Airline forced to deny flightie orgy

China Eastern has been forced to deny rumours that flight attendants from the airline were involved in an orgy.

And if that isn’t the strangest sentence we write today, we’re not sure what will be.

The incident was made public thanks to a number of photos and videos being uploaded to Chinese social media platform Weibo.

The footage was then shared over other social media sites.

In the clips, four women and two men can be seen dancing, laughing and fornicating in the nude.

According to News.com, rumours surrounding the raunchy party were quick to spread, with many viewers of the content speculating those featured were flight attendants working for either China Eastern Airlines or its subsidiary Shanghai Airlines.

Now, China Eastern has released a document, in which the airline fiercely rejects the claims, adding that it is simply an attempt to tarnish the airline’s reputation.

The incident was said to have taken place in Madrid, however, many are saying it was actually in Thailand.

According to The Shanghaiist, users on WeChat have been making jokes about flyers having to wait in long lines for China Eastern, given most of its attendants are a little preoccupied.

As well as that, people have said they are willing to switch careers to join in on the fun.

As per The Shanghaiist, “The video and posts on the subject have now been scrubbed from most Chinese sites and social media networks with “China Eastern” (东航) becoming the second-most censored term on Weibo, behind only eye-rolling reporter Liang Xiangyi.”
