America by Air

"In 1930, Ellen Church became the first airline stewardess after convincing Boeing Air Transport that the presence of women nurses would help relieve passenger fears of flying."
And the project turned out to be a huge success. Men with an economy good enough to chose to be transported by air in the 1930s and 1940s proved her right. Stewardesses have a soothing and comforting effect.
Training groups and schools were set up - and the requirements soon were hard to live up to.
I wouldn't have made it. And I'm pretty girlish, service minded and long enough
