Interesting book liked the count down aspect of each chapter. Have read others of this kind. And to be honest found it over egged. If this is true the CAA should close them down. He seems to forget that people actually pay to fly not to be treated as comic relief for the crew.

I loved this book. As a frequent long distance flyer and an employee in the hotel business I felt I could relate to most of what went on the book.It also opened my eyes to many events that must occur whilst flying and how airline staff deal with them - things that I had not considered before. My husband is a terrible flyer and he also read this book and in a bizare way it assisted him overcome some of his previous fears and gave him a few new things to think about.This book made me laugh (and cry) and since reading it I have bought all of the others in the series and thoroughly enjoyed them too, especially Hotel Babylon. Even if you are not a big reader buy this book and give it a go as it is a great read!!!

I read 'Air Babylon' during a recent trip to NY, enduring a number of BA cabin crew telling me it was all pure fiction. It is a very interesting concept in revealing the trade secrets of a chosen industry and a difficult one to pull off - my only criticism is that the 'do you remember the time that..." anecdotes come a bit too thick and fast towards the end of the book and do not flow into the day's diary of events as smoothly as the earlier chapters set in the Airport. There is some real food for thought here (speaking of which, you may never eat an airline meal again after reading this). In summary 'Air Babylon' will really get you thinking about very aspect of the flying experience next time you pass through a UK Airport, which may not be a good thing for the more nervous flyers out there.

As an ex- hostie, I found the book not very true to life!! It makes the Airline Industry out to be sex crazed, drug taking idiots! That may be true for the minority, but In 10 years, I never came across anyone behaving as badly as in that book, and in 10 years, not one corpse! What a load of rubbish!!!!

silly but funny! Of course it's all ridiculously exaggerated and contrived. no single flight could possibly have dead bodies, air rage, and sex as well as all the other crazy things that happen. but the author is honest enough to admit it's all a compliation of stories from various people and it's very easy to read. I agree with a few earlier comments that it's odd that the main character is a man - not totally convinced by that - but it's a great book for a holiday and I'm glad I finally got around to reading it!
