Fly naked on Germany's first nudist holiday flight

Reuters.com article - Fly naked on Germany's first nudist holiday flight

Fly naked on Germany's first nudist holiday flight | International | Reuters

Talk about hanging loose and gravity being a major factor on this flight.

Let's hope that the seats are not leather.

How many of you would pay good money do be on such a flight?

GOD BLESS

Hard to believe there is a market for this.

You could not pay me enough to board that plane! (even if allowed to keep my clothes on)

Contrary to popular belief, there's rarely anything worthwhile "seeing". I doubt anyone under 45 will be boarding that one...

You are right there probably will not be too many people under of the age of 45 booking and boarding this flight.

From the article

There are FKK hotels where you can go into the restaurants and shops naked, for example," Hess said. "For FKK fans -- not that I'm one of them -- it's nothing unusual."

I for one could not eat at a resturant or go to a shop in which people are walking around naked. It' more then what a poor devil like me could stomach.

GOD BLESS

Yikes! For the same reasons that I wear neither flip flops, nor open toe nor open heeled shoes when flying, I wouldn't go nude.

In a similar vein--I sure hope they don't have to use the emergency slide to exit the plane. Ouch!

Will everyone be issued a complementary towel or are naked free-swingin travelers required to bring along their own?

Don't think I would fly with them. May see some things I rather not. Not sure too many people would want to see me naked either.

I've heard about that towel thing before...always wondered if it had one color on one side and another color on the other side...otherwise, what's the point?!

Reminds me of a joke where the doctor asks the man for a urin, stool and sperm sample and leaves the room. Man asks his wife what the doctor just said. She says he wants your underware.

Argued for years that that style of flying would be way cheaper and more secure than our current TSA nonsense.

Agree, it would cut down on unnecessary body searches of little old ladies in their 80's. Just think of the time that would be saved when passengers were asked to disrobe for a body search all they would have to do is employ the wide stance and cough.
