Porno past returns to haunt bus drivers

Two bus drivers in the south-west city of Toulouse have become unwilling celebrities after a colleague recognized them in an X-rated movie and shared it with other employees.

The two drivers, a woman now in her 30s and a man who is twenty years older, appeared in the film ten years ago, according to local newspaper Dépêche du Midi. They took jobs as drivers with the local bus company, Tisséo, three years ago.

The film is called “Tranche de vit” and, unsurprisingly, has a double meaning. When spoken, it sounds like the French expression “tranche de vie”, meaning “slice of life”. However, the film title uses the word “vit”, another word for penis.

The film was directed by well-known porn director Pascal Galbrun and is widely available online.

After word spread of their colourful past, the two took a leave of absence from work and filed a complaint against the colleague who brought their acting careers to light.

Dépêche du Midi reported that the colleague concerned is now the subject of disciplinary procedures and that his union has refused to defend him.

“Every Tisséo employee has the right to respect in the workplace. Private lives are sacred and should not be interfered with,” Frank Delperier, a union representative, told the newspaper.

The low-cost British airline Jet2 has announced it will begin operating new services between the UK and southern France, starting in the summer of 2022.

When travelling is possible again, getting to Toulouse from the north-west of England is set to become much easier with the launch of new flights from Manchester Airport.

Jet2 already flies to Bergerac, La Rochelle and Nice. The company announced the new destination in response to demand for summer 2022 holidays.

Flights to the “Pink City” in south west France will operate from May 1st until October 16th 2022.

“Since putting our Summer 2022 programme on sale from Manchester Airport, we have added a significant number of flights and destinations in response to the demand from customers who want to get their all-important holidays booked in,” Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said in a press release.

Since the British government announced a lockdown roadmap on Tuesday, with plans to end England restrictions by June 21st, the company has begun to see a surge in bookings.

However the present rules on entry into France from the UK are the strictest they have ever been, with virtually no travel allowed between the two countries and no end-date to the current restrictions.

Jet2 plans to reopen its services in mid-May.

“Following the UK government announcement that international travel will not return until May 17th 2021 at the earliest, we have taken the decision to extend the suspension of flights and holidays up to and including 16th May 2021,” Jet2 said on Twitter.
