Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Make sure your seatbacks and tray tables are in their full upright and locked position for these shocking, bizarre, hilarious, and outrageous stories of airplane travel.

You're belted into a middle seat with burly businessmen on either side. It's ninety-two degrees in the cabin and someone forgot to use deodorant. A baby screams. A kid kicks the back of your seat. After two hours you haven't even left the taxiway. Welcome to modern airline travel! In Plane Insanity, Elliott Hester delivers stories that could only come from someone who "rides tin" for a living — a flight attendant.

You'll hear about:

  • the passenger from hell
  • a smuggled python
  • prostitutes working the lavatories
  • a riot in coachclass
  • a $500,000 heist
  • the anatomy of a carry-on bag
  • a malodorous couple
  • the Mile-High Club
  • and much more!
Fasten your seatbelts. After Plane Insanity, you'll never think of air travel the same way again.

Review:

"Hester...provides a wide assortment of various other true-life airline shenanigans taken from newspapers and wire service reports, which adds to his book's lurid charm." Publishers Weekly
