5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Clive E. P. Pedley on 28 Oct 2009
Format: Hardcover
Having been a Stewardess with BOAC from 1954 to 1958 I found this an enthralling book, hugely interesting and entertaining as well as being a valuable historical record of an amazing time. The Author captures perfectly the FUN it all was - every trip was an adventure and we all felt this. It is beautifully written and a real page-turner irrespective of whether you have been involved in airlines. I could not put it down.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it brought back so many memories. I was flying with B.O.A.C. in the 60's and it was so different from flying today. It was an opportunity to see the world and meet interesting people at the same time. Unfortunately now the elegance has disappeared.

I just could not put this book down. I was a stewardess in the 60's and early 70's although not for British Airways (BOAC as it was). I could have written most of it myself through experience.
I have ordered several copies for old flying friends. Well done to the writers and contributers to this book.

Format: Hardcover
Excellent product bought as a present and can tell you it has brought back lots of happy memories, absolutely thrilled with content and pictures. This is told as it was without any embellishment. If there has to be one criticism that is the font could have been a little larger or at least in a different bolder typeface to make the words much clearer.

As ex crew myself, I thoroughly enjoyed this fun and truthful account of life as cabin crew. So many of this genre are "written" by disaffected budget airline crew. This reflects a more golden age which can still be found if as a paying passenger you are prepared to pay for premium service.

Very interesting for me as I was a BOAC stewardess in the 60's, flying on Boeing 707's, flying on round the world trips.

Libbie Escolme-Schmidt hits the nail on the head with this book. She beuatifully captures the feeling of what it would have been like to have been in the Flying Business in the 50s and 60s. I found myself reading parts of it over and over again beciase it was so easy to read and so intelligently composed. She really knows how to recall a time long ago and I felt inspired by her stories of events that I am so familiar with being in the profession in 2013. A lot has changed but a lot of it is still exactly the same. She finds the balance and gets it so right in this book.

By C. W. Peck on 9 Dec 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent book that deals with not only the training and experience of cabin crew but also details a lot of operational background. It's a well written and broad insight into the high standards set by BEA,BOAC and latterly British Airways. This book should be of great interest to anyone interested in or connected with commercial aviation.
