Unpaid Flight Attendants Bare It All For Cash & Publicity

Former flight attendants for defunct Spanish airline Air Comet say they’re owed around €7 million (about $9.5 million) in unpaid wages. So as a combination fundraiser/PR stunt, the women decided to re-enact every ’80s party movie and release a racy calendar.

The calendar, which retails for around $20, shows the ladies of Comet Air in various states of undress, posing near and occasionally draped on airplanes.

“We are just demanding our rights to receive what is ours, we each have eight or nine months of unpaid salaries,” former Comet Air attendant Adriana Ricardo told Reuters.

While the calendars have gotten the unpaid attendants a heaping helping of PR exposure, it’s unlikely that it will do anything to get any more money from Comet, which collapsed in December when 9 of its planes were impounded. The erstwhile airline reportedly owes over $200 million to creditors, so the attendants had better pray these calendars go through several printings.
