A high-flying tribute to the lives, careers, and legacies of stewardesses, this book answers questions and debunks misconceptions about the first ladies of the sky—from the first days of flight to today's mammoth Airbus 380s. Featuring more than 200 photographs, which document the early days of the job when stewardesses were registered nurses and had to fit certain height and weight criteria, this work showcases how airlines have changed their concept of service over the years. By weaving historical images and documents with firsthand experiences, this book stands as a testament to the immense and lasting influence that stewardesses have had on the world's airlines.
