Airline sparks outrage after scantily-clad models put on show
A low-budget Vietnamese airline was fined Tuesday by aviation officials after scantily-clad models put on a sexy show for the country’s under-23 soccer team.
Last Sunday, the team was returning from China after losing to Uzbekistan in the Asian Cup but was celebrated with an in-flight lingerie show on a Vietjet Air plane, Reuters reported.
Pictures of the players with the models went viral online, drawing widespread scrutiny from social media users.
“Who let these escaped chimpanzees on the plane welcome home the under-23 team?” somebody wrote on Facebook.
The Vietnamese airline has been in hot water before for making flight attendants wear sexy clothing during a flight, and for risqué advertising.
The airline’s president Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, who is also the country’s first female billionaire, apologized in a statement on the company’s Facebook page and wrote that the show was unplanned.
“This was an improvised performance by the logistics team that was not part of the company’s program,” Thao wrote

Unless you happened to be on a recent Southwest Airlines flight from Dallas to Las Vegas and Nicholas Demore was your flight attendant.
As his colleague narrated the safety spiel, Demore put his own sassy, sexy spin on “what to do in case of an emergency.”
Pay particular attention to the life vest portion of the briefing. And also to his poor fellow flight attendant who truly had a hard time not losing it to laughter as she narrated his “performance.”
