About the Author

Betty was born the youngest of ten children in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She knew from a young age that she wanted to travel and see the world. After graduating from Shippensburg University, she got a job as a flight attendant for a major airline and has been flying for over 20 years. Betty currently lives in Los Angeles, California and is still flying so you might see her on your next flight! In September 2006 she started her own podcast called Betty in the Sky with a Suitcase. Composed of airline and travels stories, the podcast is reminiscent of an old fashioned radio show, giving listeners an insiders view of life in the air.

I have listened to most of the Betty in the Sky with a Suitcase blogs, so we bought the book. The first day we got it from Amazon my 14 year old son took it to school and came home and told me the parts that made him laugh in class. (It was in a reading class, though the teacher told him to keep it down.) He was laughing so hard he could hardly tell me. He acted out three of the stories and had me laughing uncontrollably on the couch. I finally got to read it myself and I couldn't put it down. Most of the people at work stopped to see was making me laugh. I will keep it in my desk at work and pull it out any time I need to put a smile on my face! Great book!

I started reading this book in my office and before I knew it my co-workers were asking what on earth I was doing. I couldn't help myself...I was laughing out loud and started reading some of the stories to my friends. What started off as a quiet day turned into a laugh fest. Two of my co-workers immediately ordered the book online. I have had so much fun reading this! Thank you Betty for making us laugh...it's the best medicine.

I travel a lot so I decided to buy this book to keep me entertained on a long flight. And it did exactly that. It's very funny! The author has a terrific sense of humor, and a clever way of telling her stories. You'll be amazed at the crazy things people do when they fly. Definitely a fun read.

By far one of the funniest books I have ever read. Pure entertainment. I brought it to read on a plane, and caught myself laughing out loud. Two different flight attendants actually asked me what I was reading, and when I showed them the book, they took the name to purchase for themselves, even though they probably could have written some of the stories themselves. Absolutely hysterical.

This was a fairly entertaining and quick read… I finished it in the space of an evening…

Some of the things I've heard before such as the pilot and who walks the ladies seeing eye dog before getting on the plane. I can't think of a guide dog handler who hasn't heard that particular story…

I've handled guide dogs for 18 years and I don't think I would relinquish any of my dogs over to an airplane pilot or anybody else for that matter LOL although it would be kind of humorous to see how the rest of the people would act…

One of the best parts about the book where the little tidbit sections that gives you little nuggets of trivia/information… Also reading about people's various miss adventures in the lavatory was humorous… Hopefully there will be another book by this author… Also she just earned a new subscriber to her podcast

I have listened to Betty's podcast for a year and was excited to purchase her book. She has the best sense of humour and makes me laugh out loud again when I read these stories after having heard many of them in the podcast. I have a better appreciation for the interesting work of flight attendants. Thanks, Betty!

In my days I had always wanted to be a flight attendant but didn't follow my dreams. This book brings a whole new light on the career. It not all seriousness, it's fun too! I laugh at every story! A good read!

Have you ever wanted to slide down the aisle of the plane on a dinner tray or want to know what happens when you race toilet paper rolls on take off. Ever wonder why there are footprints on the toilet seat? These and many other questions are answered by Betty sharing her experiences flying all over the world the past few decades.

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.
