[inline:girl] Everyone loves to b*tch and moan about the hassles of air travel these days: the long security lines, the lack of leg room, spartan in-flight beverage service, the frustrating fees, shitty in-flight entertainment, and, of course, the endless wait at the luggage carousel while unionized baggage handlers finish up their smoke break before off-loading the plane. However, the airline stewardesses of Spain's Air Comet seem to the have the right idea when it comes to giving passengers what they want. Nine Spanish air stewardess recently stripped off their clothes to pose in a provocative nekked wall calendar. According to the Daily Mail, the ladies created the calendar to protest their employer and draw international media attention to Air Comet's "plight." The niche carrier once offered cheap, direct flights to South America from Europe but has been grounded since December. The Mail reports that the airline has managed to rake up a debt of about 160 million euros. To make matters worst, the German bank HSH Nordbank asked a British court to impound nine of their aircraft. Now the airline owes its workers over $7 million in back wages and stewardesses claim they haven't been paid in over eight months. Thus, the solution to their financial woes is what so many have resorted to in desperate times: adult entertainment.
O.K. So the photo-spread is relatively soft core and barely -- if even -- adult entertainment, but you can support their cause by purchasing the nudie calendar here. The price is about $24 and only 1,000 are being sold. It's just too bad it didn't come out earlier in the year so we could add it to our 13 Hottest Nude Charity Calendars list. An attendant who appears in the calendar told Rueters, "We are just demanding our rights to receive what is ours, we each have eight or nine months of unpaid salaries." Unfortunately, it seems the stewardesses recruited a hack-job graphic designer to quickly whip together sub-par images for the wall calendar (We'll give him/her a break -- they were probably working pro bono). There's also some speculation the nekked airline stewardess calendar may be an elaborate April Fools' hoax (the BBC claims it isn't). If it is, it's certainly is one of the sexier ones. After the jump, a video and 12 pics of nekked stewardesses posing in an airplane cabin, cockpit, and, um, on turbines at 30,000 feet in the air.
