I would've thought a zeppelin would've been a more appropriate choice.

Turbulence has never looked so beautiful.

In event of a crash, your stewardess may be used as a flotation device.
2003-03-05 12:59:22 PM  
Hooters air, the plane would go down under the weight of all those boobies. If it gets off the ground at all.

He added, pun intended, "Sooner or later, we expect we'll see the headline, 'Hooters Air Goes Bust.'"

That guy must write headlines for Fark.

"Hooters Air (eloas)"
2003-03-05 01:25:14 PM  
mmmmmm...tasty wings

Three words... "Mile High Club"

There's no way this venture will work. People want the cheapest flight. Period. Tight orange shorts and a T-shirt is not going to change that. Maybe if they gave out Toyota's...
2003-03-05 01:27:06 PM  
Seriously, even without the girls, an airline that served beer and wings would be great.

The flight attendents will be paid with "Toy-Yodas"
2003-03-05 01:28:30 PM  
And the first 100 passengers to fly Hooters Air will be given a Toyota !

Am I the only straight guy that doesn't like the idea of Hooters? Or Hooters having access to airplanes?

Any pics?
2003-03-05 01:34:32 PM  
Macman37: No.
2003-03-05 01:34:34 PM  
Hooters in the sky!!! Yay capitalist america, the only place where you can get boobies and a window seat.
2003-03-05 01:35:24 PM  
What, no pics????????
2003-03-05 01:35:37 PM  
That picture is a classic, I don't know if it is the Yoda doll or the look on her face or both....
2003-03-05 01:35:58 PM  
I hear they are working on getting flights into silicon valley
2003-03-05 01:36:00 PM  
Uh... so all this is, is a plane with a logo on the tail, and two Hooterettes on board?

WTF is the point? No wings? No beer? Only two Hooterettes for the whole plane?

2003-03-05 01:36:13 PM  
And when they ask you if you want milk for your coffee always say yes.
2003-03-05 01:36:30 PM  
this sounded like a good idea, but after reading the artical, its going to suck. no hot wings served, and only two hooter girls aboard the plane.
2003-03-05 01:37:15 PM  
All Hail Derrie-Air!!
2003-03-05 01:38:35 PM  
I firmly belive that Hooters should take over every company that is predominatley staffed by females under 30.
2003-03-05 01:38:35 PM  
No nonsense, those outfits just aren't very sexy with the pantyhose. Is that required for them or are the chicks I've seen just prudes?
2003-03-05 01:38:40 PM  
is silocone lighter than tit?

there could be some fuel savings here,
especially with the uniforms we are all hoping for.
2003-03-05 01:40:16 PM  
Looks like one of thier waitresses coded hootersair.com...

Too bad no chicken wings. Then their motto could have been "Friendlist wings in the sky".

<-- husband runs local Hooters
2003-03-05 01:41:20 PM  
uhhh - people?

two hooters girls per flight are better than no hooters girls per flight.
2003-03-05 01:41:28 PM  
How about my idea for an airline: for the inflight movies, we show the finest R-rated movies Europe has to offer. Mmmmm-mmmm!
2003-03-05 01:42:34 PM  
2003-03-05 01:43:04 PM  
Can someone tell me why Hooters hasn't been sued into oblivion by all of the large, ugly waitresses out there? I mean if you are not hot (or a guy for that matter) - could you not sue them if they would not hired you. (assuming you are qualified)

2003-03-05 01:43:12 PM  
Dawn Deeks said passenger safety is the group's main concern, and if the Hooters Girls help with serving, passengers may assume they also have flight attendant training, which could be a problem in an emergency.

Yeah. Because I trust airborne waitresses to save me in an emergency.
2003-03-05 01:47:51 PM  
HeyHeyHey, hooters is a "family" resturant, and I'm sure this is a "family friendly" airline. . .The "O"s in HOOTERS are the owls eyes. . .

2003-03-05 01:48:28 PM  
Hey, for everyone who thinks this is a good idea, it could be worse. Microsoft could be getting into the air business. How would you like to ride in a airplane that is guerranteed to crash twice a day and loose all of your luggage, even the carry on stuff?

Thank you for flying Hooter's Air.
To operate your seatbelt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. If you need assistance with the belt, the in-flight crew will be happy to help you for a nominal fee of $20.
In the event of an emergency water landing,your seat cushions can be used for flotation. Don't worry about the Flight attendants as they have been medically certified as life rafts.
In the event of a loss of cabin pressure, the Flight Attendant's boobs will expand dramatically, and can be used to seal any cracks in the fuselage.
We will be serving a complementary snack and beverage of your choice. Breastfeeding is not one of your choices.

If Hooters Air goes out of business the terrorist have truly won.
2003-03-05 02:08:59 PM  

2003-03-05 02:14:51 PM  
Covergirl.. You seem a little defensive.. Could it be that you look good in orange tight shorts as well? HHHmmmmm??

THEIR POLL: Would you fly Hooters Air ? 54%Y / 39%N / 7%? / 444 responses.

Let's see how those numbers stack up later...

...I'm proud to be an American...
2003-03-05 02:17:47 PM  
Miss, could I get a couple of cushions for my face, please?

ah, that's the stuff!
2003-03-05 02:19:39 PM  
I'd ride it.
2003-03-05 02:20:27 PM  
"No nonsense, those outfits just aren't very sexy with the pantyhose. Is that required for them or are the chicks I've seen just prudes?"

I believe it's a heath code thing.

As for why they're not sued for not hiring ugly girls, they do hire ugly girls. Some are hot but many aren't. None of them are super old or fat though, but that's also true of any Bennegans, TGI Fridays or that restaurant Jennifer Aniston worked at in Office Space.

And a guy did sue Hooters for not hiring him as a waiter but he lost. Althugh that could have been a publicity stunt.
