Spanish Air Comet stewardess laid bare

 

       

 

     

 

Nine Spanish air hostesses have posed nude for a calendar to highlight their unpaid wages.

The women - who were all flight attendants with the now bankrupt Spanish Air Comet airline - have stripped off to raise awareness of the money which is owed to them by the aviation company.

 

Spanish-based budget airline Air Comet went bust last December after the High Court in London ordered the company to stop using its planes and selling tickets.

 

Stewardesses employed by the firm decided on their naked protest after failing to get up to eight months of unpaid salaries.

More than 1,000 calendars featuring nine women in their flight caps, gloves and high heels have gone on sale for £13.

Adriana Ricardo, who poses as Miss August on an aircraft engine in high heels and a tiny bikini, said: "I think it's a different and very elegant way of highlighting our plight.

"The rest of our colleagues are completely behind us."

Air Comet operated long-haul services from Madrid to 13 destinations in central and south America as well as services in Europe.

 

The women now have vowed to "continue to publicise their situation and demand a solution".

Calendar organiser Michel Velasco has also admitted that money raised from the project will "help their financial situation".

 

The High Court was asked to intervene by a bank which had sued the airline for not meeting the terms of payment for its leased aircraft.

Thousands of travellers were left stranded after Air Comet subsequently filed for protection from creditors.

The Ecuadorian government and several Spanish consumer groups are planning legal action against the company for fraud.
