Flying High: Betty the Pan Am Stewardess with Leslie Goddard

In Leslie Goddard’s historical portrayal, you’ll learn about the real-life experiences of stewardesses for Pan Am in the 1960s. Learn about the strict height, weight and age requirements, about cooking gourmet meals, and much more!

In the 1960s, when jets were new, the stewardess was an All-American fantasy: hostess, nurse, cook, therapist, and even sex symbol. In this historical portrayal, Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., takes us on an exciting, true story about the real-life stewardesses for Pan Am, the most glamorous U.S. airline of its time. Learn about serving the rich and famous; the strict height, weight, and age requirements; cooking gourmet meals; and enduring some wild rides. Buckle up-this is one flight you won't forget.
