A flight that goes all the way
A private American airline company is offering passengers a special packaged flight that could get them in the Mile High Club. Flamingo Air has launched the ‘Flight of Fancy’ taking couples on an hour flight which includes a double bed, a bottle of champagne, and “one very discreet pilot”.
Why it matters
Some would say that joining the Mile High Club loses all of its fun and appeal if it’s condoned.

Are there other categories where businesses should indulge their potential customers – no matter how naughty the need?
