Read reviews that mention flight attendant seat of my pants flying by the seat marsha marks bought this book well written fun read enjoyed this book seems like flight attendants read this book easy read book so funny book to read hilarious laugh entertaining experiences laughing humor.
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I read this in one day and I found it really entertaining. I guess out of the flight related books I wanted one that is non fiction and so I could get a laugh out of the funny moments. God knows how funny it can be when you're on a plane. I hope I can get the opinion of Bob one of my flight attendant friends on this one. The part where her little girl falls into the pool at a hotel and her dad has to get her out asap is also very funny.
In the chapter 30 about sleeping in a closet on a plane I actually felt sorry it sounded like a really small closet but I guess not as small as the lavatory. All planes have small lavatories.
Flying by the Seat of My Pants: Flight Attendant Adventures on a Wing and a Prayer by Marsha Marks
Getting onto the plane with an attendant dressed in grunge is a story good for a laugh I couldn't understand the grunge phase either back when it was popular and hoped against hope it would fade away. This makes a job of flight attendant sound quick paced and funny which it is and can be a great way to learn about life and really being of assistance to the customers who just want to get where they are going. I hope I can hang onto this one it's very funny and I love it. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Opening was so hilarious, and writing so genuinely gorgeous that perhaps it's what fueled my expectations.
The stories taper off from there, offering a pearl here and there, such as the sweet treat reading the story on Hannah. All in all the stories are short and quick reads, light on the heart and spirit, so perfectly suited for reading while traveling And so did I, when I sneaked a read before wrapping and beribboning it. Marks recounts her flying career from her first moments in training school to full-fledged attendanthood, with a light and humorous touch that nevertheless addresses some of the serious, and quirky, dilemmas that these undersung laborers of the skies confront.
One person found this helpful. I wasn't expecting high hilarity but a chuckle here or there would have been nice.

The stories were mundane and routine and not even mildly amusing. Although the author seems to think she is quite the comedian. Having spent many years "in the air" I know there are a lot of interesting and downright funny stories to be had when you work with the flying public. Those stories are lacking here. There are a lot of other very entertaining books to choose from if you are looking for humor in the sky.
I bought this book because I love flying and like to know how things work on the 'inside'. This was not the book for me. Marsha is a down to earth, nice person and that is exactly what comes across in the book. It's not flashy, thrilling or mystery-busting. Doesn't give too much info on how airlines, or flight attendant's work. Maybe there really isn't much going on in that world This seems to be the tail-end of a collection of stories where the meat may already have been published in Ms Marks' first two books. My late husband was a captain for Southwest Airlines.
Yes I was LOL about everything. I now follow the author on FB. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I bought this along with 6 other aviation-related books on a long vacation. I devoured it in about 30 minutes and felt like instead of turning pages, I should be scrolling down. Excellent stories -- but clearly lifted straight from her blog and onto the printed page. I would return it for a refund if I could.
