Brenda has spoken publicly about the incident and claims she was left so upset she is having trouble sleeping. She claimed Spirit Airlines staff told her to ‘cover up’ on the flight from New Orleans, Louisiana, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, but the company denies her claims.
Brenda, a waitress, told the TV programme Inside Edition that flight attendants first accused her of being intoxicated and ‘loud and belligerent’, which she denies.
She said: “They asked me if I was drunk. I said ‘No, I am fine’.”Brenda claims the cabin crew’s attention then turned to her breasts.
She said: “They mentioned my body was too exposed and it was obvious it was my breasts and said, ‘You need to cover up’.
Fellow passenger Cathy Supp wrote a Facebook post in which she backed Brenda’s claims. Ms Supp was kicked off the plane for defending Brenda.
Spirit Airlines has said that the passenger’s cleavage “played absolutely no role in her removal”.
It claimed she was taken off the plane because she was intoxicated and other passengers complained about her behaviour.
The airline also denied she was kicked off the plane to make room for another crew member.
