Letter from a pilot

This is NOT Dave. (Photo courtesy of Caribb)

I love this letter.  I really do.  Not just because it’s from someone who works in the airline industry – although these are always my favorite! – but because it’s from a man, who happens to be a pilot, who decided to give a book about flight attendants a shot, and liked it!  This after reading the chapter about pilots, chapter 13, I think: Dating Pilots (Why I want to say no when the answer is yes, yes, yes!)

Hi there. I saw you on TV about a month ago and thought “why should I buy her book of sensational, inaccurate airline information?” (I fly for one of the other big airlines) so I checked it out of the library and read it. I have only one thing to say – GREAT JOB! I loved it. Great writing, and totally accurate information. Now I plan to buy a few copies and give them to my friends. You know what that means, for a cheap pilot (I guess I wasted at least one word there) to spring for a book. I look forward to your next book. – Dave

PS:  Just in case you never heard the classic flight attendant / pilot joke – “Do you know what a pilot’s primary form of birth control is? Answer: their personality. “Do you know what their back up is?” Answer: their layover clothes.

Think this is what may have given Dave the wrong impression about my book...

Or maybe it was this…

  1. There’s the flip side to all of this … a little touchy: flight attendants having a bad day. It seems like in the year or two, every flight attendant on my favorite airline is having a bad day. Right up front: airline work is the hardest work I know, only very special people can do it, and even then, it’s hard. Can you describe FAs having a bad day … what that looks like … and what happens next??

      1. I’m the boss here and I say letter from a pilot, because it is a letter…with a video underneath.

    1. I think it’s more like, What happens in Vegas, doesn’t stay in Vegas. It ends up on the internet.
