Cruising Attitude

Heather Poole


This was a fun, easy read about the trials and tribulations of being a flight attendant. My flying days are over, but I enjoyed reading this book about air travel through the eyes of a flight attendant. Mostly I wondered why anyone would want to be one. It looks very glamorous to the casual observer, but since most people exhibit their worst characteristics under conditions that are less than ideal, one quickly realizes that flight attendants come in for more than their share of abuse.

They have a dangerous, difficult job. We are fortunate that there are people willing to perform it. I’m glad I’m not one of them.
