Plane attire …American Airlines has apologized after flight attendants asked a Houston doctor to “cover up” on a flight. Dr. Latisha “Tish” Rowe was wearing a romper on her recent flight from Jamaica to Miami when flight attendants pulled her aside and told her what she was wearing was “too distracting” and that she needed to cover up. According to Dr. Rowe, she was told if she did not have acceptable attire, she and her 8-year-old son would not be allowed to fly. She ended up having to wrap herself up in a blanket. Rowe tweeted about the incident and included a photo of what she was wearing. (People)
