This book was just so-so. Starting out at the now defunct charter airline Sun Jet after college, Poole never considered being a flight attendant as a career option.

They can also have a few family members or friends fly for free. Although there are hook-ups, the writer is quick to assure us that regulations, fear of stalkers, and just plain being tired are deterrents to such frequent frolics.

I raced through the book, and it gave me a new appreciation for flight attendants. The year my mother spent dying I was flying back to the UK for a 3-week on stint and then back here for 3 weeks.

On my flight last night I was reading the part about it being announced that two members crising the flight crew were a mother daughter in flight service team and my jaw dropped. Her application was accepted and she was in, well some what.

I just wish there were more like her. Today, they last either a few months or an entire lifetime; there seems to be no middle ground. I Never Wanted to be a Flight Attendant.

Just like the man sitting in 22B. I had to scrap this book. She seems like a very sweet flight attendant.
