Overview

Remember when flying was glamorous and sexy, even fun? When airline food was gourmet, everyone dressed up for a flight, and stewardesses catered to our every need-at least in our imaginations? This classic memoir by two audaciously outspoken young ladies, who lived and loved the free-spirited stewardess life, jets you back to those golden days of air travel-from the captain who's as subtle as a 747 when he's on the make to the passenger who mistakes the overhead luggage rack for an upper berth; from the names of celebrities who were a pleasure to serve (and some surprising notables on the "bad guy" list) to the origins of some naughty stereotypes-Spaniards are the best lovers, actors the most foul-mouthed. This huge bestseller, a First Class jet-age journal, offers a hilarious gold mine of outrageous anecdotes from the high-flying and amorous lives of those busty, lusty, adventuresome young women of the swinging '60s known as "stews."

Editorial Reviews

USA Today
Believe it or not, flying on commercial airlines 35 years ago was boffo. If you're sitting in a cramped seat eating your stale pretzels, think back to when chateaubriand was carved seat-side. In coach.

If you're having a hard time wrapping your mind around that, proof has just hit the shelves in the reissued 1967 pulp classic Coffee, Tea or Me?: The Uninhibited Memoirs of Two Airline Stewardesses by Trudy Baker and Rachel Jones with Donald Bain. — Ayesha Court
Library Journal
Released in 1967 during that decade's sexual revolution, this book was one of the darlings of the free love generation. The text essentially is a litany of all the passes by pilots, businessmen, film producers, artists, etc., made at the two authors while they served the friendly skies. It's kitschy by today's standards but still can be fun as a relic of another age. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
