About I Was a Jet Set Stewardess: In the 1960s, jetliners changed passenger travel forever. They also changed the lives of a few fortunate women. Go back to this golden age of commercial flight, when pilots looked like movie stars, passengers ate seven-course meals, and young, charming stewardesses became the glamorous faces of the industry. Through interviews and anecdotes, the film details the evolution of the “air hostess,” how they became icons for a generation, and why the jet set era opened new career horizons that many women could only dream of.
