Doctor wearing romper asked to ‘cover up’ before boarding flight


HOUSTON (ABC) – A Houston doctor said she was ‘humiliated and degraded’ by an American Airlines employee after she was asked to ‘cover up’ before boarding a flight.

Dr. Latisha Rowe was traveling when she was asked to deplane and ‘cover up’ if she wanted to get back on the plane.

She was wearing a romper that day.

Rowe’s attorney said the employee gave her a blanket to wrap around herself.

Rowe was traveling with her eight-year-old son.

American Airlines has apologized to Rowe and refunded her travel.
