If, however, you understand that airlines now exist mostly for employing accounting rather than flying, this is the book for you. It's an insiders view of the evolution of the airlines. Mostly anecdotal but with humor thrown in. Somethings require pilot experience to quickly understand, but an enjoyable read for anyone. Under lying story is there is consequence for every action, "cheaper fares" result in lost amenities and convenience.
If fully factual it doesn't paint the airline industry as an ideal employer. Another result of globalization? I very much enjoyed this Kindle book. It is well written and contains countless recollections from the long career of a seasoned airline captain. The author's metaphors and creative humor are a delight for all to read not just aviation enthusiasts.
This was interesting and entertaining for about an hour, but then became more of the same. I suppose if I was really interested in commercial aviation I would have kept reading, but after about a third, I switched to something more action-oriented This isn't a deep read, but it is interesting with some thought-provoking comments written in a light-hearted manner. I learned some things about the airline industry that I didn't know even though I have been a customer for over 35 years.

Supremely funny compilation of stories that likely only pilots will truly understand. Nuanced just right, this book had me in stitches throughout! Kevin's writing is always insightful and humorous. Can't wait to read this book! I am a pilot, and honestly, I did not dig this book very much. A few catchy one liners that were somewhat funny is about all it had to offer.

Free flight time, free fuel, free cigarettes, few cares, and fewer cynics. CEO of the Cockpit 7: Grumpy Old Captains - Articles - Jun 9 It's been a bad day. Scratch that, it's been a bad week. AVweb's Kevin Garrison has had it up to his epaulets with cute comments from airline passengers, and he's decided it's time to let us know what passengers say that makes airline pilots rant.
CEO of the Cockpit 6: The Dow is rebounding and tech stocks are on the rise, but the major air carriers' shares are in the doldrums. Who's really at the controls here? Ahhhh, it's tax time for all of us and for the CEO of the Cockpit as well.
