Here's a salute to the more "senior" cabin crews who fly the world. Their vast and diverse life and on-board experience is invaluable. Besides, what exactly is
"old"? Old is simply a state of mind, one that all too many of us adopt in keeping with the collective opinions on ageing. Many of us are too quick to "Label" one as being "over the hill", yet let us not forget that the respect these men and women of the skies deserve will be the same respect and acknowledgement you and I will expect in the years to come.

I have flown as both a Flight Attendant (5 years in my 20's) and today as a corporate planner. When I was a Flight Attendant, I very much respected and looked up to the more senior attendants, as indeed they exercised a grace and level of patience that all too few of us "juniors" had. Today, I very much look forward to having an "older" crew on-board, as I feel their sense of professionalism is, by and large, much more pronounced and refined than their junior counterparts.

I remember reading an article in "People" magazine a few years ago about a 70 year old Flight Attendant who flew with Delta for 50 years. She came across as an energetic, youthful, compassionate and warm individual, very much loved and respected by her fellow Flight Attendants. In short, she was young at heart, and it showed. To me, it seemed it would be a sad day for Delta indeed when this wonderful woman retired.
She represents over half a century of the carriers legacy and history. Go Girl!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Soooo, here's a salute to the men an women of the skies who have defied the idiotic concept of what society expects from Flight Attendants, in terms of
youthfulness and attractiveness. P.S: Many of these
older women are still very attractive "birds". It comes from life experience, character, and inner strength.
