About the Book

In the 1930s, air travel was considered glamorous and exciting. But in today’s world, lines have unfortunately become long, leg room has shrunk to unthinkable sizes, food choices have become less than desirable, and passengers have become unpredictable travelers who often conduct themselves in ways that would have made their grandmothers shudder in horror. In a candid collection of real-life air travel experiences, seasoned business traveler Gordon Page shares both humorous and cringey stories stories of his challenges traveling the world in seat 29B to appraise aircraft. From passengers who clipped their toenails, blacked out, and stripped naked during an overnight international flight, to a spiritual healer who confidently assisted with an in-flight medical emergency, to the flight attendants who patiently dealt with a variety of incidents and personalities, Page leads us through his diverse, often shocking experiences gathered from a million-plus miles of flying. Throughout his entertaining narrative, Page reminds all of us that attitude is the key to viewing travel as an adventure rather than an ordeal. “Gordon … has captured the pain of travel for business but also demonstrated a clear sense of humor about the process. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view from Seat 29B.” —Paul Hinton, pilot and aviation industry professional
