A budget airline in Vietnam has been fined VND 20 million ($950) for organizing a parade of bikini-clad models to entertain passengers without prior approval.
According to Digital Journal,
VietJet Air had conducted the impromptu in-flight entertainment on August 3rd during one the flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang.
As for the bikini girls, they weren't flight attendants but contestants in a beauty contest organized by a Vietnamese newspaper. Below is a clip taken during the flight (here's hoping that AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes gets wind of this):
The show was said to have lasted for about three minutes. However, Vietnamese regulators said that because the show had not been approved beforehand, it breached federal aviation and security regulations.
