Flying the friendly skies, New York editorial photographer Brian Finke crisscrossed the United States photographing flight attendants on Delta, JetBlue, Hawaiian, Hooters Air, Southwest, and Song airlines before going abroad with such carriers as Air France, Qantas, and British Airways. In London, Finke visited a flight attendant school complete with emergency rafts and billowing smoke, and then, continuing east, he traveled on Air Asia, Thai, Tiger, ANA, Japan, and Cathay Pacific. The result of two years of travel is Flight Attendants, a collection of photographs documenting the lives of those adventurous souls who choose to work at 40,000 feet.
