BOSTON – A burlesque dancer says JetBlue employees at Boston’s Logan International Airport forced her to change clothes before she was allowed to board a connecting flight to Seattle.
The 26-year-old dancer uses the stage name Maggie McMuffin. She tells The Boston Globe she was waiting for her flight May 18 when a JetBlue employee requested that she change out of her high-waisted shorts or risk not being admitted onto the plane.
McMuffin says her black-and-white short shorts “covered everything” and her body was “90 per cent” covered, given that she was also wearing thigh-high socks and a sweater.
JetBlue spokesman Doug McGraw says airline employees discussed McMuffin’s clothing and determined it might offend families on the flight.
McMuffin complied but called it embarrassing and vowed to never fly JetBlue again.
