The Do’s and Don’ts of Flying! A Flight Attendant’s Guide to Airline Travel Secrets
Making vacation plans can seem like a dream come true, but that dream can turn into a nightmare when everything goes wrong at the airport and during a flight. Every day, more than 1.7 million people board a commercial airplane in the United States, and that number is only expected to rise.
A flight attendant with thousands of flights under her belt who’s been in the commercial aviation business for more than ten years has created a guide to help passengers navigate air travel with help from an unofficial poll of hundreds of her fellow flight attendants and experienced frequent flyers.
The Do’s and Don’ts of Flying! A Flight Attendant’s Guide to Airline Travel Secrets puts passengers at ease, providing information about essentials such as airport security, traveling light, what to wear on a plane, traveling with young children, and tips for getting to connecting flights. With help from this guidebook, passengers can get a better experience at 30,000 feet.
“Love it! Great for parents flying with small children.”
LaVerne Adekunle, frequent flyer
“A must-read for first-time flyers and business travelers.”
Crystal Royal, 20-year commercial airline flight attendant
