arrested on U.S. Airways Flight 488 after his pants sagged too low to the ground.

Marman, 20, was arrested after he refused to pull up his pajama bottoms upon boarding a flight from San Francisco to Phoenix to Alburquerque, N.M. Marman plays on the University of New Mexico’s football team.

“His underwear was covering his private areas, but his pants were below his shorts, so it was in full view of the traveling public,” Sgt. Michael Rodriquez of the San Francisco Police Department said.
