    This book was purportedly written by an air hostess totally enamoured of herself and her glamorous career Back then, air hostesses were beautiful, vapid and aspired only to alcohol, sex and marrying a captain or Very Rich Passenger they met in first class Now they are waitresses in the sky if you can get their attention, if they aren t sitting in the galley playing with their phones.There used to be a special regatta for air crew on the island and at that time I had a bar and restaurant right This book was purportedly written by an air hostess totally enamoured of herself and her glamorous career Back then, air hostesses were beautiful, vapid and aspired only to alcohol, sex and marrying a captain or Very Rich Passenger they met in first class Now they are waitresses in the sky if you can get their attention, if they aren t sitting in the galley playing with their phones.There used to be a special regatta for air crew on the island and at that time I had a bar and restaurant right next to the main marina in town All the air crews used to come as I played great music and would stay open until but I had to watch out for the British Airways crew They were alcoholics every one Normally a rum and coke West Indian style is fill a tall glass three quarters full of ice, then rum to half way up that and top up with coke Add a slice of lemon and a straw and Bob s your uncle But the British always thought they were being done out of their rum by the amount of ice we added and usually asked for two or three cubes only watching us with beady eyes pouring in the rum view spoiler Rum was about 2.00 a bottle wholesale, coke was about 2 and a bag of ice was 2 and someone had to go for it The rum, going furthest, was the cheapest part of the drink hide spoiler The BA crew went far beyond that It was a few cubes of ice, rum to the top of the glass and a float, literally 1 4 1 2 of coke And keep em coming.So one day there was a table of about 20 having dinner view spoiler the restaurant was outside under a wooden roof but no walls, lots of vines and a mass of pink and white bougainvillea so not too much mess hide spoiler and I spilled a whole tray of rum and cokes and pina coladas over quite a few of the air hostesses in their fancy evening out dresses I gave them all the batik sarongs we used as tablecloths to wear and they merrily continued on.At the end of the evening I was quite prepared to pay for their dry cleaning but to my amazement they left me a 200 tip Next day, getting in early to clean up, there were two of them still there asleep on the tables That s how it was being an air hostess back in the early 00s The book is frippery, of a time when air travel for the masses hadn t begun and was a novel and special experience for those who could afford the fare It s not really a book worth reading but on the other hand isn t it enough that it s entertainment written by an author with a light touch and good sense of humour 3 stars I liked it Real author is Donald Bain Read 2008, reviewed 2019 When I say, review to come , I generally don t mean 11 years later This review was inspired by Cecily

    I first read this book in 8th grade I unfortunately took it to school where it was confiscated by my fascist English teacher who told me she was disappointed in me And I in turn was disappointed in her for stealing my property, being on the wrong side in the battle for intellectual freedom, and judging my ass for a book she had never read But I was 12 so I just glared at her and fantasized about egging her house I feverishly searched for another copy of the book so I could finish it AND repl I first read this book in 8th grade I unfortunately took it to school where it was confiscated by my fascist English teacher who told me she was disappointed in me And I in turn was disappointed in her for stealing my property, being on the wrong side in the battle for intellectual freedom, and judging my ass for a book she had never read But I was 12 so I just glared at her and fantasized about egging her house I feverishly searched for another copy of the book so I could finish it AND replace it from my parents library before they noticed I then proceeded to read it several times.So, I guess I m saying I m probably biased toward loving this book But regardless, this is a hilarious memoir written in anecdotal form of two stewardesses during the late 60 s I loved them I wanted to hang out in their stew pad with them and listen to stories about drunk passengers and stewardess school and be ins and cheating boyfriends In its own way, it s a brilliant time capsule of a bygone era when airlines and air travel and our culture for that matter were much different and stews had to be hot single chicks The airlines even hired girls to spy on other stewardesses as you learn in one chapter when our heroines get suspended for drinking at a party the night before a flight.Where are you, Trudy and Rachel I still want to hang out My 8th grade English teacher is not invited ETA I recently read an article about this book that spilled the beans that Donald Bain completely made up this story I guess I really hoped and still irrationally cling to the dream that Trudy and Rachel were real The article also pointed out how homophobic this book was Looking back, I can see it although I didn t pick up on it at the time I also would like to think possibly due to my undying affection for this book that the anecdote in question was intended to be a story about an unruly customer who was also homosexual, rather than homophobia masquerading as comedy

    I LOVE airlines and airline culture and all that airplane y goodness I tried to become a flight attendant once and was hired and was hired by a certain AAirline in 2001 but then some stuff happened on September the 11th pause moment of silence and continue and my dream was never realized Somewhere after the point of crushed dreams I got a job at a bookstore and read this book Oh, the hilarity I think that if I had lived in the 60s then this is the life I would have experienced Forget I LOVE airlines and airline culture and all that airplane y goodness I tried to become a flight attendant once and was hired and was hired by a certain AAirline in 2001 but then some stuff happened on September the 11th pause moment of silence and continue and my dream was never realized Somewhere after the point of crushed dreams I got a job at a bookstore and read this book Oh, the hilarity I think that if I had lived in the 60s then this is the life I would have experienced Forget all that hippie stuff this was all martinis and big hair and swingin singles pads Go go boots and dashing men in skinny ties What a glorious time that would have been to fly

    Loved this book as a middle high schooler when I dreamed of living the glamorous life of a flight attendant Recently found out it was not a memoir written by two women at all, but a total lie written by a man I am going to pretend that I never heard that and continue loving it the way I always did.

