I was reading the FARs for 19 pax aircraft and its requirments for Flight Attendants. I am not sure if I am reading it right.

If its 19 pax or less you don't need a Flight Attendant?

I thought I been on a Beech 1900 once with a Flight Attendant. Are there any airlines out there that don't have Flight Attendants.

You are correct. Aircraft with 19 seats or less are not required by the FARs to have a flight attendant. If you flew a Beech 1900, you're probably confusing the First Officer with the flight attendant. The FO usually gives the safety briefing and checks to make sure everyone is settled in.

Luckily, on our Be-1900's at Skyway, we have the "autobrief" which we just push a button and it does the brief automatically for us.

Of course we personally told the pax, "Welcome aboard" and "fasten up" manually, but the autobrief handled all of the dirty details.

I remember stories from the 1980s of F/O serving coffee and sandwiches to the passengers here in Germany on Metroliners. Later F/As were hired, funnily (understandably) they had to be very very short to be accepted. As F/O were not hired under that condition of course, they sometimes had quite a hard time on their knees pampering the passengers (no pun intended.....).
