New York – They’ve been to Cuba, to China, and just about everywhere in between—but in a historic first, PETA’s sexy “Lettuce Ladies,” who wear only strategically placed lettuce leaves, will depart from John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday on their first-ever flight to Russia.

When:    Saturday, August 5, arriving at 3:30 p.m. for a 7:10 p.m. flight. Available between 4:15 and 5 p.m.

Where:    Departures Level at Terminal 1, JFK Airport

As vegan ambassadors for PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—the ladies will wear their iconic leafy bikinis and display signs that proclaim, “Turn Over a New Leaf: Go Vegan” (in English) and “Start Fresh: Choose Veganism” (in Russian).
