US Airways has apologized after a flight attendant reportedly refused to hang an Army Ranger’s uniform jacket in the aircraft’s closet.
WSOC-TV reported that First Sgt. Albert Marle was boarding US Airways Flight 1930 between Portland, Ore. and Charlotte Thursday when he asked the attendant if she could hang up his jacket to keep it from wrinkling. The flight attendant refused, claiming that the closet was for first-class passengers only.
An airline spokesman initially claimed that there was not enough space in the closet for the jacket, but passengers disagreed.
“She kept saying it was against company policy…it wasn’t against company policy,” first-class passenger Cliff Autrey told “Fox & Friends” Saturday. He said enlistees like Marle deserve everyone’s support.
