Thomas Cook dress code

It seems the press are making an issue of that girl that TC deemed inappropritely dressed for a BHX - TFS flight. She was even interviewed on This Morning. Call me old fashioned but my view is she was inappropriately dressed and should have covered up instead of wearing a bra.

if she did not "cover up" the bralette
"bralette"... Crikey, that's a new one to me... perhaps a sign of age!

Wonder how she'd have reacted had Cosmo Smallpiece sat next to her?

About time someone took a stand. It never ceased to amaze me when I saw the state of some of the passengers boarding my aircraft. As for the ones who went to the loos barefoot towards the end of a flight when the floors could be swimming in it......!

The airline should apologise immediately for its boob.

She was going to Tenerife. That was a clue for the crew. Is Thomas Cook a puritan/ Islamic fundamentalist airline?

Have they seen the way young women wear leggings lately? Revealing is my impression not that I object.
What were they thinking?

There's more to Tenerife than the pleb resorts. Once you've got more than about 100 yards inland it's quite civilised.

Ms O'Connor described it as the "worst experience" of her life.
Has she got a shock coming when some real s**t happens to her!

I think you guys are making complete tits of yourselves
Seriously though - some of you are a bunch of grumpy old men.
So what about leisure wear then - skin tight leotards and midriff exposing crop tops?
Seen all the time down here in Sydney.
My strategy is to just quietly sit back and enjoy the view - as I do every time I step back and graciously let a woman go through the door before me
The nay sayers arguments may bear some weight if it's council-house Shazzer on the way to the Costa De Sol - but as to this well-fit nice young lady...?

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

A friend of mine when moving SLF would have banned naked flesh and high heels and anything that would impede on evacuation.

She was dressed exactly as for a trip to the beach and i think for many SLF that is all that metal tube is, a bus, albeit an Airbus.

Men are just as bad.

This is a common uniform for international flights between Oz and Bali

The picture wasn’t what I was expecting when I read the headline. By modern standards her dress looks pretty innocuous compared to some sights you see. I find it hard to believe that her attire is the most revealing on board a TCX flight in an average week.

I see that The Times printed the report without seeing the need for inverted commas around "bralette" (the assumption being we are all unfamiliar with the word). In another report they followed their usual practice of printing "pitot head" thus!

In future, any scantily clad women should be brought in to see the captain who will (after thorough assessment) provide the final say. If the outfit is deemed particularly filthy, she should remain in the flight deck for the duration of the flight.

I'm told by those who know about these things that a bralette, a bit like my local football team, has lots of support but no cups.

Or it might be the other way round.

Think you got it the right way round. Lots of cups and no support wouldn’t be too appealing. Probably a bit weird, in fact!

Unless there's a minimum dress code contained in the airline T & C, is such a requirement by staff legal?

It would have been simpler to explain that she needed to cover up for protection if there was a fire onboard and a rapid evacuation was required. Oddly enough I cringe at people filling their cars wearing Tshirts, I myself pop a jacket on before refuelling having seen someone caught in a flash fire while doing similar and the ensuing burns he received on exposed skin.
