WATCH: 80yo flight attendant still flying high

Back in the days when smoking was still allowed on planes and attendants wore gloves, Bette Nash was there.

The smoke has gone, along with the gloves, but Bette is still there.

The now 80-year-old has become an internet sensation after she was featured in a Facebook video telling the story of her 60-year career, which included meeting former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.


Bette reveals she fell in love with the idea of being a flight attendant when seeing the crew boarding a flight back in 1952.

The video by CNN features on the Airline Staff Rates page and has been viewed 1.5 million times and had over 22,000 shares.
