    One thought on “Flying by the Seat of My Pants: Flight Attendant Adventures on a Wing and a Prayer

    1. Rossy

      Quick read, short chapters, not laugh out loud moments as it promised (I giggled at a couple of chapters), but kind of entertaining nonetheless.

    2. Colin

      It was a breezy little book I read in a day during jury duty. Several stories had a punchline that gave me a good laugh. But as a former Customer Service Agent/Supervisor for an airline, there wasn't much here surprising to me. I've seen many more funny, and disturbing, events during my days in the airport.This was written in a motivational book style of brief stories no more than 3 pages long. And Marsha really wears her spirituality on her shoulder. This book would definitely be a fun quick re [...]

    3. Melissa

      an interesting look into the life of a stewardess, but i hate people who think they are funny when they're not. on top of that flaw, this author sprinkles in way to many I love Jesus moments. attempts at humor and religion don't mix.

      Marsha sounds like a nice lady and I'm sure she was/is a stellar flight attendant. Her jokes fall a little flat in the writing, but I'm sure they're fine in the air.Overall a very quick, simple read (1/3 the text of Cruising Attitude, if even) with a quick overview of the same things the other books cover: the conflicting rigidity and chaos of airline flight attendant's lives, strange situations on an aircraft, obnoxious passengers and co-workers, a bit of life outside the airline, and turbulenc [...]

    5. Grace

      I'm embarrassed to say that I read this book. As a former flight attendant, I was so disappointed in the representation in the characterization. I did not identify with the overwrought emotions (even though I recognized the situations as common to that business). There are hilarious stories to tell of those days, but Marsha's stories feel a little dishonest and exaggerated. Her attempts at humor result in some poorly constructed punch-lines. Maybe a creative writing class would help?

    6. Kelly

      I got this book from my friend. It is a really qick and easy read. Because I am also aprt of this airline breed I was laughing so hard about the details and out of control things that happen truely only in the airline business. The main character reminded me of my friend Alisha (Flight attentant. If you need a good laugh, nothing depressing and fun book. This is it.

    7. Thomas Andrikus

      In some of the stories, the author Marks simply tries too hard to be funny. Nonetheless, they are all insightful in providing a glimpse on what it is like to be working as a flight attendant. This makes the rest of us, whose only contact with aeroplanes are merely limited in our roles as passengers, become more appreciative for what flight attendants do for us.

    8. Karen

      Very entertaining! I think the first part of the book was stronger than the end, but still a good read overall. Hmm, I have some of those benign tumors too (courtesy of my desk job). =) I thought for years that being a flight attendant would be a great job since I too love to travel. I took another path though.

    9. Jeanette Cupcake

      I wish I could give this negative stars. this was justinful. From the view of a person who likes to read, not as a flight attendant about this flowed. it was random stories, some about flying, some not, that just made no sense. she was all over the place. and she randomly inserts annoying religious crap that has nothing to do with the stories or being a flight attendant. Coming from a flight attendant, I had high hopes for this book. um it was boring, totally not cohesive, and I have no idea how [...]

    10. RYCJ

      The opening was just hilarious, and writing genuinely gorgeous. Favorites were "the tumors" and the "have you seen my mother?" The story on Hannah was sweet, and Erma Bombeck interesting. This small book of short stories actually is suited perfect for reading while traveling in flight to be more specific.

    11. Courtney Johnson

      It was very fitting that I read this book while I was on a flight. It didn't take long at all to read, and the chapters were very short. Basically, it is like one flight attendant telling stories about funny or weird things that happened to her. Sometimes I would be grossed out or laugh, but I don't think I would read it again.

    12. Catherine

      This was a really quick, light read reminiscent of Reader's Digest articles compiled into a book. The writer is very likable and I found her adventures as a flight attendant very enjoyable to read about.

    13. Neets

      A quick, light-hearted read which helped me while away a rainy Sunday afternoon. Marsha's stories were often very short, not always laugh-out-loud amusing, but they did make me chuckle occasionally.

    14. Jessica

      Short little chapters without a lot of laughsI would choose Elliott Hester's flight attendant tales over this one.
