Attitude at 35,000 Feet

AT THE ambitious age of six, I determined I wanted to be an air hostess as soon as I was old enough. They were glamorous, gorgeous, and got to see the world. By the time I was a worldly fourteen I had had enough of flying — this was reinforced by the turbulence we were going through passing insanely close to North Borneo’s Mount Kinabalu, where I had a death-grip of the gorgeous air hostess’s arm as the Fokker we were on dropped a couple of feet while forgetting to bring our stomachs along....


EVERY flight crew's nightmare is some passenger will get unruly at 35,000 feet; every passenger's nightmare is that the plane will hit turbulence and dinner will end up on someone's head.  Hope Barrett's journal of neuroses and aviophobia will speak to all travellers who have found themselves stranded, strapped in by turbulence, and stripping for security.  Wry, wrought, and wary, Attitude at 35,000 Feet will have you laughing, thinking, fastening your seatbelt, and maybe... ready to board that next flight.
