MOSCOW, Feb. 19 - Russian budget airline Avianova announced it will be hiring clowns, actors and musicians to amuse and entertain passengers during flights.
Avianova officials said the first in-flight live entertainment will take place Saturday on a flight from Moscow to Krasnodar.
The airline said it was inspired to install stages on the planes when it was forced to reduce the number of seats from 180 to 159 because of a change in Russian customs policy.
As if flying wasn’t scary enough.
Alternate headline... ‘Russia offers free airfare to American politicians’
Avianova 'flight attendants' disembark wearing 'official' uniforms
clowns, musicians and actors...that’s pretty much the Democrats.
Those were supposed to be clowns? Oh, I thought it was just passengers flipping and rolling down the aisle after tripping on the untacked and wrinkled carpeting. That, or passengers falling out of their seats because the seat belts don’t latch or the backs aren’t secured and flop down onto the knees of the person behind. Yes, btdt and didn’t even get a t-shirt proclaiming I survived. They’d do better chopping down the trees growing up in the middle of the runway cracks and hauling off the burned out carcasses of crashed planes they leave along the runways in full view of the passengers as the take off and land.
. .only they ain’t funny!
“You speak Russian?”
“Yes, a little.”
I was going to suggest "Russia Job Offers Target WI Democrat Solons."
Jet Blue already tried the Clown idea
These clowns should give everyone more legroom.

“Please, Citizen Pilot Person, say you were joking about not knowing how to fly this plane!!”
“Well, I played a pilot on t.v but the program crashed! Getit? Crashed!! woo..woo...wooo!”.
Taken on January 10th, the mere inches of runway left before this plane gets airborne clearly depict two things: 1) Russians are strict stewards of capital only building as much runway as absolutely necessary and 2) Once in place, Russians focus on high asset utilization, using as much of the runway as possible to generate outsized returns.
Flakes on a plane?
LOL. Good one!
Fly the Bozo skies.
It would also depend on headwinds direct, or not, to the runway.
Could be worse. Could be mimes.
That’s a good looking runway. Where’re the trees growing out of the craters? Wow, the markings are a vast improvement over no markings at all!
OTOH, those mere inches before the water shows they still haven’t improved their flying. I don’t know about today but back in the day there was no flying a straight line from Point A to Point B because they followed the roads. Heck, they even obeyed red lights in mid air and made 90 degree turns at the corners. No lie, to conserve fuel, they would cut their engines and you’d float down in silence, and then they’d crank them up about tree line and up you’d climb again. Total truth. I am not exaggerating.
