I've never read a more accurate portrail of a flight attendant! The book was so much FUN... I felt like I was living the experiences myself!

Loved these stories from the actual experiences of a flight attendant. Travel is stressful enough today, it helps to know what else is happening out there on other planes might be just as bad as what you are experiencing.

This was so awful, I couldn't get but half-way through. This guy's just a mean and condecending jerk that makes fun of everyone's looks, nationality, accent and everything else. Maybe he'd have had better expeirences if he wasn't so mean and nasty inside.

Really funny and enjoyable. I experienced multiple laugh out loud moments when I read this book... and I learned some interesting new insights about how flight attendants do their jobs.

Anyone who has ever flown the friendly skies will appreciate Elliott Hester's wit and wisdom. He tells true stories of how flight attendants are frequently treated like sub-humans by passengers, and how many people seem to lose all sense of tact and personal dignity once their boarding pass is taken. Not to mention carry-on's the size of Texas, drunks, brawls and other human failings. Reading Mr. Hester's flight attendant perspective confirmed that they deal with a LOT, they're in a thankless position, and they're never appreciated until some heavy turbulence hits.

HIGHLY recommended, whether you're a frequent traveler or not - the humor is universal.

A view from the other side of the airplane seat. A quick, easy read about the many different faces of airplane travel.

"Plane Insaity" is a fun, easy read that has some laugh-out-loud moments. Ever wonder what it's like to be a flight attendant? It's everything you imagined, but a whole lot more. Get the inside scoop on memorable passengers (usually for all the wrong reasons), airline pilots, what really happens during layovers, the Mile-High Club, and much more. Elliott Hester's writing style is fluid and flawless, loaded with wit and just enough sarcasm to make me an instant fan.

An okay tell-all type book that did not contain many revelations for those who fly or read the newspaper.

okay - not as insightful as I would have thought. Some of the news articles were the same details in the narrative. Not as good as Kitchen Confidential or Waiter Rant.

This was a cute book. At times it was laugh out loud funny. Hard to believe that passengers on a plane could be so outragous. I liked this book because it was a light read. One to take to bed and read and really enjoy it. If you like this genre you will enjoy this book.
