Ellen Church (L) became the world’s first stewardess on May 15, 1930, working a flight from Oakland to Chicago. Enamored with air travel, Church was a registered nurse and aspiring pilot, but when she approached BAT for a job flying, she was rejected.
However, she also suggested staffing flights with registered nurses to assuage passengers’ fear of flying, which had stifled the growth of air travel through the 1920s. BAT agreed to a three-month trial run, putting Church in charge of hiring eight nurses to work as stewardesses for $125 per month. The women tended to passengers, but early on were also responsible for mechanical odds and ends, even fueling planes.
