Back in the 60s stews had to be single, attractive and thin, today as anyone can tell you flight attendents don't have to be any of these things. Sex seemed to be a game both men and women were playing. Today romance on the job isn't much fun at all. Back then flying was still fun. Today it's more like Dante's Inferno. Rachel & Trudy occasionally dealt with pervert passengers, and often with drunks and rotten kids but the whole phenomenon of air rage was stil unknown.
Some of the observations Rachel and Trudy made about certain types of male passengers were considered beyond the pale back in '67, today we don't even give it a second thought. Check out their comments on page 237 and you'll see what I mean. One more thing I noticed about this funny book. It couldn't be written today. The whole mind numbing political correctness movement would've made an editor cut out whole chapters. The book will make you smile and it's like a historical artifact to boot.It's a peep into a swinging lost world.
Amazon has this book listed under "non-fiction" but the publisher, Penguin, lists it as fiction on their own site.
If you are looking for a tell-all from two real stewardesses from the sixties, you will not find that in this book. If you want an entertaining read that takes a lot of creative license about fictional characters in that period, then this is for you.
This isn't a literary work, but it is a great beach read. Don't expect too much, and you'll be thrilled to join these two "women" on their careers. I was born well after the 60's, and it is fun to imagine how classy and upscale air travel was back then. It's certainly a contrast to the budget consciousness of today.
It was definitely a page turner, because I wanted to keep having more adventures in the crazy life of 60's stewardesses. Check this one out and have fun for a few hours.
I've read the whole series and they all are great.
you could read this book over and over again and never get tired of it.
I reccommend this book to anyone.

This book is full of anti-gay slurs, including an entire chapter condemning gay men. The author should have fixed this in the revised edition.Published 1 day ago by Scott Mathews
