Naked cruise

Houston, Jan. 18 (Reuters): On Naked-Air, seatbelts aren’t the only things coming off once the pilot switches off the sign.

Passengers aboard a May 3 chartered flight from Miami to Cancun, Mexico, dubbed “Naked-Air,” will be free to drop their pants, shed their bras and underwear and move about the cabin au naturel.

Castaways Travel, a Houston-area travel agency that specialises in “clothing-optional trips,” is offering what it bills as the world’s first all-nude flight for $499, round-trip.

“Once the aircraft reaches cruising altitude, you will be free to enjoy the flight clothes-free,” the agency’s web site says.

Bart pack

New York (AP): Perpetual 10-year-old Bart, his clueless dad Homer and the rest of the Simpsons clan are about to go into TV history as stars of the longest-running sitcom ever. Fox announced a deal yesterday to renew the cartoon for two more seasons, taking it at least through May 2005. That will push The Simpsons past The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, which aired on ABC from 1952 to 1966, as the all-time longest-running situation comedy. The Simpsons premiered as a series on December 17, 1989.
