An intriguing, uncensored, inside view of the not-so-friendly skies through the eyes of former flight attendant, Margo Anderson. If you are a frequent flier, or if you plan to fly in the near future, fasten your seat belt for a turbulent read! After five years of flying with a commuter airline based at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Anderson draws on her personal experiences and conversations, painting a portrayal of life as a flight attendant--grueling twelve hour days, complaining and unfriendly passengers, and unexpected, almost unbelievable situations, especially in the days and weeks following 9/11. Anderson navigates the complex world of flight crews with clarity, insight, wittiness, and her own special brand of humor. Readers are given a view of flying they may never have seen before, through the lens of the workhorse of the airline industry, regarded by many as the "puddle-jumpers," the commuter airlines.

The stories in Here, There and Everywhere are mainly from my exhausting, happy, frustrating, turbulent days after I became an air hostess with Ansett Airlines of South Australia. As well as portraying travel as it was in the 1970s and 1980s, they revisit attitudes in society, fashions and music when the world was more peaceful and travel was simpler and more pleasant as a result. 'Fasten your seat belts and prepare for take-off! Let flight attendant Lindsey Jane Doley take you to the back of the plane to sit with young hostesses and be privy to their secrets and adventures. A keen observer, with an eye for detail, Doley reminisces about her life on the airways in the 1970s and 80s, when free travel opened up the world for her. In-page entertainment includes quirky anecdotes, strange and sleazy passengers, foreign cities and romance. A born storyteller, Doley will have you on the edge of your seat, not knowing where the next chapter will land. Here, There and Everywhere is an entertaining and colloquial part of Australia's airline history.' - Jude Aquilina, poet and author 'A perfect peek behind the scenes at what life was really like as an air hostess in the bygone era of the 1970s and 80s. Poignant in places, laugh-out-loud funny in others, this book is a definite must-read.' - David Blake, London author

"A well-written and thorough treatment of the occupational demands and biography of the flight attendant. Working the Skies describes both how the work shapes the personal lives of those in the profession, as well as how work can be 'chosen' in an effort to craft a particular kind of life. The book also illustrates how the process of globalization has moved the profession 'backwards' in terms of working conditions and compensation-challenges faced by workers in numerous other professions."--Veronica Jaris Tichenor, author of Earning More And Getting Less: Why Successful Wives Can't Buy EqualityGet ready for takeoff. The life of the flight attendant, a.k.a., stewardess, was supposedly once one of glamour, exotic travel and sexual freedom, as recently depicted in such films as Catch Me If You Can and View From the Top. The nostalgia for the beautiful, carefree and ever helpful stewardess perhaps reveals a yearning for simpler times, but nonetheless does not square with the difficult, demanding and sometimes dangerous job of today's flight attendants. Based on interviews with over sixty flight attendants, both female and male labor leaders, and and drawing upon his observations while flying across the country and overseas, Drew Whitelegg reveals a much more complicated profession, one that in many ways is the quintessential job of the modern age where life moves at record speeds and all that is solid seems up in the air.Containing lively portraits of flight attendants, both current and retired, this book is the first to show the intimate, illuminating, funny, and sometimes dangerous behind-the-scenes stories of daily life for the flight attendant. Going behind the curtain, Whiteleggventures into first-class, coach, the cabin, and life on call for these men and women who spend week in and

When veteran flight attendant Steven Slater told off his startled passengers and slid down the emergency escape slide of a JetBlue airplane on a sunny summer's day at New York's Kennedy Airport in 2010, he said goodbye to the world as he knew it. Overnight, Slater became a media sensation and working class hero. Now, for the first time, Slater writes in his own words about what really happened that fateful day at JFK and shares his experiences of the surreal whirlwind that is overnight celebrity. But behind the splashy headlines, Slater fought battles no one knew anything about. In Wingwalking, Slater shares his lifelong journey through bipolar disorder, suicidal idealization, and a powerful addiction that brought him to his knees. In Wingwalking, Slater recounts treasured memories of a privileged childhood as the son of an airline pilot and the gift of exotic travel his intrepid parents bestowed upon him growing up. He invites the reader into his younger years and arduous and painstaking process of self discovery as a gay man stifled by a small town and his great escape to the big city and a career as a flight attendant that spanned the globe with some of the world’s leading airlines. Sidelined by trauma and harrowing PTSD, Slater sought refuge in drugs and alcohol and found himself homeless on the streets of Los Angeles’ Skid Row, lost in virtual obscurity and hopelessness. Slater fell into an underworld of danger and violence, barely escaping with his life. He lost his mind and was locked away from society in a succession of hospitals and psych wards. Yet, Slater is a born survivor, and fought valiantly for his safety and his sanity, prevailing over both his abusers and a mental health system that rendered him voiceless and powerless. At times hilarious and sometimes heart-wrenching, Wingwalking introduces the reader to the man behind the myth. Slater writes with startling candor and brilliant authenticity about what many face, but few speak of. Ultimately, Wingwalking is a story of resilience and transcendence and offers the reader hope and encouragement. Slater’s story is a true testament to the human spirit.

You've booked your flight and arrived at the airport, ready for your trip. Just imagine arriving minutes before your flight and being able to board the plane, walking to your gate without going through TSA, lighting up a cigarette on board, and eating a free meal-in coach. Sound crazy? Not if you traveled during the 1960s and early 1970s, when Janet Angell was a flight attendant. Jump Seat is Angell's candid memoir about a time when plane travel was still a luxury for most and flight attendants were called stewardesses. Angell grew up on a farm in Minnesota and always dreamt of seeing the world. After college she hoped to travel for a year before settling down to teach. Her ticket to being able to afford that was to work for an airline. Instead she worked as a stewardess for Northwest Orient Airlines for almost thirteen years. While Angell recounts some of Northwest's restrictive policies, she mostly recalls that period as one of the best times of her life. Her take on it is quite different than Coffee, Tea or Me? portrayed. She was able to travel the world both on and off the job. She met famous travelers like Jimmy Hoffa (a regular), Bobby Kennedy, and Diana Ross...all in a day's work. Board Jump Seat, buckle your seat belt, sit back, and relax with this entertaining read-and return to a time when flying was fun.

Secrets of a Metaphysical Flight Attendant is a spiritual memoir that explores the symbiotic relationship between thought and reality and proves that we really do have the power to create our lives. With lighthearted wit, piercing clarity, and unapologetic insight, Rebecca Tripp delivers her tale of a life lived in motion. In 1967, Rebecca left her sleepy seaside hometown to navigate a new life at 35,000 feet as a “sky goddess” with United Airlines. With barely a flicker of her false eyelashes, she was plunged into a rapidly shifting world of glamour gods and Playboy bunnies, first-class fliers and spiritual seekers. As a fun-loving “stew,” Rebecca literally had the world at her feet. Yet, something was missing. Life was coming at her—not the other way around. How could she take back the controls and create the life she really wanted? Over the next thirty-five years, through many adventures both enlightening and traumatic, Rebecca transformed herself from doe-eyed innocent to mature, powerful manifestress. Tapping the power of the spiritual realm, she overcame fear, doubt, toxic relationships, rape, and even cancer—simply by shifting her thought. Her experiences, shared with the wisdom of a lifetime, demonstrate that we all have the power to heal our minds and bodies and create our lives according to our greatest desires.
