I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want: an airline promotion without calendar girls, Playboy pinups or Victoria’s Secret models. Instead, I’d like an airline promo that makes and keeps promises — for example, I’d love it if an airline made a guarantee that I’d be compensated if my flight was delayed, like Indian airlines are now doing. And what would really make me say “zigga zag ah”? A reasonable fare, a comfortable seat and a decent meal.
But, the airlines don’t wanna be my lover, and so they’re resorting to calendar girls, Playboy pinups and Victoria’s Secret models — and the Spice Girls. Yes, Sporty, Scary, Baby, Ginger and Posh have recently unveiled the new name for a Virgin Atlantic jet: the not-really-that-clever Spice One.
The flirty fivesome offered online voters three choices for the Boeing 747’s name; Girl Power and Spice Girl lost out.
