Quoting FlyboyOz (Reply 10): Nope 11 is northwest...Qantas never have a red hat
25 doesnt look like AC...i think number 3 is Air Canada
AC flight attendants wore green back in the 70's not their current dark blue motif.
QF never wore red hats?! Well I'll eat my words cuz I change my mind I don't think its QF but the QF website does show that they did wear red hats in that style. But I think 14 is Qantas the uniform from the late 60s

Number 12 is definitely United. That was a very memorable uniform. It also came in Navy Blue, which I saw more often than the red version. And I think number 17 really is Braniff, I think that's the end of the "air strip" uniform.

I am sure with
I think this might be
3 Lufthansa (and not Pan Am), because of the blouse style
6 Iberia (poncho style coat)
8 SAS (must be one of the light blues)
9 KLM (must be one of the lighter blues)
15 BOAC (must be one of the dark blues)
24 Air France (must be one of the very dark blue with a high collar)
25 Air Lingus (shouldn't it be green too?)
National is still missing, weren't they yellow or orange at that time?
And what about World, Sabena, Condor, El Al, South African and TAP? They are on the picture belonging to this group of the first 25.
