From humble working-class roots, growing up with a mother who struggled to make ends meet and a father away at war, Betty had always dreamed of bigger things. She secured herself an interview for the Pan Am training programme, and at just 22 was selected to begin a career that would change the course of her life. Betty said goodbye to everything she knew and boarded a plane to New York. Under the watchful eye of her 'housemother', Dottie, Betty mastered the art of being the perfect Pan Am stewardess. But no amount of training could have prepared her for the rollercoaster of life in the air. This book charts the gruelling yet fabulous life aboard the most iconic airline there has ever been.
