I travel often across the U.S. to Europe and back often, and I can vouch for this piece from former flight attendant, teacher, and burlesque performer, Blissom Booblé. Here’s a sample.
Lips And Tips
A reference to a flight attendant’s matching fingernails and lipstick.
Otherwise known as on premise reserve, standby reserve, and “the couch,” but most accurately described as hell. The hot room at the airport is where they stick reserve flight attendants for a block of time so the airline can use them at will.
An affectionate term used to describe veteran flight attendants.
