Flight Attendants Fight Back Against Sexxxy Sports Illustrated Swimsuit PlaneS

Commenter Little Green Frog alerts us to an airborne controversy: the airline Airtran has put a big picture of a swimsuit-clad woman on a Boeing 737 as a promo for the Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition. Flight attendants are mad.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Association of Flight Attendants sent out this disapproving message re: swimsuit plane.

"It is our feeling that this is not only contrary to the family image that this company tries to promote, but also potentially offensive to their female employees, the majority of their flight attendants who will have to work on this aircraft," the union said, adding that it "creates a potential for verbal abuse by male passengers."

There is only one possible solution to this controversy: Put a picture of naked Levi Johnston on the plane, too. You're welcome, AirTran.
