Plane Insanity: A Flight Attendant’s Tales of Sex, Rage, and Queasiness at 30,000 Feet: Elliott Hester

With our busy schedules it’s tough to find time to read, but we really need to escape from all our thoughts and troubles. Plane Insanity will give you some comic relief and remind you that you’re not the only one who deals with a bunch of crap. Amassing at a whopping 236 pages, this is a quick read even for the slowest reader. Also, the chapters are short so if you can’t get away from the tube, you can read during the commercials.

First time author, Elliott Hester may have written the book of his career on the first try. Hester was a one-time airline ramp crewmember in Chicago when, one day in sub-zero temperatures everything changed with one little gesture. Hester decide he was going to be a flight attendant, but I’m not sure he knew what he was getting himself into. If you have ever been on a plane or waiting in line to check in for a flight, you’ve most likely seen, to some extent, some of things that Hester has dealt with throughout his career. Take those images and multiply them by one thousand and maybe you’ll be able to fathom his life. Tales of drunks, crazies, vomiters, sexual deviants, and whatever else you can think of, are part of Hester’s repertoire. But he doesn’t stop there. He gives us some of the behind the scenes stories as well. Ever wonder what the flight crews do during their layovers? Maybe on your last flight you were delayed, but for no apparent reason. What until you here some of the insane reasons why your plane didn’t get out on time. Ever heard of the Mile High Club? Of course you have. Read a little about passengers and crewmembers being inducted, coming close, and renewing their memberships. There’s also some information on what some airlines are doing to make it easier to join The Club.

What causes people to change their behavior once they’re airborne? I don’t think Elliott Hester even knows after all these years. It must be something in the air. So take a few minutes and enjoy the trip.
