by Fumiko Takahashi (published by: Ronin Books)
Told by a stewardess who flew for Pan American Airways for 16 years. From Japan’s post-war survival to Pan Am’s training school in Florida and around the world, this book covers the1960’s and ’70’s jet-set lifestyle, Pan Am’s rise and fall, celebrity and stewardesses stories, all told from an insider’s point of view.
Pan Am’s stewardesses were called ‘Princesses of the Sky’.
