Flight Attendant

Colonial Airlines, 1950s

Colonial Airlines broke with tradition in the early 1950s and began to serve alcoholic beverages on its New York–Bermuda flights. The rest of the industry quickly adopted this successful and profitable marketing tool. Macivor Celeste wore this uniform as a Colonial flight attendant.
