Generally, no matter how much frustrating unpredictability you experience in the skies, you can count on attentive, well-dressed flight attendants as your saving grace.

Mexicana, which is North America's oldest airline, went bankrupt in August and has suspended service. We're not sure where you can buy the calendar, of which only 4, copies were printed.

We shall now observe a moment of silence for the golden age of travel, those madcap, Mad Men days when airplanes had piano bars and carved-at-your-seat chateaubriand, when the cabin crew was dressed by Emilio Pucci and the passengers dressed up too, when men were men and flight attendants were stewardesses. So we are looking for young ladies who have a flair for making people happy, young ladies with just the right blend of friendliness, competence and poise.
