Virginity Airlines today announced that starting in June all customers will be required to do the Safety Dance in flight and prior to boarding.
The policy comes after the airline began requiring all crew-members to watch Cher's 1985 classic "Mask" before starting their shifts. Virginity Air has modeled its policy on the CDC guidelines that suggest all individuals should take all precautions and wear a face covering in public to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
“Doing the Safety Dance isn’t about protecting yourself it’s about promoting good safety habits and protecting those around you,” said Joanne Freightly, president and chief operating officer, Virginity Airlines. “This is how things are now. You can act real rude and totally removed, or you can try to not act like an imbecile.”
This new policy will require customers to Safety Dance throughout their journey, including during check-in, boarding, while in flight and deplaning. Customers will be reminded of this requirement before their flight via text and at airports by both signage, announcements, and temporary tattoos on the back of both hands. Small children who are not able Safety Dance are exempt from this requirement, but still encouraged to remind parents to look at their hands.
