How Much does a Flight Attendant Make?

How much does a flight attendant make varies, but does not amount to very much. In the heyday of flight, the 1960s through the 19701s, flight attendants (then known as stewardesses) could expect to be paid an adequate wage. However, in recent decades, cutbacks have drastically reduced the wages of both pilots and flight attendants to, at times, at or below the poverty level.
