That's it. After flying a couple of times to India and within the US on three different airlines, I have finally finished my exhaustive and diligent study of a remarkable hoax, and now deem myself fit to reach a conclusion.

Conclusion: The pretty and beatific female flight attendant does not exist.

Corollary: The myth of the pretty and beatific flight attendant is a myth that has been concocted by the massive aero-industrial complex to lure passengers into using flight as a dominant means of transportation. Trillions of dollars have been made by the efficient propagation of this ruse, and this travesty has only been helped by the appalling intellectual subservience of a population that has already been shown too many false dreams.
During his extensive travels, the author has come across only one concrete example which could possibly subscribe to support of the myth. Needless to say, the evidence is insufficient.

Addendum: The author of this study feels that members of the female gender will support this conclusion with respect to members of the male gender. The author would however hastily like to add that he has no expertise whatsoever in passing this judgement.

Hence, just like the myth of Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Fairy Godmother, this myth too will go down in history as the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. After global warming that is.

What some of the flight attendants can be said to resemble though is the real incarnation of another myth- the Piltdown Man/Woman

Singapore Airlines is one exception at least in my experience as a contradiction to your conclusion. You should fly them sometime.

A friend whose father has been an airline pilot for many years, told me that that indeed used to be the case long ago in the 70s etc. But later on there might have been some litigation related to firing older attendants, judging based on looks that caused the current situation.

Possible sampling error. Please verify with this equation.

Saket: I could believe that...

Hirak: Bingo! In the end, again, 'home is where the heart is'. I need to do more travelling!
