Dressed to Fly?

There are still those who dress up for a flight (suits, heels)—and many more who don’t. Malinda Knowles, a financial consultant from Harlem, fell into the latter category when traveling from New York’s La Guardia Airport to West Palm Beach on JetBlue. In a lawsuit filed in July, Knowles claims that she was escorted from the plane, taken aside, and had to prove she was wearing underwear. Allegedly, the pilot still did not want her on the plane; she was put on a later flight to Florida, where she had a business meeting—for which we hope Knowles packed a change of clothes. JetBlue did not comment.
