This week model and former Miss Universe Olivia Kalpo was asked to put on extra clothes before boarding a flight to Mexico.
Kalpo’s sister, Aurora Kalpo, shared an Instagram story showing her sister’s dress while waiting at the airport on Thursday, telling followers “Olivia and I are going to Cabo and look at her outfit.”
“She looks adorable. She looks fit. “Tell me it’s not so. American Airlines, I love you so much. Please take me to Cabo.”
The model shared a video of her sister on Instagram, “Oh no I’m confused lol. Is this inappropriate / objectionable?” She then put on a gray sweatshirt belonging to her boyfriend, Carolina Panthers player Christian McCaffrey, and boarded the plane.
American Airlines declined to comment.
Kalpo reached out to representatives for comment.

Aurora jokes about the Kalpo incident on Instagram, sharing a picture of McCaffrey holding a shirt to his shirt.
Referring to the 1997 film, he wrote, “Your woman’s dress is inappropriate when you freeze. How Jack died from the Titanic.”
According to American Airlines’ “carriage conditions”, passengers “must dress appropriately; bare feet or aggressive clothing are not permitted.”
This is not the first time airlines have taken notice by asking passengers to change or put on extra clothes before the flight. In 2019, American Airlines apologized to a passenger and offered her a refund after the airline criticized her for covering her dress.
