The First Female Flight Attendants
The nurses earned $125.00 a month and worked alone--only one attendant per plane.
The rules to be an airline attendant were rigid. Due to small cabin size, they couldn't be over five feet, four inches and weigh no more than 118 pounds. They had to be between 20 and 26 years old and single. It wasn't until well into the 1960s that attendants were allowed to be married.
The information and picture for this post came from the U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission.
