This is one of those things that you just don't appreciate until it's gone.
Yup, Hooters had an airline, and yeah, it didn't last.
It started back in 2003 and I was very anxious to try it, but it just never fit into my travel plans.
I wish it had.
I would have got to fly on one of the six orange planes staffed by Hooter girls.
According to Wikipedia each flight consisted of two Hooter girls who would assist the traditionally dressed stewardesses.
But what does Wikipedia know? I am going to stick to my fantasy that the plane had dozens and dozens of Hooter girls and they served wings and beer non-stop.
I also imagine that a Hooter girl was piloting the plane.
I can just hear her sexy voice as she giggled something about tray tables. That must have been AWESOME.
In 2006 Hooters stopped flying.
I bet Jay Leno made some joke about flotation devices or something that night.
