News.com.au reported that the captain of a Virgin Australia plane insulted a passenger on her revealing clothing, forcing her to cover up.
The pilot explained to the passenger that he does not like tourists “who strip their bodies.”
According to 23-year-old passenger Catherine Bampton, when she was waiting to board the plane, an employee told her that the plane’s captain was refusing to accept her among the passengers on the flight because of her clothes.

At this point, she stated, she felt offended, and that the rest of the passengers “stared at her in surprise.”
She added, “I was very shocked and surprised that my clothes were never revealing.”
And in the end the girl was forced to wear a jacket over her shoulder, and only after that was she allowed to enter the plane.
The girl stressed that she would file a complaint to the airline’s management, and would demand the pilot to apologize.
