Your Say

Am I missing something?
When did the airlines start hiring hairy-faced, man-like stewardesses?

Saaaaay, weren't ALL those original flight attendants ALSO Registered Nurses?

Maybe we should change the name stewardess to A.I.D.S..

I do not believe it can be said any better than the photos provided. I really miss the 70's

Not only that, but they're a bit tubby, too.

The first time I ever flew was in the 70's and if was enjoyable. I flew everywhere, nationwide and to distant countries.

The last time I flew was from a hunting trip in Alaska to Seattle and I had 4 firearms, hundreds of rounds of ammo *in the cabin with me* as well as a long sheathed knife on my belt and several folders in my pockets.

That was in 1980, and I haven't been on another one since, nor will I ever.

Gerard, have you no mercy, sir? History lessons like this can make grown men cry.

I used to fly PSA all the time. The last flights all the stews got out the mini's and the boots and wore 'em. The ladies were all really proud that the uniforms still fit. They were hotties. Snorts, paws ground.

Just think, all them queers fought so hard for equality, now they can be flight attendants. They must be thrilled, to get jobs that everyone else from traditionalists to radical feminists think are unacceptable. Oh, well, somebody has to be the losers. The consolation prize is a punch in the face, but only to those that do not beg to get one.
