In a bizarre turn of events, a Vietnamese airline VietJetAir organized an in-flight bikini show and was subsequently fined 20 Million Dong (611 British Pounds) for the same. The airline had hired five models, all of whom were contestants in a recent Vietnamese beauty contest, to perform a three minute Hawaiian dance in the aisle.

Despite the happiness of the passengers to be at the receiving end, especially a number of male passengers who expressed their total support for the show by capturing videos on their phones and uploading it on youtube, the Aviation Ministry of the country fined the airline for ‘violating local aviation regulations by organizing an unapproved show on the airline’.

Nguyen Trong Thang, chief inspector of the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam however added that the mobile phones were in flight-safe mode and the clicking of pictures did not pose any risk to the flight movement.

The airline’s desire to bare it all, alright not all but quite a lot of it, on their maiden flight between Ho Chi Minh City and the beachside town of Nha Trang has certainly helped them gain eyeballs, literally, but might make their coffers a bit bare too.
