"Choose the job you love and you will never work a day in your life," goes a well-known proverb. And indeed, this is true: those who turn their passion into their profession rarely claim to be tired of working and never want to retire.

A great example is Bette Nash, an 86-year-old flight hostess who is still on duty and has flown regularly for over half a century. The woman was even listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, as she - thanks to her 65-year career - as the longest-serving flight attendant in the world.

Ms. Bette began her career on November 4, 1957, when she served her first day of service for Eastern Air Lines. This was a very important moment for the woman who, since that date, she has spent more time in the air than on land. After several moves from one company to another, Bette settled down as an employee for American Airlines.

The Guinness Book of World Records jury recognized her as the woman with the longest career as a flight attendant ever, with 64 years, 61 days of uninterrupted service at the time of the verification. As mentioned, Bette is still active as a flight hostess for American Airlines. The woman spent most of her career working on the New York-Boston-Washington route, which allowed her to return home in the evenings to look after her child.

Bette explained that flight attendants had to meet several requirements early in her career. "You had to be of a certain height and weight. It used to be difficult. If you put on a few pounds, you had to fix it right away," she recalled.

Nearly 65 years later, a lot has changed in her industry, but her career has continued. Bette still attends training courses for flight attendants required by the Federal Aviation Administration and continues to welcome passengers on board.

A true example of tenacity and willpower that, we hope, will continue for a long time to come.
