‘Queen of Aloha’ works final flight, fondly recalls different era of flying

HONOLULU - When Patti Smart was hired as an Aloha Airlines stewardess 50 years ago, it was a different job for a different time.

She rubbed elbows with Frank Sinatra, performed in-flight fashion shows and danced in smoke-filled aisles aboard cramped DC-3s seating two dozen passengers.

Boy, I bet they were glad to get rid of her. Now they can hire some 20 year old for $18K a year and save money. I'm sure she was making good dough.
