JetBlue refuses to let woman on board because she was wearing these shorts [PHOTOS]
JetBlue employees denied a female passenger access to her flight in Boston because of the shorts she was wearing. More specifically, because of their length. 

Maggie McMuffin, who just so happens to be a burlesque dancer in her hometown of Seattle, was rockin' striped thigh-high socks, matching booty shorts and a sweater when she was met with an unexpected turn of events: Crew informed her that they had “discussed it and the pilot had decided that I needed to put something else on or I would not be allowed to board the flight.”

The outfit had gotten no red flags on her flight from NYC to Boston, but it seems the folks manning the Boston to Seattle flight had different standards. Maggie ended up buying new shorts in the terminal and getting reimbursed for them by JetBlue. She also got a $200 credit. Hmm...
“The gate and on board crew discussed the customer’s clothing and determined that the burlesque shorts may offend other families on the flight,” an airline spokesperson explained. “While the customer was not denied boarding, the crew members politely asked if she could change. The customer agreed and continued on the flight without interruption.”

Meanwhile, Maggie told KIRO-TV that she “felt very disrespected” by the whole situation. Do you think JetBlue crossed a line or were Maggie's shorts simply too short?
