New Security Measures for Airlines

2006-08-26 18:26:31.597803+00 by ziffle 5 comments

Well aircraft security has come to its logical conclusion.


This should reduce terrorism and get rid of the Burka for ever! Luggage pickup should be very interesting as well.

Now I wanna go to Europe just so I can fly that airline!

Castaways Travel, which offers many nude and clothing-optional cruises every year, did a Naked-Air flight in 2003; dunno if they've done any since. Seems like the rational response in these restrictive times.

Re the Naken-Air flight: would you have liked to be sitting on those seats for the very next regular flight?

Don't forget your towel.

Yes, I wouldn't mind at all. If you read the article, you'd see that everyone was given their own special-for-the-trip towel, and a special-for-the-trip seatback protector was installed. Naturists/nudists all know that you don't sit on anything other than your towel (unless you're in water or on grass or rocks or whatnot): after all these years I have trouble trying to force myself to sit naked on anything without a towel. I suspect it would be more hygienic after this particular flight than after any "normal" flight where babies are throwing up and toddlers are crunching their cookies into the seat and whatnot. I suspect the intention is to clean airplane upholstery between flights, so there shouldn't be any problem.

If they do it again, I'm there.
