SAN DIEGO—My son-in-law Shahar Masori is an Israeli-born flight attendant for Delta Airlines.
It's attractive work as he
flies to a variety of places, including to his
native land, and when there is a long enough layover he
can go sightseeing.
But the flight colleagues he
meets are sometimes stories in themselves.
recently met Cyndi Rhodes (at right) on an overseas flight.
A senior flight attendant, now in her very young looking 50s, she had worked for Royal Jordanian Airlines back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, at a time when the late King Hussein used one of that airline's 747s for regular globe hopping.
The king would occupy the upper deck of the jet, and other passengers would be unaware that his
Royal Majesty and his
entourage were aboard.
