Vintage Friday: Delta Stewardesses

Posted by Rosepixie on March 19, 2010

Have you ever wanted to be an airline flight attendant?  Well, in 1970 Delta went advertising for stewardesses with this magazine ad.

Sounds like a personal ad for a cute co-ed, doesn’t it?  And you couldn’t really list these as requirements today, even if you were looking for them.  Still, it’s a great window into what Delta expected their stewardesses to be back in 1970, isn’t it?  I wonder where the “1 in 25” figure comes from?
