Pan Am stewardesses recall glamour, turbulence 50 years on



I was a flight attendant for Delta before my children were born. I LOVED IT!!!


It’s my understanding that American Airlines called airline stewardesses “flight attendants” as early as 1972. BTW, check this out.


I am just glad no smoking is permitted on flights anymore. That must have been awful.


Enjoyed reading this. Pan Am. was a favorite of mine to fly in the past.


I always thought it would be really cool to be a stewardess or flight attendant. You’d get to travel as part of your job and while you likely wouldn’t have much time to spend in other places, it’d still be pretty neat.
