You girls and guys bring me back thanks for the time and effort such a great fun job . Nice pod cast done professionally. Gives the passangers a good perspective
Fun, funny, and useful for travelers and travel pros
I love traveling, and I LOVE this behind-the-scenes look at flying from the flight attendant's standpoint. They talk about their pet peeves, how to make your flight attendant happy, and lots of the ins and outs of the airline industry and the flight attendant life. The podcast's hosts are so obviously having fun talking about their careers in the sky that the enjoyment is infectious. Combine that with a steady stream of interesting guests and e-mailed or tweeted questions and comments from other parts of the airline industry, including pilots and travelers, and you've got a winner.
Laugh out loud fun
Bobby and Sara are so much fun and I love the mix of interesting guests. I listen to all my podcasts at 2x speed so maybe that makes them seem more funny to me but I frequently find myself distracting other passengers when I am laughing out loud (I catch up on all my podcasts in airplanes when I travel for work). The content has always been fresh, interesting, and accessible - even to someone who doesn't work in the airline industry. I have learned a lot and been very entertained along the way. I do recommend this podcast frequently to others. Keep up the great work!
