Nude Flight to Mexico.."It's not a safety issue,"

"It's not a safety issue," But it could be normal in time.

Posted on Mon, Jan. 20, 2003 Travel Co. Offers Nude Flight to Mexico
Associated Press


MIAMI - Those who like to bare it all on the beach can get a head start stripping in the air.

A travel agency that specializes in clothing-optional vacations has chartered a 172-seat Boeing 727 for a flight from Miami to Cancun in May. Once the plane reaches its cruising altitude, passengers will be invited to disrobe.

Castaways Travel of Spring, Texas, is touting the trip as the world's first flight for nude passengers. The crew will be clad and the temperature inside the plane's cabin will be regulated to accommodate the nudists, Castaways co-owner Jim Bailey said.

"People are looking for stress relief," Bailey said. "In a nudist environment, everyone is the same."

Vacationers will stay at a nudist resort for a week. Rooms start at $910 weekly, plus $499 for the flight, according to the company's Web site.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said there are no regulations specifically banning nudity aboard an aircraft. "It's not a safety issue," she said.

Some safety issues are being addressed, however - no hot drinks or hot food will be served to nude passengers. And all nude travelers will be asked to keep a towel between themselves and the plane seat.

Ewwwwwwww.....

Noting that in my personal opinion, 98% of the world population (myself included) should keep all of their clothing on at all times, even while bathing, sleeping, and procreating, this fills my mind with very distasteful images.

Somehow I wonder if the travel agency couldn't make a lot more money by offering "adult only" flights, simply so participants can avoid the risk of being seated next to the screaming kid.

Hey. How'd you manage to snap a picture of me in my boudoir?

An acquaintance has a secretary who has a striking resemblance to `ol Jabba. He lives in constant fear that he'll get slapped with a harassment lawsuit for staring at the woman's ankles, but can't stop because of the hope that he'll find Princess Leia chained up in her slavegirl getup down there.....
