In the way casinos still encourage their cocktail waitresses to flirt and seduce in order to glue the clientele to carpet, the airlines were once in the same racket:
“In 1979 I flew to Sweden in SAS, and I still can remember the blondes in the pretty uniforms, their eyes, and their smiles. Which means I noticed (maybe too much, given my passion for the Sweden, Norway, and Denmark—although I blame Lego for that one). Those affable, efficient women hosted the Golden Age of aeronautics, being professional, attentive, sympathetic, and yes, absolutely sexy.”
Here is a solid photo-gallery of all their gloriously kicky outfits.
And for some scathingly brilliant commentary on the ad above click here.
We will always be fans of the “What did you bring me, Daddy?” slogan. Ah, the airlines. Soaring air-buses fueled by our Freudian complexes.

What a fun new tumblr!
