Just as the 1950s were not nearly as innocent as we now regard them to have been, the swinging times had by sexy early jet age stewardesses were not as hedonistic as we now remember them. Yet, as this book shows, it certainly is fun to do so. This supposed memoir by two Eastern airlines flight attendants was actually an amalgamation of many personalities and events, and in so doing, rises to the level of Swinging Sixties fable. The situations, the lingo, and the stereotypes all ring true. More fun than you will ever have actually flying.
“The general run of people boarding planes in Los Angeles often leaves something to be desired. Their dress, manners and over-all behavior tend on the whole to rank lower than other cities.”
