Leslie Goddard as Pan Am Betty

Leslie Goddard as Pan Am Betty In-Person

Fasten your uniform buttons and get ready to travel back to the golden age of air travel. 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., returns to take you on an exciting journey into the lives of the real-life stewardesses for Pan Am, the most glamorous U.S. airline. 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.
