EX-WWE Wrestler Claims She Was Barred From Business Class Lounge For Outfit But Husband Was Not.

EX-WWE Wrestler Claims She Was Barred From Business Class Lounge For Outfit But Husband Was Not. 


Former WWE wrestler Eva Marie is accusing Qantas Airways of "gender discrimination" after she says she was prevented from entering its business class lounge  at the Melbourne Australian airport  last Thursday because she was dressed in athleisure wear.
The wrestler-turned-fitness-model, known professionally as Eva Marie, said that despite holding a business-class ticket, she was not allowed to enter the lounge beforehand.

"In 2020 @qantas airlines Melbourne won’t allow a woman holding a business class ticket to enter their business class lounge in active wear.," she tweeted on Jan. 16. "My business IS fitness and an active lifestyle. Qantas prefers their women in a dress."



She declared that her husband, who was wearing a T-shirt and gym shorts, was allowed in.


"Head-to-toe gym wear" is strictly forbidden in Qantas' Australian airport lounges, according to the airline's website. Coyle said her issue was not against the company's policy, however. Instead, she took issue with what she saw as a double standard between male and female passengers. 
"Clarification: This is NOT a dress code issue. I support a business's right to enforce equitable dress code standards. However, my husband was allowed in no problem wearing this, while I was kicked out wearing this," Coyle tweeted, sharing side-by-side photos of both herself and her husband, Jonathan Coyle. "My issue is that standards should be equitably enforced."
She later added, "This is NOT a dresscode issue, I support a businesses (sic) right to enforce equitable dresscode standards. However, My husband was allowed in no problem wearing this. While I was kicked out wearing this. My issue is that standards should be equitably enforced."
According to the Qantas website, the following clothing items are not permitted in its business-class lounges: head-to-toe gym wear, beachwear (including board shorts), flip-flops, sleepwear, slippers and UGG boots, revealing, unclean or torn clothing and clothing with offensive slogans.
