There are different ways to travel. You can ride the bus, drive your own car, rent a van, or why not just head out to your nearest airport and book your plane ticket? Airplane flight is a very convenient and fast way to reach your destination.

But how about if we throw in some flight attendants with just their bikinis on?
Or would you rather select the “Cuddle Class”?
How about flying naked? Yes, literally naked!

Not just for calendar photo shoots, it’s during actual flights.

The Vietnamese airline, VietJet Air, features young, attractive, and bikini-clad flight attendants.

No question why Vietnam’s only privately-owned airline caused controversies in the aviation industry. Female VietJet employees in colorful bikinis even perform for passengers during inaugural flights to beach locations. The publicity stunt has earned the company huge profits, but also plenty of criticisms.

These ‘bikini performances’ are more likely a featured bonus on certain routes. According to Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, CEO of VietJet Aviation (soon to become billionaire), the bikini-clad models on flights are meant to represent empowerment amidst the nation’s conservative culture.

From a business perspective, the bikini image was a success, as VietJet is all set to surpass national carrier Vietnam Airlines as the nation’s biggest domestic carrier.

No more, less clothes. It’s a nude flight, indeed.

In 2008, a German travel agency took the country’s love of free body culture to the highest level— the world’s first nude airline. Passengers had to be fully clothed while boarding and disembarking the aircraft. However, they were free to wander around the cabin as bare as they can be after takeoff. The flights were a part of a summer day trip from the German city of Erfurt to a popular Baltic Sea resort.

Economy? First Class? How about “Cuddle Class”?

According to the airline’s website, the so-called “Skycouches” would be perfect for couples who want some extra room or families with small children. The Skycouch is a trio of economy seats that together create a flexible space for whatever you want it to be — an area to relax and stretch out, or for the kids to play in. It’s like having your very own couch on the plane.

Free massage, anyone?

Who would have thought that you could get a personal masseuse on your economy flight? Not even first class air passengers can expect that. But Air Malta travellers in economy cabins gets a treat of relaxing head rubs and hand massages on flights between Gatwick and Malta—completely free of charge.

It started on July 2015, when two professional therapists welcomed passengers to flights to and from Gatwick with various beauty product samples, and later provided hand, feet, and neck massages to relaxing music piped in through headphones.

The “Sky Spa” services in partnership with Maltese spa brand Myoka Spas, will be available “on selected flights”, according to Air Malta. They said that it’s “just the beginning” of a series of similar projects that it will be launched shortly to enhance customer experience.

In honor of the gay movement, WOW Airline’s “GAY” is the latest entrant into the gay vehicular contest. Iceland’s airline is popular for its pink-and-purple themed planes. The new giant pink Airbus A330 serves a route to San Francisco as announced in February 2016.

CEO Skúli Mogensen explained the decision to christen the plane TF-GAY, saying: “One of our pilots came to me and suggested this name, and I thought it was a cool idea, so we went ahead with it.” He added that the name fits perfectly into their concept to create a modern family out of our airplanes, thus, following TF-MOM, TF-DAD, TF-SIS, TF-BRO, TF-SON, and TF-KID.

When asked about people who might not want to travel on a big pink gay plane, he answered, “If I were worried or scared of what people might say about me or what I do, then WOW air wouldn’t exist.

“Prejudice and narrow-mindedness are usually the result of ignorance and an inferior complex. So such views judge themselves.”
