Overview

The Plane Truth by an American Airlines Flight Attendant is a daunting and insightful account of the perils that exist from the Commercial Airline aircrafts that are flying in our skies. What you don't know when you fly could kill you!

"As I write these words, I can only pray that they reach every American Airlines flight attendant as well as all other commercial airline flight attendants. May you quickly wake up and realize the importance of your presence on board every aircraft we take up to the skies, because we are running out of time. Allow no one to intimidate or harass you into making compromising decisions that could allow for another catastrophic scenario at 39,000 feet needlessly costing not only your lives, but the lives of the passengers we transport on a daily basis from one destination to another. Please God, please let us not continue the complacency I begin to once again see on our aircrafts. Help us to keep strong and vigilant and remind us that we are "The Last Line of Defense" up there."

    CAPTAIN OF THE CABIN

    Posted May 15, 2009, 4:59 PM EST: This book is riveting, and here's why. Chapter 1 and Chapter 10 are worth the price of this great book. Chapter 1 relates the heroic efforts of Flight Attendant Amy Sweeney. She had the guts to cell phone her superiors at American Airlines, relating the actions of the murderous hijackers on board. She left the people on the ground informed about the savages in command. "Everything from the disruption of the attackers to the seat numbers they occupied, to the number of attackers on board and the weapons they used to take over the aircraft." She knew she was about to die, yet she had the courage to give a running account of the passengers and crew. Amy was killed as her aircraft slammed into the World Trade tower. Her final words were to her children: "Your mummy is never coming home again." If you read this chapter without having a lump in your throat, you are a better person than I. Chapter 10 is all about American's Golden Heart Awards Ceremony, honoring the flight attendants who used a defibrillator to save lives. It was April 2, 2008. American Airlines' big wigs and the media were all present for this auspicious occasion. Plucky Alicia had the spunk to say the following: "Did you ever consider using the bonus money 'you' and your 'tip fares' corporate executive buddies are paying yourselves, which adds up to the sum of $17,183,270.00 with $7,695,42.800 of that total going directly to line your own personal pockets? It would have been better served to take care of the problems of our aging aircraft are facing. It's not like any of you really earned these bonuses you took off the backs of your lower food-chain employees anyway. That extra cash and all the other extra cash was supposed to be put back into our airline to help save the company after September 11." All the airline workers have had LARGE cuts in their salaries. It is a crime to take money from the people who keep the airline running. There are only a few groups of employees who are needed to run an airline: pilots, mechanics, flight attendants, and air traffic controllers. All the big wigs who run the airlines into the ground with their greedy bonuses are not needed." My name is Brian Power-Waters, and I have been a USAirways captain for 28 years and have written five books on aviation. I greatly admire Alicia Lutz Rolow for having more guts than most of the pilots I know. She has written a great book that I hope you will read.
