Hen Party Kicked Off Flight for Wearing ‘Offensive’ T-shirts

Jet2 plane taking off

An 18-strong hen party was thrown off a Jet2 flight for wearing ‘offensive’ T-shirts. The group, aged between 35-60, were asked by the airline to leave the plane, without warning, for wearing T-shirts with ‘offensive’ language which read “b*tches on tour”.  The airline did not give the party the opportunity to change or cover the offending articles of clothing.

The party then had to cough up a further £2,000 for another flight to Majorca. Bride-to-be Miss Green, due to wed in August, said “Part of me doesn’t even want to get married now, I just feel like something will end up going wrong on the day”.

One of the group was told by a crew member that “because of the current terrorism threat they were clamping down on all their rules – one of which is offensive T-shirts”.

Whilst we sympathise with the views of other travellers who did not want to be exposed to the offensive t-shirts, it seems likely that a more amicable solution could have been found rather than kicking the party off their flight (such as asking the party to cover the T-shirts with outer clothing). This seems to be part of a growing trend of airlines taking a very cavalier approach to deciding who can and can’t fly, regardless of booking status.

Do you think Jet2 are taking security measures too far? Have your say!

Big thanks for the £304.70 transferred to my bank account today. My claim related to a three-leg flight from Norwich UK to Phoenix USA via Schiphol. The CAA suggested I had a good case but could do nothing because the delay occurred within Dutch jurisdiction. I twice did battle with KLM/Delta myself but they would not budge. Another claims firm tried but threw in the towel. So congratulations to Claim4Flights for taking it on and winning – and for getting the money transferred into my bank account within two days of notification. Very impressed!
