The Air Traveler's Survival Guide: The Plane Truth from 35,000 Feet
From the Book Jacket:
Air travel may be crazy on the ground for passengers, but what's it really like at 35,000 feet for the cabin crew? How safe, for example, are you when you fly? Is airport security as good as they claim? Why are you more susceptible to the effects of alcoholic beverages at 35,000 feet? How common is the "Mile High Club"? Do the South Americans and Scandinavians behave differently in the air?
A very Frank Steward answers these questions and countless more in The Air Traveler's Survival Guide, exposing all the warts and blemishes of air travel. You encounter a kaleidoscope of personalities and experiences, including an "enterprising stowaway rat, a woman who discarded all of her clothes, a passenger with a one-way ticket to death, a widow with her husband's ashes, a child who cuts the hair of a sleeping passenger, crew members' fertility problems, itchy and riotous layovers, and mass food poisoning 90 minutes from the nearest airport!
Tucked among the 68 stories in The Air Traveler's Survival Guide is a trunkload of tips and advice on how to make the best of air travel, including:
What to put in your carry-on bag
How to upgrade your seat
How to fly standby and save bundles of money
How to decipher what crew members say
How to minimize the effects of jet lag
* How to select a hotel room in which you can sleep
Appropriately dedicated to "the people who smile and thank you for your trash," this eye-opening book puts a whole new face on the travel industry. You will laugh and cry and at times grimace, but you'll also discover a rich tapestry of people who populate those crammed seats, crowded aisles, and tiny restrooms. While a lot may go wrong with air travel on the ground and in the air, when you travel with A. Frank Steward, you'll see through the eyes of the cabin crew what air travel is all about - transporting interesting, and often very demanding, strangers from one destination to another.
