    Low-cost Irish airline Ryanair is in hot water for producing a calendar featuring female cabin staff in underwear and bikinis. Consumer watchdogs in Spain have made a private prosecution claim and the matter will be heard by a three-judge panel on 30 April.

    The 2013 calendar is sold on all Ryanair flights and priced at €10 (roughly £8) and all proceeds are diverted to the Polish TVN Foundation, which helps children suffering from cystic fibrosis. However, consumer groups in Spain's Malaga province believe the calendar is offensive and exploits female employees.

    Must be an April Fool's story, and this part is the give-away.

    ;)

    If it's real, please submit photographic evidence.

    The foundation is real and so is the calendar. Watch the video.

    ...or I bit on the April Fools Joke, a rather elaborate one, actually.

    Silly. What a waste of time. It's not like they forced the employees to do it and it is for charity.

    I was joking actually. I am sure the foundation is real, but RyanAir diverting money collected for anything seemed rather.... unRyanAir.
