Passenger says she was ‘slut-shamed’ on flight by Jetstar staff

A passenger claims she was “slut shamed” for wearing an “inappropriate” outfit on a recent Jetstar flight.

Australian Shoshanna Strykert posted an open letter to Jetstar on Facebook to vent her frustration at the airline’s customer service.

She said she was travelling to visit her mum in hospital in Queensland, Australia.

When she boarded the plane, she claims a Jetstar flight attendant told her that her outfit was “inappropriate”.

Strykert also posted a picture of her outfit on Facebook, which shows her in a cropped top and wide-legged trousers.

The letter continued: “She then told me ‘’do you see any men walking around with their shirts off’?’

“And then added ‘do you have a T-shirt you can put on or I will give you a blanket’.”

“Everybody on the plane was looking at me I was so embarrassed and shocked. A woman sitting behind me felt sorry for me so she offered me her jacket.

“So thank you Jetstar, for slut shaming me and then offering me this in return. I’m so disgusted.”

She also posted a response from Jetstar, which offered her a $50 voucher (around £27.50) as an apology, adding that the airline hoped the voucher would “restore your faith in us”.

The Independent has contacted Jetstar for comment.

Earlier this month, a parenting blogger wrote an open letter to another passenger who she claimed shamed her child on a flight.
