THE SAN FRANCISCO TRAIL
Young and happy with an exiting work and proud working for ONA having the emblema on my chest. This is a story that can happen to anyone at any time. We had a ferry flight coming in from Tokyo to Travis Air Force base in the northern California. Being a bit tired and worn off after the flight standing in the front of the terminal building I felt a bit for going to the toilet. I told the crew, whom all were waiting for a limousine to take us to San Francisco. I went down and having the ONA wings on my shirt and two stripes on my shoulders felt very proud. The whole terminal was crowded by soldiers and some were looking at me as I strolled down, all probably wondering who the hell I was. I went down to the toilet and as usual I always put some toiletpaper on top of the toiletring before doing my needs. When ready I did as you have to do, put my trousers on and went up the stairs and in to the hall and as I was walking through down again I felt that a lot of the people in the hall were looking at me. I felt like a lion, proud, young and happy. Coming out to the ONA crew I leaned against the wall. I felt like a king! Suddenly one of the stewardesses asked me - what the hell is flying in the back of you? I turned around and found myself having a long peace of toilet paper trailing after me. I had actually been walking through the hall with a long peace of toilet paper hanging from the top of the back of my trousers (probably 50 cm), off course I directly understood why people were looking at me while passing through the terminal. The whole crew were laughing and at that moment I felt like wanting to disappear into the ground, I felt a terrible shame and all of my pride was suddenly gone. I didnt say a word in the limousine. Since then I do check the back of my trousers at all times leaving the bathroom.

Captain Billy Tedder told me that the
cockpit got extra money for performing
the Vietnam flights, but cabin crew had no
extra money! I have kept my cabin-checkout

When the sun hits the sky like a big pizza pie, thatīs amore ....... wonderful memories of stewardesses of 1966, hitting metropolitan New York sitting in a top down American car cruising along Fifth Avenue at midnight listening to the radio playing Strangers in the Night, Frank Sinatra and glorious airline life, life took on dimensions not even dreamed of for a bunch of unexperienced girls just out of highschool. Las Vegas champagne flights, Vietnam missions and the Shriners to Hawaii! The variation was as wild as the different assignments.

Of the 1966 ONA Swedish cabin attendant recruit Lillemor was the outstanding Miss ONA, putting in ten years of flying!
