It's the return of the sexy flight attendant!
The new reality show, Fly Girls, premiered on March 24th. The show follows the lives of five young women who share a beachfront home and work on Virgin America's popular Los Angeles-Las Vegas route.
The show is conjuring up a bygone era when flight attendants were called stewardesses, and sex appeal was part of their allure and a lot of it was quite blatant.
In an advertisement for Southwest Airlines that ran in the 1970s a flight attendant says, "Plus one thing that other airlines can never offer, me."
An ad that ran for the now defunct airline Braniff showed a stewardess taking off the top layer of her outfit with a man saying, "On those long flights she'll slip into something a little more comfortable."
Donald Bain wrote the 1967 book, Coffee, Tea or Me? about the lives of two stewardesses which some say tainted the profession.
"They were the crÃ¨me de la crÃ¨me of young womanhood, the airline stewardesses were back then, and the airlines took advantage of that. The airlines sold their sex appeal," according to Bain.
Sexy stewardesses made a come back with Leonardo DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can.
And now that the Fly Girls are on the air, snack time has never been so sexy!
