The controversial ads are being driven around Los Angeles. Picture: Spirit Airlines
SPIRIT Airlines has stooped to a new low by using mobile female strippers to promote its new service to Las Vegas.
The strippermobiles – featuring bikini-clad women pole dancing on a moving truck behind flexi glass – are being driven around Los Angeles with the words: “I’ll go both ways for $18”.
Spirit’s new service between Los Angeles and Las Vegas began on May 5th.
The airline recently jumped on the back of the US Congressman Anthony Weiner debacle by offering a “Big Weiner Sale”.
The Florida-based airline announced the $9 fares as “too HARD to resist,” with a photo of a hot dog and the subject line: “Want To See Our Weiner?”
It’s not the first the airline has resorted to sex to sell flights.
Last June they released an ad featuring scantily clad women poking fun at the BP oil disaster.
A series of photos featuring oil-drenched women in bikinis appears on the Spirit Airlines’ website with the slogan: "Check Out The Oil On Our Beaches."
In 2009 the airline launched a "We're No Virgin" sale featuring the slogan: "We've Been Cheap and Easy for Years."
The same year flight attendants hit out at being forced to promote alcohol on airline crew aprons and condemned a series of sexually suggestive advertisements
The airline ran a series of ads inviting customers to enjoy DD's (deep discounts) and MILF (many islands, low fare) – referring to large breasts and an acronym made popular in the 1999 movie American Pie.
