For those who want to travel around Southeast Asia, you might want to book a flight with VietJet Air, the only privately-owned airline in Vietnam. They offer good rates, have yet to be involved in scary incidents, have nice, clean planes, and own 30 percent of the airline market share in Vietnam.

Also, juuust in case you're still not interested, their flight attendants dress like this:

The company's motto "Enjoy Flying!" couldn't be more apt.

Whose idea was this? Surprisingly, not some male billionaire chauvinist. The brilliant mind behind it is a woman who goes by the name Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao. Thao, who made her first million at 21 years old by selling fax machines and latex rubber while studying finance and economics in Moscow, is unfazed by people who criticize her unique business approach.

The CEO shared her views in an interview with international news company Bloomberg: "You have the right to wear anything you like, either the bikini or the traditional ao dai (a tunic worn over loose pants)."

She added: "We don't mind people associating the airline with the bikini image. If that makes people happy, then we are happy."

The company has always been dismissive of the criticism. Back in 2012, VietJet Air was fined $960 by the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam for having its flight attendants perform a Hawaiian dance in bikinis on its inaugural flight between Ho Chi Minh City and the popular beach town of Nha Trang.

Fancy another uniform change, Cebu Pacific?
