BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation, the precursor to British Airways) Cabin Crew Bulletin, June 1969. In the 1960’s and 70’s BOAC used to employ so-called ‘National stewardesses’ (this opportunity appeared only to be available to women but correct me if I’m mistaken) from countries like Japan, India and Pakistan and this edition features one such stewardess from Japan on what was then known as the Polar Route (London - Anchorage - Tokyo). National stewardesses has special uniforms (the Japan one is featured here) and the route had its own brand (also featured here). I’ve also included an article about the new (in 1969) BOAC USA advertising campaign and some examples included in this edition.

It’s been three days and I already feel trapped without my wings. But I do know that the sooner we all put the well-being of mankind over that of ourselves, the sooner this will be over. For the next two months, I’m keeping both feet on the ground , but I can’t wait to be back in the friendly skies taking you and your families around the world with me. ✈️💙 Source
