    Are there not more important issues in the world today than voting on this one?

  • Discussion 8 : 28 Sep 2012 at 08.228

    changing marketing concept, a bold move in part of Vietnam airlines.

  • Discussion 7 : 27 Sep 2012 at 14.577

    Given the appauling state of airlines in Vietnam, I doubt this put anyone in anymore danger than they already were.
    Given the humourlessness of most Vietnamese, at least in the north, this seems an out-of-character, good idea to lighten up an otherwise dour populace.

    I think they should let the passengers know in advance, so they have a choice to or not to participate in it, by being on a different flight.

    Wow! what a great idea. Sure wish I could have been on that flight. Airline gals are so cool. A beauty pageant on board a flight. Now, that has potential to increase business. I hope Thai-Air starts the same program.

    Slow news day?
    Out of ideas for polls?
    Seriously, who thinks up these poll questions? This incident occured at the beginning of AUGUST, and only now, you are asking this inane question.

    Arrogant bureaucrats who are crazed by having too much power are the same everywhere.

  • Discussion 2 : 26 Sep 2012 at 08.072

    They only fined the airline because they were upset to not be on that flight and witness the show.

    And in a case of emergency you would expect the dancing girls acting and handling the situation like professionals, eventually telling the passengers what to do.

    There is a slight difference between the skills of a flight attendant and a gogo girl. I think we should keep that job description separated.
