The Flight Attendant Project
The Flight Attendant Project was inspired by my mother’s 13 year career with Eastern Airlines. While growing up, my mother's stories from her days with Eastern always kept me wanting to hear more, so a few years ago I decided to embark on this journey to record not only her stories, but also the stories of her retired friends as well as current crew members. Over the decades, a lot has changed within the airline industry. The purpose of this project is to give audiences insight into who airline employees are today, who they used to be and the unique stories that make up all their lives.
The flight attendant project aims to address unique ways in which crew members create home for themselves; I hope to highlight individual ideas of home as well as how a place becomes a home through the unique experiences of a flight attendant, pilot, or other member of the airline industry.
