A woman was told she would be banned from a flight to New York unless she buttoned up her top to cover her revealing cleavage.

The woman, identified only as Avital, said she declined to cover up due to the hot climate and boarded the plane anyway, in spite of the warning by an airline worker.

“I was stunned more than anything,” Avital told CBS NewYork.

“We had been chatting about the experience of being up and awake at 4:30 a.m., and then her tone changed quite suddenly.

"It wasn’t until I walked away from the check-in counter that her words made an impact. Then I got indignant and self-conscious.”

She added: “[I didn't] think there was anything that special about the outfit I was wearing. It had topped 115 degrees in Las Vegas when I was there, and most people were scantily dressed just to stay cool. I hadn’t even considered that it would have been a big deal,” cbslocal.com reported.
