Prepare for the ride of your life...with Mandy Smith: sexy Virgin trolley dolly, who always delivers service with a scarlet smile.
In-flight entertainment has never been so X-rated: from mile-high romps and layover frolics, to outrageous crew antics, drug-fuelled parties and explicit galley gossip, become Mandy’s travel companion as she takes off on a 12-year journey into the seductive world of flying.
