AFP reports that the Vietnamese carrier VietJet hosted a Hawaiian-themed dance contest to celebrate the airline's maiden flight between Ho Chi Minh City and the tourist hub of Nha Trang, but got in trouble -- not for the parade of scantily-clad women -- but for making the mistake of not first gaining permission by the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam.

The airline "violated local aviation regulations" by organizing "an unapproved show on a flight," Nguyen Trong Thang, chief inspector of the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam said.

The low-cost carrier has been fined $1000 for hosting the mid-flight contest.

The five women who participated in the beauty contest performed a three-minute dance on a Aug. 3 flight while passengers recorded the show on camera phones and later posted clips online, AFP reports.

The incident has caused a stirred in Vietnam, a conservative country, after photographs and video clips spread on the Internet...

The concept sounds great, but given the stewardesses I’ve had on the flights in the last several years, it would be a nightmare. I would never want to see them in a bikini. The good old days of Pan Am are long gone.

In the old days, the stews would brush you with their breasts as they squeezed by.

Now, they just pummel you with their fat asses.

Maybe this is what President Reagan meant when he said: “Vietnam was a noble cause”. By losing that war, we lost 2 decades of access to them. I’ve always believed that if I had fought there, I would have come home with a wife.

I knew a guy who came home with a Vietnamese wife. She’s much older now but still very cute—and she owns a good deal of north San Diego County. They’re still very happily married and are great-grand parents.

Yea, I’ve always had a weakness for women from that part of the world. I know others too that did the same - you get a REAL wife, rather than an angry feminist with a chip on her shoulder.

“Now, they just pummel you with their fat asses.”

I was part of a class that flew to Yuma, AZ., on various flights, last fall and an individual recalled his flight experience.

He said that one of the above described flight attendances was coughing without covering her mouth and when preparing food, she stooped to retrieve a tray for heating and her butt crack was showing where upon she reached back and scratched it and proceeded to continue preparing food without cleaning her hands.

The low-cost carrier has been fined $1000 for hosting the mid-flight contest.

Money well spent.

Pacific Southwest Airlines (PSA). Without a doubt, they had the most attractive stuardesses with the shortest outfits. The best part is that one could go to the airport, board the plane, and purchase a ticket from one of the them after the plane took off. No reservation needed. San Diego fare to LA was $10. Fare to San Francisco was $25. Planes left every hour.

Nha Trang (same bay as Cam Ranh) is probably the best site in Viet Nam. The dance show could only be a nice enhancement. It’s only about a one hour flight.

I heard Nha Trang is very nice. I was about 147 miles down the coast from there in a resort village called Mui Ne which is near the city of Phan Thiet.

As a kid, I flew Braniff Airlines back during the brief period when Braniff featured the Air Strip on its longer flights. The flight attendants started the flight in several layers of velour with big 1960s zippers. At different points during the flight, 'The Stripper' by David Rose and His Orchestra would play, the flight attendants would step out into the aisle and seductively begin to unzip and remove their outer layer of uniform. After about four strips, they went from from a full caftan-like uniform to hot pants, go-go boots, and a brief top.
