Air hostesses strip to protest unpaid salary
Madrid, Apr 1: Irked by the non payment of their nine months salary, air hostesses of Spanish airline posed nude for a calendar to highlight their predicaments, said one of the flight attendants turned models on Wednesday, Mar 31.
The air hostesses of Air Comet attendants were seen posing provocatively for a calender, both in and out of the airline cabins, including on top of a jet turbine for one of the photographs. Major portion of the calendar have been splashed in the Spanish media.
"We are just demanding our rights to receive what is ours, we each have eight or nine months of unpaid salaries," attendant Adriana Ricardo, one of the cabin crew who appears in the calendar said in a news agency report.
Air Comet, owned by chairman of Spain's main employers' association, CEOE, Gerardo Ferran, filed for bankruptcy after nine of its airlines were seized by a British court at the request of German bank HSH Nordbank.
