Why your outfit choice could bar you from boarding flights

Tips to avoid being grounded Due to Your Outfit on Jet2, Ryanair, TUI, and EasyJet

Jet2, Ryanair, TUI and Easyjet passengers face being banned from flights - due to an outfit choice. A flight attendant and airline worker has revealed the real reason your outfit could get you banned from the plane this summer.

In an article in CNN Travel, Mary Jo Manzanares, a travel writer and former flight attendant of 33 years, revealed exactly why certain types of clothing are likely to see passengers denied boarding from a flight to your summer holiday destination.

Manzanares told CNN Travel: "You’ve got to make your priority resolving things on the ground, making sure that there is no aggression. When you go to 30,000 feet, you may [have] passenger conversation or banter or inappropriate comments between passengers, add in a little alcohol, and you may be making an unscheduled landing. And no one wants that."

Speaking out to the Sun newspaper a flight attendant said: "We're well within our rights to prevent people getting on the flight and it's used frequently for people who aren't dressed in a way we would deem to be acceptable."

In a warning to Jet2, Ryanair, TUI and Easyjet passengers, they went on: "There are some obvious examples here, including t-shirts with swear words or offensive logos on them, which people are regularly asked to cover up, or remove, before they get on board."

Most airlines don't provide official guidance, so it can be difficult to work out what they would deem unacceptable for a flight. But avoid dirty or torn clothes and laidback outfits and void any clothing with slogans that may be deemed offensive or contain any rude language. Some airlines do allow flip-flops, but others may not accept you on board if you're rocking 'beach attire'.

And remember: if a country has specific laws or local customs around clothing, then an airline may expect passengers to adhere to these before boarding.
