A brash, funny, and downright ballsy ode to the ups and downs of life in the air.
Diary of a Pissed-Off Flight Attendant is an eye opening, behind the scenes, indiscreet account based on almost two decades of aviation industry experience. Combining a unique blend of hilarious customer antics with the secrets behind the enviable lives of flight attendants and pilots, Diary of a Pissed-Off Flight Attendant provides an all-access pass for frequent flyers and novice travelers alike.
Growing up, author Sydney Pearl admired her Aunt Claire’s seemingly glamorous career. Then, Sydney became a flight attendant and found out it was a lot less glamorous and a lot more stressful than she’d thought it would be. Whether admitting to intentionally spilling drinks on passengers, or telling the story of how she unknowingly became “the help”, Sydney Pearl takes you on a gut-busting journey into what really happens above 10,000 feet.
“It’s about time!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Sylvia Londo
Sidney Pearl writes down what needs to be said (don’t wear flip flops on my flight), what needs to be shared (“coffee or tea?” “Yes please.”), and everything else that matters to her — and to me, too.
Het stories are recognizable, at times hilarious (like the title) and at other times dead serious. Always, however, written in a style that I should envy, where it not I respect Sydney too much.
Glad I’m Dutch though – thank God our pilots at, let’s say RDA, aren’t anything like the ones at Sun. At least I hope not, because I’m married to one.
Long story short: I strongly advise anyone either in the airline industry or close to it (flying twice a year is close enough) to buy and read this book!
