Overview

It was a more innocent and glamorous time of travel, when passengers dressed formally, smoking was permitted, and the captain allowed in-flight visits to the cockpit.
But there was another side to the flight attendant's profession. It was also hard, sometimes unglamorous, and often dangerous work.
Stories are set in such exotic locales as Vietnam, Japan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, and Egypt.
BEHIND THE SMILE takes us on a roller coaster ride of laughter and drama, giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the joys and heartaches of working in the airline industry during its most glamorous era.
