More About the Author
children. She knew from a young age that she just had to break out of
the traditional rut and go see the world.
After graduating from Shippensburg University she got a job as a flight attendant for People Express airlines and then moved on to a major airline.
Betty has had exciting travel experiences all over the globe, camping in the Sahara, meeting orangutans, and hiking the Himalayas.
In 2005, she started a podcast called "Betty In the Sky With a Suitcase", (found at www.bettyinthesky.com) in which she shared the weird, wonderful, and
wacky things that happen on a plane at 35,000 feet. The podcast is reminiscent of an old fashioned radio show, giving listeners an insider's view of life in the air.
Betty currently lives in Los Angeles, California and is still flying--so you might see her on your next flight!

If you have not been reading this sort of humour you may be able to take these jokes at face value. I got a bad taste in my mouth after the third purported "story from a pilot" that I had read in joke books or on the internet in the mid 1990s. Personally I feel a bit misled as from the title and description I had expected mostly personal accounts and anecdotes.
You will enjoy this book and it is good for a laugh if you're not over familiar with this sort of comedy material. The reviewer who's teenage son enjoyed it is spot on, I recommend this book to this age range. If you're heading on a long plane journey and need something light, this is safe if you're afraid of flying as there is no mention of plane crashes or malfunctions.
The book is not bad per se, I think it should be more accurately described.
As a moderate traveler I needed a break from the technical reading I fill most of my time reading. Betty in the Sky is a great escape from the seriousness of my day to day life. Even if you don't travel this is a good, cheap read you should download and spend the afternoon reading. I laiughed my head off on several flights reading the book and sharing the stories with flight attendants. It will make you feel more like a mile high champion knowing what really goes on when you are not looking during your flight or waiting in the terminal.

Lots of short anecdotes, not really what I would call a "book" per se. There were some interesting facts and trivia, but it did seem mostly like short jokes or gripes. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Bzsue (Crystal Lake, IL)
