Alaska Airlines Flight Attendant Controversy
He says he wore another shirt when asked. But the staff kept confronting her. “Saying I can’t wear it because my stomach shows and it’s inappropriate.”
Ultimately, her story is that Alaska Airlines personnel approached her three times. The third and apparently last time? She told them in frustration, “If you’re going to kick me out, kick me out. I did what you asked me to do.”
According to Howard, the airline followed her after the Alaska Airlines flight attendant’s actions. In another video posted to her TikTok account, she claims the airline refunded her for the three seats she purchased. And he offered her a discount code for future flights.
“We are in contact with the host,” the airline said in a statement provided to insider, adding that he is committed to getting to the bottom of this situation. “Our goal is to provide attentive service to all our guests. When we’re not up to that goal, we do everything we can to get it right. “
Read the fine print
Some of the coverage of this incident, such as this New York Post treatment, focused on Howard’s assessment of the whole thing. Which is that the airline staff kicked her off the flight because her “stomach was showing”. And why, in his words? She is a “fat, tattooed, mixed race woman”.

And with that customer who then publicized the incident on a major TikTok account. On July 31, TikToker Sierra Steadman complained that Alaska Airlines staff also chose her. In particular, to wear a cropped top and shorts. “I have never felt more degraded, ashamed, embarrassed, angry or sad,” she said in the caption to his TikTok video about the accident. “F ALASKA AIRLINES !!!!!!!”
The airline, however, does post some important dress code details on its website that seem applicable here. According to Alaska Airlines website, the dress code is “casual and the requirement is simply a neat and well-groomed appearance. Dirty or frayed clothing and bare feet are never acceptable. You are expected to use common sense, but customer service agents will have the final authority to refuse travel for inappropriate clothing or appearance “.
