Five ways to join the mile-high club around the world
You could always try to do it in your seat, but you'll need a fairly empty flight. Also, your options will be limited, even compared to the lav.
Fortunately, there appears to be a better way. If you want to join this unique, exclusive club without risking an angry speech from a safety-focused flight attendant, take a look at the options below. You can attain your newest "status" at a fairly reasonable price in some cases – and have a memory to savor.
Good to know: "Our pilot is VERY discreet and all flights are handled with the UTMOST confidentiality."
2. Exstacy Air: Based in St. Clair County, Michigan, this service will bring you up above the clouds so you can have your moment of bliss. For $375, you and your cohort – unless you're logging solo hours – will get an hour in the sky, a bottle of champagne and a set of mile-high wings (that you'll doubtless earn).
Unique feature: You can keep your sheets as a souvenir!
3. Chicago Mile High Club: this service offers "you and your loved one the exclusive use of our 20 passenger airliner so that you can become mile-high club members, with all of the safety and privacy that comes with having a large twin-engine turboprop airliner all to yourselves." But, this sort of service is pricey: $999 an hour, and you have to make reservations at least a week in advance.
Selling point: The cabin is more than 20 feet long, six feet wide and 5 ½ feet tall. Break out your copy of the Kama Sutra!
4. Mile High Flights: earn your international wings with this UK service, which includes champagne, "stunning views" and whatever other fun you can concoct! Several options are available, with products named "The Big One (£640) and "The VIP" (£930).
Mortgage your orgasm: Flexible payment options are available for those who don't want to wind up spent right away.
5. The ol' fashioned way: look both ways, and move casually toward the lavatory, preferably while the flight attendants are working the beverage cart. Step out with your hair askew and a fantastically broad smile on your face.
Multiple benefits: No, not that kind – I'm referring to the fact that this flight will also take you to your destination, rather than cart you around on a "sightseeing" experience. You may also pick up some frequent flier miles.
