An annotated bibliography on the ins and outs of being a flight attendant Ferguson, . Careers In Focus Aviation. 109-111. Print.
In Fergusons Careers In Focus he talks a lot about the history on flight attendants. One thing I found very interesting was although the first passenger flights were in 1911 the commercial aviation industry did not take off until the Kelly Air Mail Act of 1925. This act encouraged the growth of the first commercial airlines.
