If you’re flying this summer to the US, be prepared to pay a supplementary fee to grab your seat beside that hot cabin crew of your dreams.
As per the newly unveiled policy by the Americana Airlines, passengers will have an option to choose their seats close to a sexy Air Hostess with an extra charge of 100$, when booking online at the airline’s website.
“This is the kinkiest way of travelling,” senior executive of the airline, Chris McConnell, told The Wadiyan. “So far, it was a privilege accessible only to the elite frequent fliers. Now we want to give everybody a chance.”
In addition, while explaining the policy in detail, Chris McConnell said the airline did not want to offend its loyal frequent fliers. “Our elite frequent fliers will be better rewarded too. They will have the option to sit in the cockpit behind the pilot for five minutes before takeoff,” he said.
According to travel and tourism experts, airlines are looking for multiple ways to raise revenue to offset rising fuel costs. “In the last few years, they have added fees for checked baggage, watching TV, skipping security lines and boarding early,” says Jerry Slims, a cafeteria owner at the JFK International Airport in New York City. “But this new plan is even more interesting. It makes overnight flying more rewarding.”
Our source in the airline industry indicates that a pay-per-view pornography option might be added to the in-flight entertainment systems by 2014 in most flights.
On a similar note, a recent research by Bharat Singh, an associate professor in Some University in Norway, urged airline companies to implement innovative plans to monetize on the economy class travel experience.
The study suggests implementing a Pay-As-You-Poop pricing for toilet usage on flights, where an electronic system will quantify the amount of dump released by individual passengers and will be charged on their credit card accordingly. Singh argues that as the onboard toilet facility is an expensive luxury, defecating passengers should pay more for their travel.
