The point of Virgin Airlines/CW advertisement/"reality" show/soft-core pornography has yet to be made. Fly Girls appears to be confused as to the nature of its audience: is this directed at women, men or both?

Continually playing up to antiquated stereotypes of women seems to be one of its main goals. In this scene, one of the girls gets chastised by her sister for flirting too openly with a man. If this show wasn't as scripted and poorly acted as an elementary school play there would be no problem - but this scene comes off like they are reading a teleprompter written by an illiterate preacher from the late nineteenth century.

While the advertisements focus on shampoo, makeup and tampons (there were at least three different ads for menstrual products) the show itself has one true purpose - to show as much T & A as possible within a thirty minute period while still maintaining time to plug Virgin airlines and include enough dialogue to keep the show on network television.

Fly Girls seems to be confused as to the nature of its audience - this is not to say that women don't like looking at beautiful people, but the entire purpose of the show seems to be to create the perfect illusion of the female flight attendant - for a male audience. Why then does the show seem to want to market itself to women instead of finding its true place on a channel like SpikeTV? That way at least it could be appreciated the way it was intended, and would no longer be hiding behind an (admittedly thin) veil of legitimate representations of women.
