Up-to-date info on airline stewardesses...er, flight attendants? (1 Viewer)

So for the next installment I'm plotting out right now, I'd like to put one of my angel characters into the human world as a flight attendant, presumably for British Airways...very free to move about. I think that I can make the angel side of her character believable, but what about the professional side? Where could I go for recent information about life, both personal and professional, in the airline industry? It's been a while since the day of the "Coffee, Tea, or Me?" gals! [Edit To Add: Which I now see were ghost-written and largely fictitious...why am I not surprised?]

For what it's worth this is being set in a kind of alternate reality, and COVID isn't part of it at all...so I'm looking mainly for pre-COVID material.

Came here to suggest Around the World in a Bad Mood (incidentally, one of the titles listed in Taylor's link).

I'm somewhat removed, having read it a couple of years back, but I recall thinking it was pretty good. My memory is hazy as to whether it goes into the post-9/11 era...the publish date would suggest not. No idea if that's of any relevance.
