Budget airline VietJet Air was fined $1,000 (20 million dong) for staging a bikini show on its maiden flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang on the southern coast of Vietnam on August 3rd.
A YouTube video (see below) shows young women in open vests and red bikini tops dancing down the aisle and handing out teddy bears as gleeful male passengers smile and snap photographs on the flight.
The event was to commemorate that first flight to Nha Trang. The fine reportedly was levied because the airline did not receive official approval.
The girls danced to the song “I’m crazy for banana.” :)
Official approval? Maybe more like they should have let the government officials know ahead of time so they could make sure they were on the flight! :)
