The first air hostesses starting working for Aeroflot in 1939, although they were called dinner ladies. Landing a job was no easy task though as the entry requirements were strict: dinner ladies could not be any taller than 162 cm or weigh more than 52 kg. 'My profit is time: One day by train, One hour by plane'. There were a lot of jokes about it as there were no other airlines in the USSR so it was impossible to fly with other companies. However, the message behind the slogan was to convince passengers to use planes over trains, Aeroflot’s main competitor.

Western was my favorite airline in my youth and this book tells a wonderful story of how this company was a part of the largest transcontinental carrier, only to be forcefully broken apart and taken back to it's origional LA to Salt Lake City route. This well writen account tells of the many struggles of route growth, merger attempts, good and bad management, and the success of a well crafted ad campaign. Robert Sterling has an incredible grasp of airline history and how to bring the reader into the back room and inner dealings of the air companies.

Not many authors can write non-fiction that become page-turners. Robert J. Serling certainly could. He so eloquently brings out the human element of the history of companies, in this case the fascinating history of America's "most senior airline" - Western Airlines. Anyone with an interest in or connection to the airline industry of yesteryear would want this history on his/her bookshelf, probably together with the other volumes Serling wrote about American, Alaska, Continental, Eastern and TWA.

Engagingly written, this book traces the history of WAL from the days of biplanes to the advent of the DC-10. It's grounded in interviews with many who were there and features wonderful anecdotes of the kind you might hear if a bunch of old airline people got together for a few beers. It is also the story of old-school management, both visionary and short-sighted. Western experienced more than its share of turmoil at the top, and Serling documents this with insight into the personalities as well as the issues. Though the story ends in the mid-70s, before deregulation, it is nonetheless a fascinating look at the nuts and bolts of the airline business in its early decades.
