Just as an FYI the oldest flight attendant I worked with was 86 (my day job is a flight attendant) He passed away about 6 months later. He used to take his wings off and nap in empty seats while working. Intresting guy he was a retired postal carrier and spend time in a Japanese internment camp durring World War Two.
Don was in his 70s when I worked with him, and he's likely in his 80s now, and last I checked, still working as a paramedic. He spent 30 years in the army, retiring as a colonel, and then decided to become a medic which he has done for 20+ years (not sure what he did during his 11 year retirement before he decided to go to paramedic school).
Saving this thread for when my co-workers, who could dang near be my grandkids, start giving me static about, 'be careful you don't want to break a hip" and other "old" jabs, I can point out that I have a way to go, before I can claim any age seniority. I'm 68 btw.
We've got a guy working F/T on a regular rotation that just turned 72 a few months back. He's been on the job since 1968. Started as an RN in the mid 60's but switched over to ambulance. He could have taken his full pension a long time ago, aged out of benefits and effectively makes less in take home then if he just retired. He's keeps pushing his retirement date back though and I don't believe he's going to retire unless circumstances force him to. I think he's got three bars on his Governor General's Exemplary Service Medal at this point.
