London, Jan 2 (ANI): An airline that lets couples join the Mile High club has been grounded after safety concerns were expressed by the Civil Aviation Authority.
Mile High Flights, based in Gloucestershire, has been giving couples the chance to make love in the clouds for 640 pounds for the last two years, but has been refused a new license in lieu of the pilots' security.
CAA chiefs said the in-flight action was "too distracting" for its pilots.
"I'm not giving up on what was a popular business idea because someone at the CAA doesn't like the sound of what goes on in our plane," the Daily Express quoted Mike Crisp, 36, who launched the firm in 2008, as saying.
"Joining the Mile High Club is something a lot of couples dream of and we were providing the chance to fulfil that particular fantasy. In our two years trading we had people from all walks of life wanting to join the club, from 21st birthday flights to 60th birthday ones," he said.
"It is a shame we've had to stop because of some prudish snobbery on the part of the CAA." (ANI)
