Spirit Airlines uses strippers to promote sale

Spirit Airlines has sparked a new controversy with its use of mobile female strippers to promote its new service to Las Vegas.

The strippermobiles – featuring bikini-clad women pole dancing on a moving truck behind flexi glass – are being driven around Los Angeles with the words: “I’ll go both ways for 18 dollars”, reports News.com.au.

The airline recently jumped on the back of the US Congressman Anthony Weiner debacle by offering a “Big Weiner Sale”.

The Florida-based airline announced the 9-dollar fares as “too HARD to resist,” with a photo of a hot dog and the subject line: “Want To See Our Weiner?”

It’s not the first the airline has resorted to sex to sell flights.

Last June they released an ad featuring scantily clad women poking fun at the BP oil disaster.

A series of photos featuring oil-drenched women in bikinis appears on the Spirit Airlines’ website with the slogan: “Check Out The Oil On Our Beaches.”

In 2009 the airline launched a “We’re No Virgin” sale featuring the slogan: “We’ve Been Cheap and Easy for Years.”
