Reviews - What do customers think about Flying by the Seat of My Pants: Flight Attendant Adventures on a Wing and a Prayer?
Basic collection of stories...good for one or two polite laughs Nov 6, 2008
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...but I would have expected 20 years of experiences to be more enlightening and interesting.
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.
That said..it's good for one or two laughs. Not guffaws...but polite laughs.
Far from "hilarious" Jul 7, 2008
I hate to criticize this collection of the author's experiences as a flight attendant because she seems like a genuinely nice woman, but seriously, this book is not that well written and is far from "hilarious" like most of the reviews state. An easy read? Sure, mostly because it's short. You can read it in one sitting, with little satisfaction other than having read a book in one sitting. There may be a few chuckles, but otherwise you'll find yourself saying "so what". I can tell more entertaining tales from my experiences as a passenger. "Laugh out loud" and "hilarious" do not describe this book at all. I have to agree that the other reviews must have been written by the author and her friends and family.

I am not alone Oct 15, 2007
I am a cabin crew member myself. I was reading this book while I was passengering (dead heading)and I was laughing so much I had to put it down before the passengers wondered what was going on. It's a great description of the way our life is. Well written and events were well documented. GET THIS BOOK.
