"Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away"
It's always fun to take a nostalgic trip and visit the past through glamorous rose colored lenses. Take air travel for instance. No, wait, don't think Wright brothers, that's too far back. Let's look at the refined era of air travel in the 1960's. This is a time when every little boy wanted to grow up to be a pilot and for everyday people, boarding an airplane was viewed as a once in a lifetime event.
What do you picture when you think about flying in the 50s and 60s? We're betting that you're picturing the impeccably dressed flight attendants, or as they were called before the 70s, stewardesses. At this time competition between airlines was fierce. These days you'll be grateful if you get a bag of cookies with your tiny cup of soda. Back in the day airlines might serve steaks cooked to order, turtle soup served in a tureen, and of course whatever cocktails you desired. Naturally, to keep up with this high-flying lifestyle the flight crew had to have plenty of skill. They not only had to serve the complicated meals and announce flight plans and security measures but they had to make sure the social elite stayed securely buckled and in their places.
If you think you could tell Elvis Presley to stop swiveling his hips in the aisle and buckle his seatbelt for landing then you probably would have made a great 1960s flight attendant. You'll look sharp in this bright blue uniform with its retro flair and perky little cap. Just put on your uniform and make that final boarding call, it's time to fly, fly away.
