Great Travel Reads – Cruising Attitude

April 11th, 2012

Heather Poole Cruising Altitude

Think life at 35 000 feet is always smooth sailing? Think again! In Cruising Attitude, veteran flight attendant Heather Poole proves there’s always a little turbulence as she shares her insider perspective of flying the not-so-friendly-skies.

With fifteen years of unruly passengers and the day-to-day miasma of the airline service industry, Poole’s memoir is a hilarious, often incredible account of outrageous demands, crew drama, overcrowded crashpads in “Crew Gardens” Queens, and the joys and perils of mile-high dating. After reading Poole’s book you might think twice the next time you are about to hit the call button to ask for an extra blanket!
