Not sure what the slugger prowess of stews has to do with running an airline. Nowadays, they could use a baseball bat for drunk-passenger control.

Fifty years on and you have to wonder what happened to Ms. Krieger?

And who wants to fly to Detroit anymore? Cleveland is bad enough.

In the event of boredom on an extremely long flight, your seat cushion can be used as first, second, or third base. The early 747's were actually pretty spacious before the airlines decided to see how many seats they could squeeze into them.

The baseball hat would also be useful in the case of rowdy customers who try to bat the stewardess, while the jackstrap could be used to defend herself against harassment. She will really need the running shoes as well. Frankly, the stewardesses should wear the catcher's equipment; helmet, breastplate, jackstrap and shoes.

Maybe it's just the poor resolution, but it sure looks like she's stomping on businessmens' carry on luggage....
