Am currently on a plane traveling back to LA and there were no Business Class seats available, so I am flying Economy. Is it me of have the flight attendants gotten "thicker" and older, or are the aisle just narrower than I remember them?
Seriously, I have bashed in the shoulder and head at least 6 times in the last hour by flight attendants' hips and elbows as they pass by.
I remember the days when they were called stewardesses and they were considerably younger, thinner and more attractive...what happened to those "stews."
PS - they were a lot more fun back then too...these will not even crack a smile or laugh at a joke. Lighten up!
It matters where your are going and coming from, they keep the hot ones for Vegas and Miami.
political correctness and feminists........

Cool -- heading for Miami right after new years.
And the airline makes a difference too...
I've found significant evidence (though my sample size is limited to about 15 flights over the last 4 years), that Virgin America employs more of the "younger", "more attractive" version of flight attendants than any other airline I experienced.
I've flown Virgin from JFK - LAX for two round trips, JFK-SFO and JFK - LAS(Vegas) each for a round trip...I don't think that the staff was disappointing on any of those flights.
The flights from BUR to LAS, or LAX to LAS, have younger and more attractive attendants, and the passengers are usually amped as well.
If you ever want an interesting flight go from LA or Burbank to LAS on the Wednesday or Thursday before a big fight.
The plane will be half strippers and prostitutes.
You are right in all counts. Aisle is smaller, attendants are bigger/older.
Blame unions who no longer force women out based on age and looks, an also more opportunities in the workforce than there used to be for women (pharmaceutical reps are the new flight attendants).
Foreign airlines without the same labor laws have the best looking flight attendants. The Asian airlines are the best. Aero Mexico does fine too.
I prefer aisle seats, but do grow tired of getting hit in the elbow by the beverage cart.
When I fly to Asia I like the ones on Cathy Pacific in business class

My next trip is the weekend of Super Bowl but I'm flying on a Friday.
Thanks for the info.
The flight their is usually insane.
Thai Airways has some nice looking flight attendants.
Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, Thai...even budget airlines like Air Asia and EVA do OK.
I agree with Singapore Airlines as well, but like Thai Airways' a little better. I have not flown Cathay Pacific, EVA or Air Asia.
I have a hotel I use sometimes in San Francisco which seems to be where a number of the Asian Airlines put up their crews. It's always packed with hot flight attendants in uniform.
The Wyndham Parc 55 hotel. Not the finest hotel, but not bad and the fore mentioned flight attendants add to the allure.
Singapore Airlines was pretty stellar. The most impressive thing was that they knew my name the second I got on the plane, no manifest or checking my seat -- I was shocked that kind of service still existed on planes.
I was on Sun Country a month back and it was my first flight in years seeing a flight attendant under the age of 40. Two of the women were probably in the 20-25 range, both cute.
I wish was a rice queen...I'd fly to Asia more often!
