Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hilarious slant on the culture of airline travel — by a flight attendant who's logged more in-flight hours than Federal Express. Around the World in a Bad Mood is a center seat on an oversold flight to laughter. And there's no one better qualified than flight attendant Rene Foss to pilot readers through this absurd world. We've all experienced it: the flight to Pittsburgh that ended up in Topeka, the flight that couldn't land because of weather delays in Chicago, and the cross-country flight with six screaming babies, twelve toddlers, and three drunks in coach. Based on Rene Foss's musical revue of the same name which Tom Brokaw called "A first-class ticket to laughs," this hilarious book confronts every aspect of a flight attendant's absurd world — from the endless array of passenger demands, to the secret language of flight attendants, and a unique version of the "Safety Demo Shuffle." Fasten your seatbelt and prepare yourself for a side-splitting perspective on the trials and tribulations of air travel.

Synopsis:

A humorous take on the airline industry written by a flight attendent take readers inside the world of screaming babies, drunken passengers, and excrutiating delays she encountered every day on the job.
