In November 2010 Mexicana Aviation went bankrupt leaving many of its flight attendants without a job and subsequently without a source of income. Out of desperation many of these women resulted to other forms of fast cash, according to recent reports.

Appearing on a calendar name “Aeromozas Mexicanas”, many of the ex-flight attendants posed with sexy outfits alongside airplanes.

As the calendar and its modeling women became more famous, most of the women were given the offer to appear on Playboy. Although many women rejected the offer, Samantha Vazquez believed that appearing on the magazine would not only give her fame but would help her get out of her tremendous debt.

After her surge of fame Samantha was again left without a job and began searching in other major airlines for positions. Yet, due to her revealing photos, no airline has wanted to hire her. Desperate, Vazquez is thinking of taking legal measures for what she views as nude discrimination.
