No frills airline Ryanair yesterday launched their raunchiest ever cabin crew charity calendar - sending heart rates soaring with saucy staff members pictured in alluring undies.
13 trolly dollies stripped down to their smalls and swimwear in a bid to raise up to €100,000 for charity - bringing the total raised by Ryanair's gorgeous cabin crew to €500,000 since the first calendar was published in 2008.
From more than 400 applicants, the babes, two of which hail from Dublin, selected the Butterfly Children of the DEBRA charity to receive the entire proceeds of the 2012 calendar.
“Ryanair's gorgeous cabin crew are pleased to once again strip off for charity and this year they have selected DEBRA who help children born with skin so fragile they are affectionately referred to as Butterfly Children,” Ryanair's Stephen McNamara explained.
Critics rally against the calendar on an annual basis, branding it as sexist but every year 10,000 copies of the Ryanair cabin crew charity calendar sell out. The budget airline also managed a major coup by pulling in an X Factor stylist and celebrity photographer John Rowley to work on the project for free. Yesterday, DEBRA'S Chief Executive, Jimmy Fearon, thanked the gutsy girls for baring all for their good cause.
