HANOI: Vietnam's budget airline has apologised for sending scantily clad models to join the country's under-23 men's football squad on a flight home, after social media cried foul over the "cheap" public relations (PR) stunt.

VietJet - best known for its bikini-clad air hostesses - came under fire for sending models in barely there costumes to join the footballers heading home from China, where the team suffered a 2-1 defeat after extra time by Uzbekistan in the Under-23 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Championship on Saturday (Jan 27).
