In the 1930s the first stewardesses were registered nurses who not only escorted passengers but repaired loose chairs, loaded baggage, and carried a railroad timetable to help passenger planning! By the 1950s they were bartenders and waitresses, and today they are limited enforcers of regulations. COME FLY WITH US! A GLOBAL HISTORY OF THE AIRLINE HOSTESS pairs vintage color photos with ads and colorful insights on the changing role, culture and appearance of airline a stewardesses around the world. A lively, colorful survey will interest any who fly.
