According to the Daily Mailcomments on Facebook stated:
It's disgusting. I will boycott Vietjet for this.
Vietjet's move was so rude, cheap and offensive to the team, the fans and even its passengers.
The backlash was so strong against Vietjet that they were forced to offer an apology and claimed that it was an "improvised move" and not a piece of marketing – adding that "relevant staff" had been disciplined.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam has since fined Viejet 40 million dong (£1,240) and the plane's chief stewardess a further 4 million dong (£124).
And it isn't the first time Vietjet has found itself in this situation.
In August 2012 the airline was fined 20 million dong (£620) for including a group of bikini-clad women as part of an in-flight entertainment routine.
