Wheeee!


I'm sorry, three posts in a day (even if two ARE very silly) is too much, but I just HAD to share this deliciously silly PR shot from the Emirates Airbus A380 launch in Hamburg. You can, of course, click on it to make it bigger. BTW - they're wearing the new uniform...

I wasn't going to say anything about it, honestly. What with some 200 journalists attending the launch, including ace broadcaster Malcolm Taylor, and the papers all going mad about it, I already thought it had overkill scrawled across it - although (and I would like to be clear about this) I'm very happy for Emirates, which I admire.

However, asking the crew to run along the tarmac making big propeller arms has resulted in my favourite photo of the month, without a doubt!

But I do like the new skirts with that lascivious red lining to the slits.

just like another new rich local showing off his new rolex or lambo without really knowing how to operate it!

the world is in recession and we buy 60 super super jumbos!

however if your post was more about the new uniforms.. then i say aha!

Buj/Nick. You are bad people.

Emirates celebrate and Lufthansa is in strike!

I spluttered my coffee all over the paper when I saw the pic too.

Welcome to the brave new world of 1950's PR.

Why haven't we seen photos of the new uniforms on the fashion pages by the way - or have I missed them?

I'm quite fond of 1950s PR. Retro is the new 'new', didn't ye know?

I have made myself laugh. A God-given talent, to amuse oneself!

I am now going on leave. Give my love to the dust clouds...
