Compiling the reminiscences of fellow cabin crew from the 1940s to the 1980s, the author provides a fascinating, frank and sometimes funny portrait of life in the skies during the halcyon days of air travel. Filled with 90 colour and black-and-white photographs this will appeal not just to former cabin crew, but seasoned air passengers too. Fasten your seat belts for a nostalgic and illuminating flight. --This England, Autumn 2009
The Girls don t get much of a look-in in aviation literature, so this book recalling the golden age of the air stewardess is welcome.....This delightful book will please anyone interested in airline history, with its many stories of a changing world seen through the eyes of the 'stew' ***** Absolutely Outstanding, MIKE HOOKS --Aeroplane, September 2009

How social manners meant something and people could be nice to others.
Look where we are now ! and they say things improve...
Do buy this bok, I suspect it wont be around long, as many dont like to be reminded how good some parts of The Good Old Days were, Vs where we have gone.
Its simple proof of how our social structure has fallen apart, if you enjoy social history and air travel you will love this book.
