Flying nude, or How to take it all off before you take off

A German travel agency has come up with a titillating new offer for the nudist on the move– naked flights. The agency will accept bookings on Friday for a July 5 trial flight from the eastern German town of Erfurt to a Baltic resort called Usedom.

At around US$800, tickets are pricey, which is somewhat surprising considering what the airline will save on nuts.

Reuters has the full story:

“‘It’s expensive, I know,’ managing director Enrico Hess told Reuters by phone. ‘It’s because the plane’s very small. There’s no real reason why a flight in which one flies naked should be more expensive than any other.'”

“The 55 passengers will have to remain clothed until they board, and dress before disembarking, said Hess. The crew will remain clothed throughout the flight for safety reasons.”

Before you rush to book a flight, keep in mind the general rule about nudists: they’re rarely the people you actually want to see naked. [Now here comes the nudist hate mail…]
