NSFW A group of Spanish trolley dollies who were grounded when their employer Air Comet went titsup last December have pressed their claim for outstanding wages by getting their kit off for a calendar, Spanish media report.

The nine former air hostesses are among those cabin crew owed up to eight months' wages by the defunct airline, according to spokeswoman Adriana Ricardo. They decided to disrobe to make "as much noise as possible" regarding their plight, and the Spanish press has enthusiastically given them extensive exposure:
