Airline offers passengers the chance to join the Mile High Club

Ohio-based Flamingo Air has now opened up private flights specifically designed for customers to enjoy a more-than-romantic trip through the skies.

While the legality and ethics of secretly making love on a commercial flight are a gray area at best, there’s no denying that passengers continue to join the Mile High Club. Spying a business opportunity, Ohio-based Flamingo Air has now opened up private flights specifically designed for customers to enjoy a more-than-romantic trip through the skies.

Its Mile High Club package offers an hour-long flight in a Piper Cherokee 6 airplane, complete with its own private, curtained love nest. The website says that the trip comes with free chocolate, champagne and a “very discreet pilot”. The scheme means that loved-up couples can travel without having to sneak off to the cramped airline toilet, and can instead do whatever they like at 20,000 feet. They can even determine the path of the flight, taking in some of Cincinatti’s landmarks. The service costs USD 425 for each couple and — of course — each flight takes only two passengers at a time.

While ideas such as Germany’s Die Liebeskuemmerer have catered to travelers coping with the end of a relationship, Flamingo Airways could spark some new ones and — who knows — maybe help bring a new life into the world. Are there other ways to help couples discreetly enjoy each other’s company in more exciting settings?
