Having said that, the allure and charm, and sheer class that airline hostesses have are unrivaled. And air travel these days is all about comfort, avoiding DVT, keeping hydrated, and not drinking too much at altitude (been there done that) But I think it is sad.
Back in the day air travel was something of an affair - it wasn't just about the destination but the journey. British Airways have launched a campaign about their 90 years in the sky, how their uniforms have been an important part of their branding. They have been carefully crafted by some amazing and celebrated designers; but personally I love the styles of the guests travelling in these videos! It reminds me of an old photograph of my Grandmother getting ready to board a plane back to England in the early 70's. She looked classy she did! Enjoy!
