    There's an old joke about the newlyweds who flew United. They were arrested when the plane arrived.

    Good and bad possibilities

    One must balance the more attractive vistas one could imagine with the possibility of getting stuck in the middle seat of three between two of those plump sweaty businessmen one so often sees crammed into those seats. And I think I would definitely get up and stand in the aisle for a moment if the guy by the window needed to get out to go to the toilet.

    What I don't understand is why are they waiting until the plane is in the air? Why not strip down before boarding. It sure would speed up those searches.

    Naked-Air Boasts All-Nude Miami-Cancun Flight

    Jan 20, 8:35 am ET

    HOUSTON (Reuters) - On Naked-Air, seatbelts aren't the only things coming off once the pilot switches off the sign.
    Passengers aboard a May 3 chartered flight from Miami to Cancun, Mexico, dubbed "Naked-Air," will be free to drop their pants, shed their bras and underwear and move about the cabin au naturel.

    Castaways Travel, a Houston-area travel agency that specializes in "clothing-optional trips," is offering what it bills as the world's first all-nude flight for $499, round-trip.

    "Once the aircraft reaches cruising altitude, you will be free to enjoy the flight clothes-free," the agency's web site says.

    But those thinking about engaging in monkey business on the trip are warned: "Inappropriate behavior is not condoned for this nude flight."

    Seats aboard the chartered Boeing 727-200 jet are reserved for the first 170 passengers, and the destination is an all-inclusive "Nude Week" vacation at the El Dorado Resort & Spa in Cancun.

    Castaways bills Nude Week as the first event of its kind to be held Mexico. Guests at the resort on the Caribbean coast will only have to cover up when they are in the hotel's restaurants and reception areas. The bars are fair game for the naked and the nude.

    Among the activities planned for Nude Week are "Caesar's Rampage/Toga night, a special "castaway" night ala Tom Hanks' movie, Karaoke night, PJ night, body painting plus lots more fun themes and games," the web site promises.

    Given the incredibly strict airport security that is now the rule in the U.S., passengers aboard "Naked-Air" should have it a bit easier -- none are likely to be carrying too much in their luggage.
