Flight attendant school
How do you deliver a frozen meal in turbulent skies? Or apply just the right amount of makeup to stay fresh for the entire Atlantic crossing? This glance into early flight attendant school shows exactly how TCA’s flight attendants learned the tricks of the trade in the 1950s. Did you know that until 1957, flight attendants had to be registered nurses? Or that in the very early days, they took care of passengers on layovers, finding them hotels and making dinner reservations – even entertaining them during delays? Well into the 1960s, it was also an industry standard that all “stewardesses” meet specific height and weight requirements.
