Hooters Air And Their "Additional Services"

Sat Apr 02, 2005 8:20 pm

Was watching a programme on Channel Five in the UK last night about the history of Cabin Crew and how the job has changed over the years and is no longer glamourous!

They went on to say how men use to fantasise about Stewardess' and airlines in the 60's promoted the Stewardess' in advertisements and made the whole appeal of flying very sexy and how these days how it has changed. For example these days cabin crew have to put up with disruptive passengers, quick turnarounds and the budget concept.

They then went on to talk about Hooters Air which I have never heard of before and said there is still an airline where male passengers can fantasise about cabin crew. They showed the normal plain cabin crew and then they said on every flight there are two "Hooter" Girls that are busty blondes that make the male passengers fantasys come true.

They showed the interior of a Hooters 737 and showed how it had a bed at the rear of the aircraft and these girls provide "Personal Services" - Is this true?

Does Hooters offer a mile high club with their Hooter Girls? I would have thought nothing like this would be aloud!

I'd say that's ridiculously a lie. Hooters Air (Pace) would never be able to place a bed and well.. offer such irregular services on domestic US flights out of golf destinations in North Carolina!

No it is not an April Fools and BTW I have read the post in the forum not to post April Fools!

The programme was on Channel 5 last night at 10.10pm in the UK.

There has been numerous threads about the '' Hooters Girls '', and from what I can gather, there are two on every flight. They just help the cabin crew with drinks, snacks etc. As well as being beautiful. Like was said above, Hooters Air is Pace Airlines, and they certainly don't provide 'services''

Ah.... Channel 5, that explains it.... Big grin

Hooters Girls aren't hookers, strippers, or anything of the sort. They're normal waitresses, and I have seen some less endowed than others. The notion that Hooters Air is little more than an airborne prostitution ring is simply moronic. The Hooters Girls on Hooters Air Flights aid normal Pace FAs with drinks and snacks, as Gofly stated, as well as do little trivia contests and the like, with the winners usually getting gift certificates to the restaurant chain.

Giles,
I watched the same programme as you, but there were no beds at the back of the aircraft!

Their website, Hootersair.com, has a lot of details about their service, none of which requires the use of a bed. Over-active imagination?

I have been blessed to live all my life in a wonderful city that has a higher per capita ratio of "Hooters" restraunts than anywhere else in the world. "Hooters", for the uninitiated, is an establishment fit for the family or a bunch of guys enjoying a sporting event on television. In addition to chicken wings, beer, burgers, beer, and other "manly" victuals, the highlight is being served in an atmosphere of political incorrectness that is difficult to come across in this day. The ladies are all lovely and generally wearing less than formal business attire. They might get out a hoola-hoop, play volleyball out back, have a bikini contest, show up at local events, or just sit and talk with you, but they are there only to do their job. I always feel compelled to leave an enormous tip.  Wink

Hooters Air is an airborne extension of this concept. Typically they only fly to popular golf or fun destinations here in The South like Myrtle beach. This generally means a plane full of well to do guys on holiday and a little extra help for the regular FA's is not a bad thing. Let's all be men here for a minute and admit that they don't have to do anything except look great to brighten the trip. They are always very friendly ladies and if they stop and chat well that makes it so much the better.

But the potential for "Red-Light Air" might be there!  Smile
