NEW YORK, July 23 (UPI) — A New York woman’s lawsuit against airline JetBlue claims she was embarrassed by a worker who asked about her underwear and was later removed from the flight.
Financial consultant Malinda Knowles, 27, said in her Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit she was flying to Florida for a business meeting July 13, 2010, when she was approached by a JetBlue supervisor, the New York Post reported Friday.
Knowles, who said her dark denim shorts were concealed by her baggy T-shirt, said the supervisor placed the antenna of his walkie-talkie between her legs.
“He said, ‘I don’t want to see your panties or anything, but do you have any on?’” Knowles said.
