Norma Heape, Continental's Longest-Serving Flight Attendant, Speaks (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Meet Norma Heape: Continental's longest-serving flight attendant. She's been on-board for 53 years, since 1957, back when they were called hostesses, and required to be single and slender -- she even recalls being weighed-in by the airline.

Over the years, Norma has logged more than 63000 in-flight hours and traveled 26 million miles. She's also had perfect attendance and looks amazing at 74 years old. Not bad. Not bad at all.
