Passenger Removed from Delta Flight for Braless Outfit Calls for Policy Revision

Lisa Archbold found herself at the center of controversy when she was escorted off a Delta Air Lines flight for not wearing a bra. Her attorney, Gloria Allred, is now calling for a meeting with Delta to discuss a change in policy. The incident took place in January, but gained more attention after Archbold obtained legal representation from Allred, a prominent figure in women’s rights cases.

Archbold was wearing a loose white t-shirt when airline staff took issue with her clothing as she was due to fly from Salt Lake City to San Francisco. She was not questioned when boarding the plane, but was later escorted off by a gate agent who deemed her outfit “offensive” and “revealing.” Archbold expressed feeling targeted and humiliated by the incident and questioned Delta’s policy regarding what constitutes offensive clothing.

In a letter to Delta’s president, Allred raised concerns about how Archbold’s attire was handled and requested a meeting to discuss a practical solution to avoid similar situations in the future. Archbold believes that her clothing was no different from what a man might wear and should not have been an issue.

Delta Air Lines previously apologized to Archbold for the incident, but Allred is pushing for further action to address the situation and prevent similar occurrences. As of now, Delta Air Lines has not responded to requests for comment on the matter.
