Vietnamese airline fined for mid-flight bikini show

2012-08-09 10:03

Hanoi - A private airline in Vietnam was fined for having women dance through the cabin in bikinis during a flight, an official said Thursday.

About 10 women in bikini tops and sarongs sashayed down the aisle of a VietJet Air flight Sunday from Ho Chi Minh City to the coastal city of Da Nang.

The budget airline was fined 1,000 dollars for hosting the show without official permission, said chief inspector of the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, Nguyen Trong Thang.

"They should have registered [with us] before they held the show," Thang said. "This is the first time an airline has organized a bikini dance aboard a flight in Vietnam."

The authorities took action after videos of the in-flight show were circulated on the internet.

The show was held to celebrate the company's first flight to Da Nang, said an official from the airline who declined to be named.

"It was the first flight to a beach town, so we came up with the idea of getting a number of girls in bikinis to dance and make passengers happy to improve our customer service," he said

      Please give them a licence to fly between JHB and CT, They can even take out the seats, to make more space for the show. I am sure nobody minds to stand for the 2 hour flight !!!

      Sour grapes cause you weren't there, didn't see any of the passengers agreeing with you, looked like they were quite enjoying it.

      rlong1952 - 2012-08-09 13:10

      Vietnamese ladies are amazing as are all South East Asian ladies, I suggest you come and have a look and then you won't complain about them being fat. Eish those ladies were not fat at all.

    Excellent Women's Day story. Forget justice for abused women. Forget gender equality in the work-place. Let's focus on our old favourite - oogling half-naked women.
