Thinking Outside the Inbox
Yet another entry in our ongoing series which brings just some of the PR-firm junk e-mail I regularly get to you, the readers.
In response to Spirit Airlines’ implementation of carry on baggage fees, my client, the American Association for Nude Recreation, is weighing in with the following comments...
Traveling with luggage is an ever-increasing inconvenience and expense - even if you don’t check your bag - as airlines are now beginning to charge even for that, as evidenced by Spirit Airline’s $45 carry on fee.
According to the American Association for Nude Recreation's executive director, Erich Schuttauf, 'To avoid added baggage stress as you embark upon a vacation, whose purpose is to de-stress and rejuvenate you, plan a Nakation – a vacation to a nudist resort! All you’ll need for the week (sunscreen, cap, sunglasses, shoes and toiletries) can fit in a small carry on that will fit under the seat, avoiding even carry on bag fees. So avoid the hassles of security screening bag issues, worries over lost belongings because you can’t lock your luggage to protect checked valuables. And the fact that overhead compartments never seem large enough for carry on roller bags. Take a Nakation.'
The American Association of Nude Recreation has over 250 member clubs, resorts, campgrounds and RV parks from which to choose for your Nakation.
Adds Schuttauf, 'If more air travelers take a stand and a Nakation in 2010, it could send a message to the airlines using checked and unchecked baggage fees as a way to charge the vacationing masses more money in this tight economy.'
Thank you for your consideration of this topic, on behalf of the American Association for Nude Recreation.
And now, my response:
Nope. I got nothin'.
