    Great historical story! I’d like to hear more for the first Stewards back then!
    I have 22yrs with Swa (WN LUV USA)! Based in BWI & MDW. Praying for our jobs right now. The industry is hurting. Thanks

      Haha, hey there Sean! Only now really looking in here this many months after you replied. Glad you enjoyed the interview article. I fly for WN as well based in DAL.

    Great story! I was hired as a steward for Pan Am in 1954. Went over to UAL on Pac day 1986. I flew 32 years for Pan Am & 26 years for UAL. Took early retirement at age of 82! Always out of SFO. Now living in Ashland Oregon and serving on the Ashland airport commission. Barney Spera

      Dear Bernard,
      Thank you for leaving a comment on our site. We’ve been on hiatus for far too long and hope to add a host of new stories in 2020. We’d love to speak with you about your Pan Am years. If you are interested you can email me at either clippercrew@outlook.com or panamforever@outlook.com. Many thanks. Jocelyne Harding

    Having read Phil Tiemeyers book and his accurate tracking of men in Cabin Service, he indeed pays lovely tribute to Amaury Albert Sanchez and honours him greatly. Yes, the story of Mr Sanchez is one I have read over and over. I feel proud to work in the ranks of Cabin Crew in New Zealand and be a part of a thriving and fascinating profession.

    I’d be fascinated to learn of the Pam Am Flight Radio Officers. ( My father was one…)

    I am the grand niece of one of Pan Am’s first “brother” stewards to fly for Pan Am. They were two of three local Key West gentlemen that were employed by Pan Am and there is reference to them in both old copies of the Key West Citizen from the mid-late 1930’s as well as articles of them being part of the first crew members to log over a million miles flying. Please contact me if you would like copies of these articles on my great-uncles Nilo and Mario Borges. Thank you for these interest pieces of memorabilia as well.

    Very interesting — I especially liked the personal touches. Great research considering the time passed and records problems.
