Iris Peterson, who has been hailed as the #1 Flight Attendant in the airline industry, is retiring after 60 years on the job at United Airlines. The 85-year-old Peterson began her career in 1946, when flight attendants were required to be single, young, and slim. In 1953, she became the Air Line Stewards and Stewardesses Association's first official lobbyist, and fought to have those discriminatory practices lifted. Link (Thanks, Jan!)
