Spirit’s Smock Schock

January 28, 2009 at 4:47 pm 7 comments

Some not-yet-laid-off flight attendants forgot that whole ‘thankful to have a job in this New Great Depression’ thing and got all Captain Pissy Pants over a new uniform design that *SHOCK* includes an apron showing logos for certain alcoholic beverages.

Deborah Crowley, the HBIC of Spirit’s flight attendants union chapter, said “turning flight attendants into walking billboards is unacceptable.”
::: Well yeah – sure, ‘cuz losing your job like those 7,000 United schmucks or those 1,700 USAir hacks or the ‘undiscosed’ number gettin’ the JetBlue boot of doom is, like,WAAAYYYY more acceptable — GOTCHA!! :::

Apparently mystified by that whole ‘revenue stream’ concept, the Association of Flight Attendants chapter at Spirit Airlines said:
1.) The uniforms send the wrong signal to passengers
::: Which would be what? “Thank you for flying Spirit! Why yes we DO have a beverage service!” OMG — WHAT AN OUTRAGE!!! :::

2.) Make it harder for flight attendants to enforce safety regulations.
::: because … like, what? The apron isn’t really an apron but rather an undercover agent of some super secret terrorist cell?!? OMG — WHAT AN OUTRAGE!!! :::

My advice?


Strap on the apron, sling the sauce, collect your cash and direct your righteous indignation where it really belongs — at Spirit’s long history of stupid sexist fratboy advertising!

I mean, who can forget last year’s ‘We’re having a threesome’ special – OR this year’s sequel to the superclassy campaign from 2007:

::: … ok, actually I’m just pissed no one asked me to be the spokeswhore on that one … :::

    Oh it’s not like they’re the only one — sex sell baby — but if you’re gonna bitch about hauling hootch around the skybus make it equal and take a REAL stand.
    Don’t just bitch and moan about it.

    I’m still bummed they banned PETA’s Super Bowl ad!

    I left a great comment about that Peta ad on a very liberal blog. I thought it was funny. They didn’t.

    I said “SEE! I told you arugula was for pussies!”

    I thought the ad was quite eye-opening but I also believe it was so over the top on purpose — it’s already been seen by so many people (many of whom may have been on a potty break if it actually aired)

    Not exactly marketing genius – but not too far off
