Lady Sues JetBlue After Being Barred From Flight

Financial consultant Malinda Knowles, 28, is suing JetBlue for booting her from a flight to Florida. The incident occurred after a JetBlue employee asked Knowles whether she was wearing underwear. She was, and denim cut-offs too, under a baggy tee, but even after being forced to prove her wearing-pants status by lifting up her shirt for the employee — who Knowles also says waved a walkie-talkie in her crotch — she was told the flight's pilot wouldn't take her back on board. The reason for Knowles not being allowed on the flight remains unclear. "I really feel like the guy just wanted to demean me in some way," she said. "Maybe he thought I was cute. Even so, it was totally inappropriate." [NYDN]
