Daily Mail: FOUR STARS "A stupendously entertaining portrait of an exciting time" ... "This beguiling documentary is full of wonderful first-hand stories from the golden age of jet flight, when the life of an air stewardess was a heady and glamorous affair."

Radio Times: "When they're as well made as this one, these refreshingly straightforward social history docs - find out about a subject by asking a load of ordinary people who were there - are a good option if you want something undemanding and nostalgic without being pap."

The Times: "An interesting piece of social history"

Daily Telegraph: "The Sixties were said to offer a "golden age" of flying, and this entertaining documentary shows why."
