Ryanair's Video :)
Cabin crew undress for charity calendar by Zoomin_UK
Ryanair has become enveloped in an unseemly row with Spanish housewives over its new calendar.
The cut price airline produces a charity calendar each year, featuring scantily-clad flight attendants.
But the latest version has attracted the wrath of the Provincial Association of Housewives and Consumers of Valencia.
The association has formally complained that the calendar exploits female workers, and reported it to the Non-Sexist Advertising Observatory of Valencia for using the female body in the form of advertising.
The association wants the calendar - intended to raise money to send 50 British families with children who suffer from a fragile skin condition on holiday to Spain - taken off sale.
The housewives say that the airline is profiting by using the publicity whipped up by the calendar to sell its low-cost flights.
However, Ryanair says it has already sold 90% of its 10,000 print run of 2012 calendars, raising nearly €120,000 for the charity, Debra.
It says the calendar is no different to other calendars featuring scantily clad workers - both male and female - and say it raises money for a good cause.
