Olivia Culpo is asked to ‘put on a blouse’ before boarding an American Airlines flight with friends

Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo scolded American Airlines after staff told her her travel outfit was “inappropriate” and demanded that she put on a blouse over her crop top and cycling shorts or risk being banned from her flight to Mexico on Thursday.

The 29-year-old shared details of the altercation on her Instagram stories, where both she and her older sister Aurora – who traveled with her – subjected the airline to their dress code guidelines.

The model’s sister, Aurora, shared a video of Culpo’s ensemble at her own expense, insisting that her sibling looked “cute” and “appropriate” in her athleisure look, which consisted of a black sports bra, black biker shorts and a long black cardigan.

However, American Airlines staff clearly disagreed, with Aurora revealing, “Olivia and I are going to Cabo. Look at her outfit… She looks cute, she looks appropriate, doesn’t she?

“They call her to the station and tell her to put on a blouse or she won’t be able to get on the plane. Tell me, isn’t that so screwed up? American Airlines, I love you so much, [but] please take me to Cabo.

Culpo then re-shared the video on her own Instagram, where she wondered how her outfit could be considered ‘offensive’ and wrote: ‘Oh no I’m confused lol. Is this inappropriate/offensive?’

“WTF?” The 29-year-old flew to Cabo with her boyfriend Christian McCaffrey and her sister Aurora – who shared details of the incident on her Instagram Stories

To add insult to injury, after Culpo topped her ensemble with a large hoodie borrowed from her NFL player, beau Christian McCaffrey, she and her sister ran into a fellow passenger who was also wearing a similar athleisure look, who wasn’t marked by American Airlines personnel.

‘To see? She’s pretty, but she doesn’t care,” Aurora said, filming the unnamed woman’s look, wearing a turquoise sports bra, turquoise leggings, and a long turquoise vest. ‘But [Culpo] have to cover?’

The woman in the turquoise outfit was equally shocked by American Airlines’ treatment of Culpo and joked that the model actually looked a lot more reserved than her, saying, “She’s covered! My tits are out! That’s strange.’

On its website, American Airlines offers very limited guidance on what outfits are deemed appropriate for travel, simply stating in its “Conditions of Carriage” that passengers must “dress appropriately,” adding that “barefoot or offensive clothing is not permitted.” .

Though Culpo agreed to cover up her flight, she didn’t stop questioning the airline’s decision on Instagram, where both she and her sister continued to post about the incident.

After boarding the plane, Aurora shared a photo of Culpo’s boyfriend with his arms in his white T-shirt, joking that the soccer star “froze” because he had to hand over his sweatshirt to his girlfriend.

‘If you freeze’ [because] your lady dress[ed] inappropriate AF,” Aurora captioned the image. “Exactly how Jack died off the Titanic.”

Culpo’s irate sibling then shared an ironic post detailing the various elements of her sister’s ensemble, all of which were from Naked Cashmere, calling it an “American Airlines starter pack.”

“I’m confused,” Aurora captioned the images on her Instagram Story, which showed the former Miss Universe in a long black vest, sports bra and biker shorts. ‘Tell me that’s not so f***ed up’

Once the group arrived in Cabo, their mockery of the airline continued, with Culpo sharing a photo of herself, her boyfriend and her sister in their car from the airport, captioned, “The third wheel adventure continues.

“I’m back in my daring sports outfit and gave Christian his clothes back lol.”

She then posted a vintage photo of American Airlines personnel from 1981, showing them in very conservative uniforms, and boldly wrote that the full-coverage ensembles were her “next airport lewk.”

Adam Anolik, who specializes in travel law, previously told The Washington Post, “Different airlines have their own clothing policies, but they are often vague and leave an exorbitant amount of discretion to airline employees.”

Both Southwest and JetBlue will refuse passengers dressed in “indecent, obscene or clearly offensive” clothing, while Delta says travelers will refuse clothing that “presents an unreasonable risk of offense or annoyance to other passengers.”

Too much skin?  Olivia seemed to be sporting well through the ordeal before reposting her older sisters' Instagram story with the caption,

“I’m sure I’m not the only one who ran away crying at the airport, but it’s the worst experience I’ve ever had,” she said. “I just want to be able to go home.”

“If both of your parents have COVID and you try to get home to help them, but suddenly your already approved dog is not allowed to fly with you.

“I never wanted to be this person and I’ve always been the biggest @jetblue fan, but I’m so upset right now. He has flown with this airline so many times and it has never been a problem,” Culpo wrote on her Instagram post.

Jet Blue didn’t explain why the dog couldn’t board as before, but suggested it might have to do with the dog not being a trained service animal, Fox Business reports.

The airline said in a statement: “Our crew members are allowed to ask legal questions and confirm the qualifications of a trained service animal at any time during travel.”

“We are working to consistently enforce this policy, but a customer could be stopped from traveling at any time if it is determined that an animal does not meet the required qualifications,” they concluded.

Culpo often posts with her dog, whom she named Oliver Sprinkles.  She claims the dog was able to board two separate JetBlue flights in Ma
