Statistically speaking, pilots, flight attendants, flight engineers, aircrew, you MUST be here. It would be great to connect with you!

Anyone?

Hi! Thank you for writing! Everyone knows Pan Am flight attendants are the BEST! I was feeling all alone here, and I know that is statistically impossible. Aircrew statistically have a higher chance of cancer from cosmic ionizing radiation than people who work on the ground.

How long did you fly? I've been flying for the last 30 years, since 1988. I work for United, and when I got hired there in '95, we had a lot of Pan Am F/As who came over and they truly are the best.

I am so sorry to see your dx from your signature, yet encouraged to see you've had no recurrence. Sending prayers your way. And thanks again for answering my call!

Hi Flygirljen,

I just wanted to reply so you know someone is out there! I don't have any experience with your situation, nor do I know anyone flying who does, but I am SURE they are out there. It's just not something you mention in the brief, right? Wishing you warm thoughts and smooth air!
