Packed with funny, moving, and shocking stories of life as a flight attendant, Fly Girl captures the nostalgia and magic of air travel at its height, and the thrill that remains with every takeoff.
Ann Hood’s memoir of her experiences as a flight attendant is a love letter to the years when flying was a dream — and the 747s ruled the skies.
Growing up in a small New England town, Hood had two ambitions: To see the world and become a writer. Neither was easy, but her passion and determination drove her to reach and then exceed both of her childhood dreams.
“The author did a great job conveying how being a flight attendant changed her, helping her gain confidence in herself,” said a review on goodreads.com.
“It was also interesting to learn the nitty-gritty details of being a flight attendant, ranging from what training they received to how they bid on routes to decide which flights they would end up flying.”
Hood has written several best-selling novels, but this is nonfiction about her experience as a Trans World Airline flight attendant.
