Flight attendants or cabin crew (also known as stewards/stewardesses, air hosts/hostesses) are members of an aircrew employed by airlines primarily to ensure the safety and comfort of passengers aboard commercial flights, on select business jet aircraft. Female flight attendants rapidly replaced male ones, and by 1936, they had all but taken over the role. They were selected not only for their knowledge but also for their characteristics. A 1936 New York Times article described the requirements: "The girls who qualify for hostesses must be petite; weight 100 to 118 pounds; height 5 feet to 5 feet 4 inches; age 20 to 26 years. Add to that the rigid physical examination each must undergo four times every year, and you are assured of the bloom that goes with perfect health." In the United States, they were required to be unmarried and were fired if they decided to wed.

Resolution Guide:

4k: The highest-quality, premium video size at 4x the pixels of standard HD resolutions. Get the sharpest possible image and best color depth by integrating 4k footage into your creative work. For further editing control, look for the “R3D” file type, if available. 4k clips are usually recommended for high-end commercial use, within the limits of the item’s releases and royalty-free license.

HD (High Definition or Hi-Def): The hi-res industry standard in 1080 & 720 sizes. HD is the best size for modern TVs, general video streaming (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), and is also generally applied in commercial & editorial uses within stated legal limits.

SD (Standard Definition): Standard def is the traditional size of TVs up until the mid-2000s. Currently, SD is the minimum quality needed to digitally stream content, and usually less expensive than HD or 4K. SD is also ideal for personal creative projects.
