A mysterious air hostess who promises prurient “in-flight entertainment” in exchange for proper consideration has been forced to move underground after her gig went viral online. I tend to question whether she is real in the first place.
British Airways Probes Prostitute Flight Attendant
“AirHostess71” (as she refers to herself) offers a number of in-flight and post-flight perks that fall well outside the job description of a flight attendant. She refers to herself as “A classy, but very naughty flight attendant filling fetishes, wants and needs,” and also sells clothing articles. Per the UK Sun:
The attendant, who also sells her knickers online, lures in clients by taking risque snaps mid-air in her uniform.
…She charges punters £25 for a pair of her knickers, but the fee rises steeply for one-to-one services.
…She says on her blog: “If you ever want adult entertainment on-board, all you have to do is give me a sum of money and you’ll be treated to a whole different experience of your choice.”
When her “second job” went viral, she took down most of her social media accounts, though she left her Facebook page (and added some additional risqué pictures over the last 24 hours):
Dear passenger, I am your in flight entertainment. What would you like me to do? https://t.co/7Rcvpu03fL
British Airways is now investigating the alleged flight attendant, noting, “We expect the highest standard of behavior from all of our colleagues at all times, and we are investigating the claims.”
Good luck with that…
My Hunch: Not A Real Flight Attendant
We see several pictures of “AirHostess71” in a British Airways flight attendant uniform. There are also pictures clearly taken onboard an airplane. Were she to be real, it certainly would not be the first time a flight attendant has offered additional services onboard in exchange for cash.
But it’s also not all that hard to obtain a flight attendant uniform. Now I’m not sure anyone could get away with “impersonating” a flight attendant onboard, but we saw last week how easy it is to stage something on an airplane that looks very real but in reality is very fake.
Maybe this woman is just an enterprising member of the oldest profession in the world and saw a market opportunity to play the role of a flight attendant. Other news reports on this incident suggest most of her business comes in London…which of course doesn’t require a job with British Airways.
I think the fascination with stories likes these comes not from the sexual side of the equation, but more the curiosity or incredulity of how someone could get away with this onboard a plane. The right and left image above are allegedly of the flight attendant in question. Will that be enough for BA to identify her?
