Air Strip Anyone?

Over at Airline Biz there's an interesting post about Braniff and the designer who repainted their aircaft. Braniff took things to a new level when it also used renowned designer Pucci to come up with a minidress for its stewardesses. They ran an advertisement at the time asking “Does your wife know you’re flying with us?.” They ran an advert which caused feminist outrage showcasing the versatile outfit (it was brilliantly designed, using comfortable fabrics rather than the stiff, scratchy materials seen hitherto, and its various components allowed it to convert from rainwear to a minidress) which was loaded with innuendo.
