Boomers and 50 Plus Taking to the Skies?

I travel a fair bit, so I'm used to hanging around in airports, waiting to change planes, flight delays, overpriced Starbucks...you get the picture.

Well, there is...literally...a change in the air. This morning as I was boarding my US Airways flight, I took a look around and realized that all...yes, ALL the airline gate attendants were....well...over 50. Proudly wearing their hair grey, smiling, providing excellent, polite and efficient customer service...there we were! 50 plussers as the main demographic.

So move over Walmart and Home Depot and say hello to your new supporters of all things 50 Plus...US Airways (America West.)

It's coming...can you feel it? Ageism will topple. I can guarantee it.
