Who Knew?

The first flight attendants were men whose main job function was to handle baggage. When United Airlines decided to put women on their planes in 1930, all of the stewardesses they hired were nurses, based on the theory that nurses would be the most capable of handling passengers' needs on bumpy flights.

Excerpt from "I Never Knew That!"
