JOHN BERGER / JBERGER@STARADVERTISER.COM ‘HOSTESSES’ RECALL OLD HAWAIIAN DAYS
Ruth Lung, left, Patsy Hicks, Elsie Palafox, Libby Antone and Ivanelle Choy reminisced about flying for Hawaiian Airlines in the 1950s — when they were known as “hostesses” and the standard passenger plane was the 1930s-vintage DC-3 — as several generations of former Hawaiian Airlines crew members celebrated the carrier’s 85th anniversary Saturday at the Ala Moana Hotel. For more on the party, see Ben Wood’s next “Wood Craft” column Sunday.
