Supposedly Virgin is saying this was a mistake, I'm not totally buying it.

Virgin is not our flag carrier. BA is.

Today, when this story broke, I wondered what their policy states re burkas.  What if I flew Virgin and I were offended by a burka.  Is that I wonder why they came up with the black PJ outfit--for ME flights?

Virgin made a mistake with the demand. The vet made a bigger mistake by complying

I'd have to disagree viz. the vet.  If she didn't have alternate transportation arrangements available, then she did what she had to do to get where she was going, and she respected the otherwise outrageous demands of this airline instead of making a big stink and causing a fight.

I think you are right but that was my point. She acquiesced rather than was forced. It's not that I don't understand why she did it.
