Product description

Review

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
