Could some of it have to do with the mannish, more aggressive attitude of many modern American women? And let’s not get started on the influx of weird/homo-acting stewards.
Faggies are huge in the flight attendant ranks and often show attitude toward hetero couples. My wife & I were on a flight where the male flight attendant was treating us with such courtesy & pleasantries that we asked how does he deal with being separated from his own wife on long flights.
He replied, “I’m not married!” We pointed to the wedding band on his left hand.
He laughed & said, “That’s my `fag deflector’. Lots of fags work in the airlines and this keeps me from getting hit on.”
Or just due to the fact they're union workers, and simply don't have to give a damn.
Oh for the days of the 1960s when Stewardesses were real WOMEN!
Remember the adds for THE AIR STRIP! Stewardesses in shorts. “Coffee, tea, or Me!”. Now the most beautiful adds on TV are for the Korean Airlines. A little thin, but nice.
