Broke Mexicana stewardesses launch racy calendar

Female flight attendants from ailing Mexican airline Mexicana have launched a racy aviation calendar in an attempt to ease their financial worries.

The 2011 calendar features the 10 women clad in bikinis and sunglasses draped over parts of an aircraft. Its first run sold out before the launch.
More from the BBC here.

Another thread that's useless without pictures. (Although the video on the BBC link above is useful.)

According to some associates, I undoubtedly had better looking MX FAs on some of my MX flights in the first quarter of this year than are shown in this calendar.

Huh? You need your associates to tell you whether the FA's on your flights are good looking?

Most of us are able to figure that out by ourselves.

So you're saying that the primary Inflight Entertainment on Mexicana involved pax ranking and rating the FA's? Interesting....

For passengers stuck in economy class on MX flights, not much in the way of good in-flight entertainment of the audio-visual sort. Fortunately, I ended up in business class on those longer MX flights where the IFE was better, as drooling over the meat in business class wasn't for me either.

Post-flight stories aren't all suitable for a general audience board like this.
