Extra's: The best extra for most of you will be the 22.5 minute long bonus scene from Bound by Franchezca Valentina and Trent Soluri. It was a generic scene but still proved to have some fun moments; best suited for fans of light BDSM. I like unique extras that are made for specific projects so the 11 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Steve Austin was better for me; consisting largely of some nudity, minor extra sex footage, and a number of bloopers. There was a photogallery, some spam, and trailers to movies like Jane Blond DD7, O: The Power of Submission, Tailgunners, Blue Light, and The Contractor as well.
Audio/Video Quality: Flight 69 was presented in a non-anamorphic widescreen (letterboxed) with an aspect ratio of about 1.85:1 as shot by director Andre Madness for distribution by Adam & Eve. The lighting was solid though, limiting the grain, video noise, and other factors dependant on lighting. The composition of the shots was decent, typically enhancing the look of the ladies, although some of the editing could've been tightened up. The fleshtones were accurate and I wondered why A&E didn't provide the higher quality anamorphic widescreen since it would've been easy to do. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English as expected. The vocals were okay, although the levels were greatly in need of being raised substantially and seemed hollow, but at least they weren't as irritating as the cheesy porn music track. I didn't hear any major separation between the tracks and the dynamic range but elevating the levels would've helped me enjoy a few of the scenes a lot more.

Body of Review: Carmen Luvana is currently the premiere contract gal at Adam & Eve; starring in their various hits such as O: The Power of Submission, Tailgunners, Jane Blond DD7, and The Contractor. In short, she gets all the juicy roles offered by the company thanks in large part to how many fans she has and the money she brings in to their coffers. Well, her latest project is by director Andre Madness called Flight 69; the latest porno tackling the subject of fucking and air flight, a subject about as common as the pizza delivery boy used to be back in the good old days of the industry. As far as light hearted fluff flicks go, there was a lot to enjoy this time as the ladies did the deed but the movie was definitely one for Carmen's fans above all else. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that some condoms were used:
Scene One: Holly Wellin, in her blue satin outfit, followed studly Marco Duato/Banderas to the back room of the airline facility in order to satisfy a craving she had for meat, man meat, with her usual sense of playfulness and energy. She really slobbed his knob with that aggressive style of hers; taking him in deeply as she left streamers all over the place. Using her hand to gland combat style, she nearly got him off early but thankfully he held out in order to start pounding away at her pussy after the briefest of licks on her slit. She took all he had and took it well, moving into an even more active anal ride where she impaled herself on his hard cock as her breathing rate increased. It ended with a facial but it seemed like the strongest scene of the movie in terms of the chemistry, energy, and enthusiasm.
Scene Two: Carmen Luvana, the spicy Latina plastered all over the front cover (she was the lead and contract starlet after all), was up next after she caught partner Todd Driller on the phone with another woman. She got mad but the two worked things out as Carmen stripped for him and then jumped in bed. The initial heat from her anger subsided and was replaced by another kind of heat, albeit a far less passionate kind, as she started rubbing on him with her curvy, enhanced body. The oral was teasing more than fulfilling, leading to a moderately active romp in the poorly lit scene with him donning a rubber to poke her vaginally. She was largely on her back and letting him do all the work, making some nice vocals but marking time until she climbed on top of him for a ride marred only by camera work and editing. He ended it by stroking off on her lower abdomen but it was a decent load.
Scene Three: Courtney Simpson, everyone's favorite Arizona cheerleader, was up next in her flight attendant outfit as she engaged in boring small talk with Kris Knight on the couch by the fireplace. I liked that they slowly warmed up and that she wore no panties but she didn't seem to have any chemistry with him as she sucked him off. He did a better job on her orally and I'm not sure what happened, though even then she seemed to be mechanically spouting off the words (she can be really hot in a scene so I don't know why she seemed so distant). When she was on top, it was a decent vaginal ride but otherwise she seemed to be going through the motions and that made it a filler scene for me. The pop shot went to her face and chest for those who care.
Scene Four: Isis Love, an exotic hotty with an all natural body, was up next in bed with stranger Steven St. Croix, as they dispensed with the tease in favor of getting right down to business. He snacked on her crack and she blew him in return, showing that the fundamentals were covered but this was another scene that fell short of their skills. She did PTM at least as much as anyone else in the movie and provided a fair ride but they were not clicking as they should have done, turning it into a generic porn scene that appeared to be fake through and through. The biggest killer of the scene was when she took four fingers and his cock in her pussy, with him sliding in as easily as could be, removing any doubt of tightness in my mind. The pop went to her crotch and while it was large, it will only appeal to semen lovers.
Scene Five: Carmen Luvana, in yet another generic setting on a couch, was up last with Jerry as she peeled off her clothing quickly to give him a show. He went down on her in return but it was the lamest set up of the movie and I was hoping it might lead to something special. Okay, her blowjob was far better then in her last scene and the face sitting appealed to me so the light was coming on that it might be a decent scene. He wore a condom as he plugged her pussy, with her tearing it up as she rode him as aggressively as I've ever seen her. I was appreciative that the scene was better than it started out but it slowed down midway too, marking it as uneven in terms of quality. The pop shot went to her neck and chest.
Bonus Scene: Bound: 2/20/2006: Franchezca Valentina, an appealing brunette in dominatrix gear, was in the bonus scene with Trent Soluri playing his perfect role; a loser all tied up and bound to obey her commands. Sexually, they did oral on each other and some solid vaginal fucking; making me appreciate that even a low budget bonus scene like this could prove pretty warm for 22.5 minutes. I wish I had seen the whole movie given some of the cast.
Summary: Flight 69 by director Andre Madness for release by Adam & Eve was an uneven experience best suited for completist fans of Carmen Luvana. The non-sex roles by Steve and Slick were funny but truncated, much like the plot elements discarded in favor of largely generic porn sex styled scenes. Following formulas with ladies showing all the chemistry of watching someone mow the yard is not my idea of a good time though there were enough extras and highlights to warrant boosting the rating of Flight 69 to a Rent It status with fans of Carmen probably wanting to see her two scenes more than anything else. The director has made plenty of better movies in his career and even a low budget assembly line effort like this could have been better with more attention to detail. Oh well, like many other flicks focused on the flight attendant theme, it will soon be forgotten by most of you as a weaker effort by all involved.
