Karen Fawkes FoxLunn,
La Ravissante ..... -
Anna remembers that she and
Karen always sang
"I beg your pardon,
I never promised you
a rose garden!"
That song was popular in
the early seventies and
is a time imprint as good as any!
Come fly with us say Air Bahama girls with Irish touch!
The team from Aer Lingus who trained the Air Bahama hostesses l t r: Ann Boyle, Assistant Chief Hostess Atlantic, Marian McCreery, Hostess Training Officer, and Patricia Reynolds, Senior Hostess. Irish passengers flying on the world´s newest airline - International Air Bahama - should not be too surprised if they get a "cead mile failte", a thousand million greetings, from any of the new hostesses. For the girls have just completed an Aer Lingus course similar to that given to Irish hostesses. For the past month, (June 1968) International Air Bahama´s cosmopolitan collection of girls - 26 of them - have been at Dublin Airport learning the intricacies of their trade under the watchful eyes of Aer Lingus hostesses. Apart from their Irish training, Air Bahama´s girls have another link with this country. Their specially designed uniform is a mixture of green, white and orange, with a bare midriff and a cute strawhat to add the Bahamian touch. The girls, from Luxembourg, Sweden, Holland, England and America, with one from Ireland, fly out this weekend to begin fly. First time

LUXEMBOURG AUGUST 1969
My name is Hank Wasiniak and after very happily stumbling upon your website, I wanted to send these two photos in for your collection. Although the date on the photos is March 1970, they were actually taken in August of 1969 in Luxembourg. You will probably know who the hostess is in the photo. My mother and I are to her right. Although I was a boy in the photo, I went on to become a Flight Attendant for Pan Am not too many years later in 1978, and stayed until its bankruptcy in 1991 at which point I went to Delta along with 2,000 of my colleagues. I left Delta in 2004 and am now working as an instructor and supervisor of Initial Training for Flight Attendants at Southwest Airlines in Dallas, Texas. The photos were taken during a holiday we took to Germany to visit my mother’s family. My parents have both passed on now and these photos bring back very happy memories. I still remember how excited I was to fly on Air Bahama. I hope you enjoy them and accept them with my best wishes. Perhaps you would like to pass this photo on to the hostess in the picture. With kind regards, Hank Wasiniak
