Jet Vignettes is a departure from the genre of books telling crazy crew and passenger drama tales; instead, it is the personal stories of an international flight attendant traveling around the world for the last 23 years: the laughter, discoveries, experiences, grief, love, downright frightening moments, crew camaraderie and multiple adventures.
Flight attendants have the job that reaps the most rewards. Buying Japanese bottle openers and kimonos in Tokyo, having cocktails outside at the “barrel bar” in Rome late on a summer afternoon or, because it is winter, heading south to lie on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro - all in the same month - is what makes the job of a flight attendant so addictive, and enviable. When we arrive anywhere, our work is done and the day, or night, is ours to enjoy. And that we do - Jet Vignettes.
Highly recommend this book - a wonderful read
Just read Jet Vignettes. Wonderful description of a demanding job sometimes dealing with difficult people and emergency situations. The book does a great job of describing the upside of the position - working with other flight attendants, travel to interesting places, wonderful adventures etc. Couldn't put it down once I started and kept thinking "i have to read one more chapter". I highly recommend this book.
Thoroughly Engaging! This author did an incredible job of taking me along as she traveled the globe, with intriguing, insightful, stories that left me wanting more.....Simply could not put it down! A great read for anyone who enjoys adventure, travel and lifestyle.
respect her humor and her experience
I enjoyed reading Jet Vignettes for many reasons. I like how the author easily, politely commands respect for herself and her profession in funny, engaging, and clever ways.
I loved the honesty... about the money and how to travel with less. I was moved by one story in particularly how the author's work team rallied together to help one of their own with such care and respect.
Plus I love the little things like packing tips and I vow to never over pack again! And from now on, I will always smile and show the attendant my ticket! This book has made me a better airline passenger and traveler...
