A budget Vietnamese airline says photos of flight attendants in lingerie were leaked from a test shooting and spread online, but are not official promotional photos.

VietJet Air was slammed on social media for the photos of the scantily clad ladies.

Model Ngoc Trinh posted some photos to her Facebook page and said she and eight others had been hired to shoot a campaign for the airline, but deleted the post Friday, Tuoitre News reported.

A couple of photos in which Trinh was tagged in remained on her page.

"Good reason to book a flight on VietJet Air," one man wrote under a photo of Trinh and another model wearing red and yellow bikinis, red stockings and high heels inside the cabin of a plane.

A VietJet Air spokesman told the newspaper the photos were "uncensored" and were "leaked beyond VietJet Air intention and control."
