Flying the not-so-friendly skies... In her more than fifteen years as an airline flight attendant, Heather Poole has seen it all. She's witnessed all manner of bad behavior at 35,000 feet and knows what it takes for a traveler to become the most hated passenger onboard. She's slept in flight attendant crashpads in "Crew Gardens," Queens—sharing small bedrooms crammed with bunk beds with a parade of attractive women who come and go at all hours, prompting suspicious neighbors to jump to the very worst conclusions. She's watched passengers and coworkers alike escorted off the planes by police. She can tell you why it's a bad idea to fall for a pilot but can be a very good one (in her case) to date a business-class passenger. Heather knows everything about flying in a post-9/11 world—and she knows what goes on behind the scenes, things the passengers would never dream. Heather's true stories in Cruising Attitude are surprising, hilarious, sometimes outrageously incredible—the very juiciest of "galley gossip" delightfully intermingled with the eye-opening, unforgettable chronicle of her fascinating life in the sky.

One of the greatest metaphors to relationships and all of their nuances is flying; the entire flight experience from start to finish. From the planning and packing stages to departing and eventually deplaning, air travel intimates and imitates life's greatest enigma; relationships. No better depiction of this conundrum than the Baggage Claim area, with its overcrowded carousels fraught with luggage and people of all colors, shapes, and sizes. It is here where the theme of this book resonates with efficacy; carefully and artfully interweaving the main passenger's plight within his flight. It is this nebulous journey that takes center stage within this book. Baggage Claim becomes more than a designated area within an airport. It becomes an emotional and psychological malaise that disrupts healthy and wholesome relationships, and threatens to leave the most important passenger stranded at the "arrival" terminal of life; a new and better YOU!
