Review quote

"Bitchy, bolshy and fun" Refresh "Lifts the lid on the airline industry, the scams, the hedonistic lifestyle of the staff and the treatment of the passengers" Bath Chronicle "A shocking but fantastic book that should be read before you go on holiday!" Star Magazine "For real life debauchery, the perfect in-flight read (or maybe not...) has to be Air Babylon" What's On "Lifts the lid on what cabin-crews really get up to in the galley" Esquire
