After being told to cover up on American Airlines, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo flew home from Mexico to Los Angeles on Delta, donning an outfit even more risqué than on her outbound journey. Delta did not question her wardrobe choice and the model made sure to rub it in.
Olivia Culpo Flies Home On Delta Air Lines, This Time Without Wardrobe Drama
After a week in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with her sister Aurora and boyfriend Christian McCaffrey, Culpo flew back to Los Angeles. This time, though, she flew Delta Air Lines.
On her outbound journey, American Airlines had told her that her outfit..tights and a sports bra…were too risqué to fly, even though she had a loose fitting cover up over it. She ended up putting on her boyfriend’s sweatshirt in order to fly and made waves after her sister bitterly attacked AA on social media, particularly when another passengers (of a different body type and skin color) was allowed to board with substantially the same outfit.
During her time in Mexico, Culpo trolled American Airlines with an Instagram post captioned, “Please use caution while using the overheard bins as items may have shifted during flight.”

Her sister reported no problems on the return flight.
Culpo becomes the highest-profile travelers to encounter the wrath of American Airlines’ selective fashion police. We can certainly debate the wisdom of wearing such an outfit on a plane, but the bottom line is that she covered what had to be covered and at least one other passenger on the same flight was not stopped even though she was wearing substantially the same thing.
Moral of the story? Until American Airlines more clearly defines its dress code, you might consider flying another airline if you wish to wear workout attire onboard.
