The story comes from an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O radio show where she shared “she and her boyfriend were once caught having sex on a plane.” Fortunately for them there were no consequences.
When asked if she’s ever joined the mile high club, Gale admitted “yeah,” before sharing that she and her boyfriend were busted coming out of the airplane bathroom.
Ms. Gale is 22 and dating her high school boyfriend. There’s no photos of the incident, but here she is doing inflight yoga on Virgin Australia. She has a Virgin Australia tie-in where she performed an inflight fashion show for them.
The Mile High Club is over 100 years old. The very first couple to try it were using a Curtiss Flying Boat C‑2 off Long Island. The woman was cheating on her husband who was serving abroad in World War I. They managed to disengage the autopilot while engaged in their congress, sending the plane into the water. They were found naked by duck hunters.
Usually passengers use the lavatory. Virgin Atlantic once claimed they had to replace baby changing tables as a result. (Really they were just trying to suggest their flights are so awesome people have sex on them, the claim about the baby changing tables was likely apocryphal.)
Far less common is having sex at your seat as one couple tried to do onboard a Ryanair flight but that story went viral because (1) there was video and (2) the passengers had just met. In that case the airline, apparently, refused to intervene. You never know in advance whether or not you’re going to get away with public inflight sex.
Tommy Lee for instance got away with it on a one hour American Airlines flight. He didn’t need much time in the forward lav.