    This was one of many saucy paperbacks my mother and her friends traded in the 70s as they came to the end of their twenties and wondered if the sexual revolution had passed them by Even in its day it had a reputation as sexist, mainly because it was an open secret that Donald Bain was neither a stewardess or a woman or that he d even interviewed flight attendants as he claimed Not surprisingly, it s basically a man s fantasy of sexual liberation, which, one suspects, isn t all that liberatin This was one of many saucy paperbacks my mother and her friends traded in the 70s as they came to the end of their twenties and wondered if the sexual revolution had passed them by Even in its day it had a reputation as sexist, mainly because it was an open secret that Donald Bain was neither a stewardess or a woman or that he d even interviewed flight attendants as he claimed Not surprisingly, it s basically a man s fantasy of sexual liberation, which, one suspects, isn t all that liberating for women But it s also pulpy fun and part of a whole softcore trend in which you could go to your average drugstore as a kid in the Nixon Ford era and learn all kinds of F and C words you never even knew existed Ford not being one of them I hadn t remembered the homophobia other readers mentioned, so I found a copy Sure enough, there s a lot of that one F word that s plain hateful I m surprised new editions haven t cut that chapter BTW, there was also a book in this same vein about wild teachers in Terre Haute IN but for the life of me I haven t been able to track down a title Help, anyone

    I m sure this is REALLY dated now this from the era when flight attendants were called stewardesses and they were all unmarried women A memoir by 2 of them, that at the time I really enjoyed, and read several times Yes, this is light breezy fluffy But I did learn respect for flight attendants as well because they wrote about the education they needed to do the job, not just about their personal exploits And some of the stories they tell about passengers they have to deal with and about I m sure this is REALLY dated now this from the era when flight attendants were called stewardesses and they were all unmarried women A memoir by 2 of them, that at the time I really enjoyed, and read several times Yes, this is light breezy fluffy But I did learn respect for flight attendants as well because they wrote about the education they needed to do the job, not just about their personal exploits And some of the stories they tell about passengers they have to deal with and about their lives, were pretty funny Embarrassed now to add this book to my roster, but enjoyed it at the time Recommended only if the reader looks at it as a period piece

