“Bette’s the world’s oldest flight attendant”
A Boston woman who has been working for American Airlines for 65 years was named the world’s longest-serving flight attendant by Guinness World Records.
Bette Nash, 86, started working as a flight attendant in 1957 and continues to this day without ever stopping.
Guinness said Nash is also the oldest flight attendant in the world.
Nash said that the job has changed considerably since the early days. “You had to be a certain height, you had to be a certain weight. It used to be horrible.
You put on a few pounds and you had to keep weighing yourself, and then if you stayed that way, they would take you off the payroll,” she said.
