Wird aber auch nach der Leseprobe nicht wirklich anders. Mehr oder weniger lustige, erschreckende und manchmal erstaunliche Geschichten über Menschen in Flugzeugen. Nach einer Weile ist mir der Schreibstil auf die Nerven gegangen. Die Autorin hat Erfolg, aber ich werde ziemlich sicher kein anderes Buch von ihr lesen.
as a former stewardess, reading this this book gave me such a pleasure. It is written with wit, no self sorrow and describes situations that we probably have experienced as well. It is an eye opener for passengers and maybe this will help to have a bit more understanding about those working for us above the clouds. What does it cost to look somebody in the eye when served something. Who would imagine the hardship that these young idealistic people face, if they are based in such expensive cities as NYC or other big cities. Heather Poole always maintains a distance, never even mentions the company she worked (or maybe still works for) and if she mentions particular people it is still with dignity. It also made me realize how well off we were at the time. Working for a non U.S.A. International carrier, we did not have any of the hardship, like a sleeping pad, she describes and I can only say Bravo. If taken with the right attitude, indeed it is a wonderful profession and still bears many opportunities to widen your horizon.
The book was lightly amusing and an insight to life on board, but the emphasis was on the Problems and inconveniences of the on-board personnel rather than on the passengers and plane. Her complaints just aren't that interesting.
