Let's sponsor a mass circumcision!

Today we flew Lionair (not Ryanair) from the somewhat Christian city of Manado [Manado-travel-guide-866704] to the more Muslim city of Makassar [Makassar-travel-guide-1318796] (or Ujung Pandang) arriving at the beautiful new Sultan Hasanuddin airport.

Now for some amusing facts, factoids or urban myths about Lionair:

1. Photos were found on the internet showing a bunch of Lionair cabin crew playing with the crash axe (an axe carried on board for hacking one's way out in a crash, standard equipment on aircraft but naturally hidden from passenger view). They were amusing pictures, with some being rather suggestive!

2. Lionair was speculated to be starting an Australian domestic airline when some of the Australian public thought they need to brush-up on their cultural awareness with doing promotions. They had organised a mass-circumcision for young boys as one of its community-and-promotional events ... while appropriate for Indonesia it is rather awkward for Australians to even think about it.
