I was flying from Canada to the US on Monday and was BFing and the FA asked me to cover myself. The exchange went like this:
Him: Excuse me but do you have a blanket to cover yourself while you do that?
Me: (Gave him a strange look and ignored him)
Him: Uh, I take it that's a no?
Me: It's a no.
Him: Well you need to cover yourself while you breastfeed. It's a common courtesy. Other passengers shouldn't have to see your breasts.
Me(still pretty much speechless): Um, uh, well I believe I have the right to do this.
HIm: I'm not against you breastfeeding. You just need to cover yourself with a blanket as a courtesy to others.
He then stood over me until I stopped nursing and then thanked me (!). Several other passengers were looking and making comments ike "She should feed her son!", "a man's gotta eat" etc.
I was so angry and upset and did email AA about his incident (no response yet). The irony is that the flight was almost empty and there was only one passenger besides my DH who could have possibly seen what breast I was exposing (if he had actually ade a point of looking!)
