Next year's reunion will serve to honor all former FTL cabin crew members during our Flight Attendant Recognition Banquet. Friday night will entail a costume theme of Freedom Bird Flights at the Palm Springs Museum.  So be thinking of what you’d like to wear.  We can even have a contest!  Who looks like Hot Lips the best?  (John is thinking of coming as Klinger!)  Wear your old in-flight uniform or make a new one.  Be creative.  I’ve been looking for the Tiger pettipants we used to wear.  If anyone knows of a source for them please let me know.  We did wear our skirts pretty short back then!

I am planning on ordering a special ladies top for the Palm Springs reunion and need to get an idea of what sizes to order.  This includes all ladies, F/A’s and significant others.  There is no commitment to buy one, but I need an idea of how many and the sizes to order.  So if you would just send me an email with a size; S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, etc.  I will only keep track of sizes – no names.  With upwards of an expected attendance of 400+, this will be very helpful to me.

I’d like to see our F/A artists come out of the woodwork!  I know there are a lot of you out there.  For next year we’d like to see the F/A’s design our annual poster.  Using the theme, “Flight Attendant’s contribution to 50 years of Freedom Bird flights”, use your creative flair to design next year’s poster.  The winner will receive, besides notoriety, a gift certificate to the Hangar.  The deadline for submitting your poster is February 1, 2018.

I would like to produce a special pamphlet of memories for everyone of the following:

  • Let me know when and how you were hired
  • What story would you like to share?  Someone or something that made your flying memorable?  I won’t use your name if you don’t want.  We had some good times and some scary ones!

Lastly, I need volunteers to help sell FTLPA merchandise in the Hangar at Palm Springs. Please contact me if you can help. Below are the hours we plan to have the Hangar open to the attendees:

Wednesday 3pm to 5pm & 7pm to 9pm
Thursday 9am to 11am, 1pm to 5pm, & 7pm to 9pm
Friday 9am to Noon only
Saturday 1pm to 4pm only
Sunday 8:30am to 10am only

Thanks! See you in Palm Springs.
