The early commercial air-travel days in the 1960s-70s were pivotal culturally, especially for women.

Because of the locations of D/FW International Airport and Love Field, our neighborhood is home to several former airline employees. Many stay in touch with one another today.

We’ve met some women who worked as stewardesses (before they became flight attendants) for example, who still are friends today. They remember their experiences fondly, mostly, and enjoy sharing them.

For an upcoming Advocate feature, we are seeking neighborhood women or men who worked for an airline during this legendary era, who can share about the way the industry shaped our city and shaped their lives.

If you or someone you know fits the bill, please email chughes@advocatemag.com with the subject Air Story.
