LCC VietJet Fined For Sexy Show Of Girls In Flight

Thu Aug 09, 2012 1:02 pm

The inaugural flight of Vietnamese LCC Vietjet will cost a fine from the authorities after a group of 10 young girls in bikini perform a show during the flight.

I will paid a bonus to help the airline with the fine

After watching the video a second time, I really can't see something offensive, the bikinis are very discrete, although the Vietnamese culture could be much more conservative ( ? ). Now, If the song of the video saying the banana this and the banana that was not only in the video but also during the show, well, maybe that is crossing some limits    

The article didn't say if the fine is for safety reasons, moral issues or any specific situation.... anyone with a hint on what basis had the authorities for the fine ??

The fine was only 1000 USD, very economical way to get good publicity.

That looks a bit fake to me. Too many different camera angles. Not complaining though.

The flight is to CAM RANH, the old us naval base (later Russian naval base) in Vietnam, which is now a tourist destination with great beaches . . . similar to Da Nang.

IMO, as somebody who's not "into that," I don't see what's so offensive. Sure, they're in bikinis.. if you don't like it just look away.

Quoting Gonzalo (Reply 4):
although the Vietnamese culture could be much more conservative ( ? ).

It could be that, in general Vietnamese culture is *slightly* more conservative than American culture when it comes to attire, etc. The things that set off my grandma are questionable (or barely questionable, for that matter). In fact, if you look at the guy at 1:05, that is the VERY face my grandma gives when she disapproves of something..

But, if you look at the video a fair amount of people seem to recording the event.. and most of them look Vietnamese to me. Older generation is much more conservative, younger generation is more in line if not more liberal than most Americans.

(perspective of someone who's half Vietnamese)

I hate to break it to you but that scene is from a Japanese adult film. It wasn't filmed by a voyeur.

Hi guys,

I am from VN so I will have a little more information about this topic to share with you guys.

This show was organize by VietJet Air for the Opening route of SGN-NHA. Because Nha Trang is a beach town, so that is the idea of bikini girl came from. Also, The girls who were dancing are part of the Beauty contest event called Miss Star which sponsored by VietJet Air as well.

The reason for the fine is Vietjet air has not informed the CAAV and Vietjet air does not have a licensed to organize "fashion show"   .

They got fine for 20 mil VND (less than 1,000 USD) for 3 minutes show. I think it is worth marketing expense though

Fined just because Like no other, just because it's the first time in the country, just because of didn't know where and how to appy  )
This is the great way to expose the company brand image, to make noise to make more people know about them. In another word, INTELLIGENT WAY to be the first to do BIKINI show  )

Thanks for the info vietsky - facts always help to put it all into perspective!
Which leads to the following...

Have to agree with this and other similar ones...and for the equivelent of $1000 fine plus the cost of a beauty pagent, there is no WAY that they could have ever done a traditional ad campaign that would have had me hearing about them on the far side of the planet (I'm in South America at the moment - so even more distant from VN than normal!). MOL and Sir Richard will both be looking to hire away Vietjet's marketing team.

This was what I figured. So if the show was performed on the tarmac or concourse, would they have been fined anyway?

So even if it was just a drum ceremony (aka ANA inaugural 787 flight) would they have been fined?

I guess when Vietnam Airlines inaugurate their 787 service, they should make sure all the paperwork is in correct order and proper "fees" are paid.

Yes, they are much more discrete than the bikinis that shows up at Vung Tau or Da Nang worn by western tourists.

Heck . . . these bikinis are more discrete than the Olympic women beach volleyball uniforms.

Why would they? The fees and the hassle of filling in the forms and stuff are probably about the same (or more) hassle than a $1000 fine, and, the existence of the fine provides worldwide advertising...cheap at 10 times the price!

This is actual true on several levels. The bananas from Vietnam (Asia in general) are shorter but denser (and some say more aromatic) than the kind you get from South/Central America. The skin is also thinner.

You can interpret that any way you like it . . . but is true from the agricultural stand point.
