Terry Ravenscroft.

Letters from the world's most troublesome (some would say troubled!) passenger. Dear Air 2000 is a hilarious collection of correspondence to and from forty different airline companies. From a former TV scriptwriter who previously tickled your ribs with sketches on The Les Dawson Show, The Two Ronnies, Not the Nine-O-Clock News, Morecambe and Wise and many more shows. After reading this book it is doubtful if you will ever risk eating an airline lasagne ever again. Maybe you will never risk travelling by air again.

This book is published in paperback under the title Air Mail.

More About the Author

The day after Terry Ravenscroft threw in his mundane factory job to become a television comedy scriptwriter he was involved in a car accident which left him unable to turn his head. Since then he has never looked back.
Before they took him away he wrote scripts for Les Dawson, The Two Ronnies, Morecambe and Wise, Alas Smith and Jones, Not the Nine O'Clock News, Ken Dodd, Roy Hudd, and several others. He also wrote the award-winning BBC radio series Star Terk Two. He now writes humorous books, fifteen thus far with no signs of letting up.
Born in New Mills, Derbyshire, in 1938, he still lives there with his wife Delma and his mistress Divine Bottom (in his dreams).

1.0 out of 5 stars Embarrassingly Humourless 17 Oct 2011
By Claire
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this shortly after the purchase of my new kindle due to the then all 5 star reviews. I'm pleased to see it has received several 1 star reviews in the last few months.
Absolutely not funny, at all.
Many seem to have enjoyed this going on their holidays, I wonder where they were headed. I never want to go there.

i thought that it may be a worthy successor to the Henry Root Letters but this book is just jejeune and puerile. A total waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bordering on idiotic 19 Dec 2011
By djbp
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Based on the price and all the positive reviews, I bought this and a couple of other titles for my Kindle. What a waste of time! If I could, I would seek a refund. Bearing in mind that this is a fictional character writing to real companies, it turns out to be a list of insulting lies. A real disappointment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dear Air 2000 25 Sep 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this for my Kindle to dip in to during those shorter moments on holiday when you just want something to fill some time and provide a little light entertainment along the way. The first couple of letters were mildly amusing but I soon found myself asking the point. This is not indicative of having lost my sense of humour.I did read the whole book to give it a fair chance but found myself feeling that many of the letters were simply rude.Some of the 'targets' did get the joke and play along-hence I did not give it one star.For those seeking a read that does not require too much thought in those brief moments , there are a number of blog type compilations that are much better than this book. The idea was OK but the execution seems mainly to have served the amusement of the author. Funny in parts but sadly too few.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flogging the Thread for all it's Worth 9 Oct 2011
By jeremy
Format:Kindle Edition
Oh Dear. More of the same. Take an implausible position, write to an airline for assistance then mock their genuine attempts to help. Plug away with follow up letters in a vain (it is a form of authour vanity) attempt to find a joke. Pull out the odd comedy medical problem and employ a bit of gentle racism (sort of: Ainsley - why he isn't like the rest of them) especially towards Malaysians and the Chinese (you could pass for white). I am only 60% of the way through and I am struggling. Still I don'tblame teh author, I blame the scapegoats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely hilarious! 20 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
First book I downloaded to my kindle! Funniest thing I've ever read. Constantly laughing out load and attracting odd looks from everyone around me. I find it amazing that so many airlines took the letters seriously. You won't regret buying this!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very funny 6 Oct 2011
By Helen
Format:Kindle Edition
This book wasn't as funny as I expected from the reviews. It consists of a series of rather stupid letters written by the author to the large airlines. He makes a series of outlandish complaints and demands (eg asking for his inflight meal to consist of stir fried mulberry leaves, claiming to weigh 46 stone, asking for a stewardess uniform for his wife). The airlines reply politely and helpfully, until they realise they are being set up and stop responding. Don't waste your time reading this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Samey
Follow up to Dear Coca-Cola continues in the same vein. This is a very funny book, but maybe I read it too soon after the first book as I found it very repetitive after a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars I cried.
All I can say is, people who didn't like this book had no sense of the ridiculous, of pomposity punctured. It's a classic. I recommend it to everyone. Read more
