Welcome aboard! Sit back and fasten your seatbelts for a first class flight through history with the new and expanded Come Fly With Us! Tenth Anniversary Edition!
In the 1930s, the first stewardesses were registered nurses whose duties included fixing loose chairs, loading baggage, swatting flies and carrying a railroad timetable for stranded passengers. By the 1940s, stewardesses were released to the war effort to do their patriotic duty, and by the 1950s, they were viewed as wives in training, as adept at preparing a baby’s bottle as mixing a martini.
The Swinging Sixties and early Seventies saw female flight attendants used as marketing tools to lure male business passengers aloft. Some were dressed in micro-minis, go go boots and buttons that read ”Pure, Sober and Available”; others did an airborne striptease. From the no-frills U.S. airlines of the 1980s to Asian carriers who name and bless each plane, to dynamic new players worldwide, the industry has changed and grown by leaps and bounds.
Bring your seat to its full, upright position to explore the 10th Anniversary Edition of Come Fly With Us! It’s chock full of exciting new images, new chapters, updates and information on the fashions aloft, new airlines and the ever-evolving duties of flight attendants worldwide.