    Well oh, my Where to begin.When I heard about a book written in the 1960 s by two airline stewardesses, I have to admit that I got excited I imagined a fascinating memoir that would transport me back to a lost era of travel when flying was new and exciting, peopled by glamorous jetsetters Well, this memoir ended up being a complete disappointment The reason that I have placed dubious quotation marks about the word memoir will be explained later.Basically, this is the story of two frie Well oh, my Where to begin.When I heard about a book written in the 1960 s by two airline stewardesses, I have to admit that I got excited I imagined a fascinating memoir that would transport me back to a lost era of travel when flying was new and exciting, peopled by glamorous jetsetters Well, this memoir ended up being a complete disappointment The reason that I have placed dubious quotation marks about the word memoir will be explained later.Basically, this is the story of two friends, Trudy and Rachel both fairly ordinary small town girls who are given a chance at a dream job as flight attendants, or, airline stewardesses With relish, Trudy who is the main narrator of the tale gives readers details of their daily lives, the many cities that they fly in and out of, and the many men that they date The main focus of this book is, undoubtedly, on the men that they date section Indeed, it seems that the main purpose of getting this job in the first place is to eventually land a man that they meet whilst flying I am certain that if asked, Why are you flying the girls would have giggled out To find a man A great number of the chapters of this book are reminiscent of a cheap dating advice column, tailored and trimmed to fit the lives of flight attendants A few examples of chapter topics are Interesting Men, Is He Married , or How to Tell His Profession Even sections about topics that you wouldn t think had any relation to dating and flirting somehow become almost exclusively about just that.I got excited when I saw that one chapter included a list of cities, and a few paragraphs of Trudy s opinions on all of them This excitement quickly turned to exasperation when I found that it was all about men the review for Chicago complained that the men were too hard to find there, that Miami men were fun, or this cringeworthy review of Detroit They make cars in Detroit, and men make cars We like Detroit Facepalm.This little book is positively riddled with inappropriate sexism, which all seems to be quite accepted by Trudy For example, she tells a story about a captain who is notorious for his habit of calling in new stewardesses and basically commanding them to put their breasts in his face, even saying that they must come back and do this every twenty minutes for the rest of the flight This is all seen as great, harmless fun by Trudy, as something to wink and giggle about Bottoms are pinched, breasts are groped, and the girls seem to accept this with giggles and eye rolls, and a boys will be boys sort of attitude And disturbingly, when a group of girls are recounting their latest news, Rachel asks Trudy as a joke Haven t you been raped lately Then we get to the chapter entitled They Looked So Normal The very first sentence informed me that this one would be about homosexual men and women you meet on a flight Inwardly, I groaned Oh no Well, as you might guess by now, it was bad Really bad First there are the stereotypes that gay, or fay, men arehandsome andwitty Okay, not so bad, I guess Then comes a strange fact that a higher percentage of Europeans are gay, and that s why stewardesses flying in Europe are safer Trudy admits that some girls I guess not her do seem to enjoy being friends with gay men She then says that however, in general, none of us wants that man around She then tells us that effeminate men on their flights are normally very pleasant, intelligent, polite, and offer no trouble at all Okay, great, right Wrong She then turns right around and sums this up with But despite these apparent advantages, their very presence is unnerving and disconcerting There is also an episode that is so utterly ridiculous, it is sad Two male passengers are seated next to each other, when one of them calls Trudy over and requests to be moved, because of the magazine the man is reading Trudy smiles, expecting it to be a Playboy which she seems fine with Instead, it s somethingalong the lines of Playgirl, and she is shocked, calling it awful and the sickest magazine I ve ever seen Of her own accord, she reports this to the captain, and narrates the rest of the tale referring to the man as the faggy fellow The story then becomes unbelievable the captain confronts the man, who immediately begins making lewd come ons to the captain, and attempts to lead other passengers into whipping him Also, I gathered from this chapter that gay seems to be synonymous with pervert here.At the end of the chapter, Trudy wraps it up in a conclusion that does not seem to fit with her disgust and judgement at all, saying As long as gay passengers behave, we couldn t care less Many of the tales in the book seem to ring of insincerity For example, a friend of theirs who dated a mobster angrily refused him when he asked her to sleep with a business friend He then makes a cold, chilling speech in retort, complete with gangster slang a rambling paragraph of a speech And yet, this did not even happen to Trudy.Another chapter tells a story of a girl who always seems to have extra cash to spend, who is always going out alone Trudy suspects that this is because the girl is secretly prostituting herself on the side because what else, right She organizes a room switch with the girl, to receive the gentleman caller in a sort of sting operation, and her suspicions are proven correct Eye roll Believe it or not, the book gets worse There is an awful chapter generalizing men from different countries You can most likely see already that this is heading toward rampant racism, and you are correct.Arab men are, according to Trudy, rapists with harems, and she even has the nerve to say that they are this way because, apparently, Women of Saudi Arabia are not attractive by any stretch of imagination What There are dozens of countries included, each bestowed with a few paragraphs of ignorant stereotyping, but for Japan the only Asian country included at all , Trudy gives us only one ghastly sentence, about miniaturization having no advantage in sex Wow.There s certainlyto dislike about the book and make you want to throw it across the room I read an ebook version on my phone, or maybe I would have The girl s arch nemesis is a girl whose only crime is that she has enviously large breasts and in every sentence she is featured in, her breasts are mentioned Trudy talks about the airline s policy of firing girls who become fat and wholeheartedly agrees with it She says that girls gaining weight certainly warrant getting laid off, because that shouldn t be allowed She also says that getting pregnant should certainly result in being fired, as well Can it get worse Well, whether this makes it worse or not, I found out after finishing the book that it was all completely fakeThis memoir is actually not a memoir at all, and was written by a man named Donald Bain in 1967 Well, these laughable depictions of women and winking in reaction to getting assaulted certainly makesense now And, evengratingly, someone apparently had an idea that this book should be written, and set out to find some female flight attendants to interview and potentially write it But, apparently, they selected the best two young ladies in the entire industry, and the interviewer quickly realized that they were too dull and stupid to ever write a book, or have enough wit to come up with material for a story of their lives He dismissed them, and admitted that he then took a few of their stories, but mostly his own experiences, and fit them into a flight attendant book What on earth Please do not read this book, unless perhaps for research on how NOT to view the world

    Still fulfilling it s original intent, offering a humorous and informative look into the lives of sky waitresses now with the added, unintended, quality of offering a look into the norms and s of people living half a century ago as well.

    This was the book that taught me four things about my mother 1 Never try to sneak around with a forbidden book.2 I could read anything I wanted as long as she had a chance to go over it with me.3 Mom thought the idea of a fat lady getting stuck on an airplane toilet was funny.4 She could tell truth from fiction, and she knew this book was totally made up, by a man It was a good thing I didn t bet her anything, because my 13 year old self bought it hook, line and sinker.
