I've found these good old time Japanese television productions that feature the glamorous life of JAL flight attendants from the 70s and 80s. They're really cool - the music is quite catchy and there's great JAL plane action. From what I understand they were extremely popular in their era - to a certain extent partially responsible for motivating Japanese tourist to travel so much after the 70s. The Japanese economy was booming and the people were encouraged to travel abroad with programs like these.




Attention Please - a TV program from the 70s.



A Stewardess Story - a soap opera of a cute but dorky JAL F/A.



A Stewardess Story - I think this was the ending. Awesome video.



Pan Am sponsored program called The World Around Us.


They're awesome - don't you agree. The world airline industry was going through much happier times then.

This program was remade in 2006 by Fuji TV starring the beautiful Aya Ueto as Misaki Yoko, a new JAL FA trainee. They also made 2 specials in 2007 and 2008. Below is the 2007 special.

Yes, the program was remade but they did so much more in the 1970s.

I heard that JL actually flew a DC-10-40 to curve around HND and JL cooperated so much more. When the drama was aired in 2006, I was sort of disapointed with the pilot scenese because it wasn't as real as the 1970s.

I only watched part of this series. Mainly because of Misaki (who became a spokeswoman for JAL in Commercials) and Aya. I liked how Aya's character was a former Punk singer who decides to take a job at JAL as a FA. She is not JAL material in the eyes of the senior FA but is a breath of fresh air for others.

My favorite Japanese aviation show was "Good Luck" (2003) with Kimura Takuya. This one he is a pilot for NH. I personally enjoyed Shiba Ko (yao) the mechanic with a crush on Kimutaku who had lost her parents in an accident and cannot get on a plane other than to fix it.




Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!
