Publisher Description

A Fast Food Nation for the airline industry, Attention All Passengers is a shocking and important exposé revealing the real state of the “friendly skies” in which we fly. Award-winning Consumer Reports travel journalist William McGee, a former editor of the Consumer Reports Travel Letter, spent nearly seven years in airline flight operations management, and what he learned was less than uplifting. From TSA power grabs and an endemic lack of oversight to legislative battles and lobbying boondoggles to antiquated flight patterns and outsourced maintenance workers, the airlines and the Government are in cahoots, conspiring to turn a profit any way they can, no matter who has to pay the price. A provocative and hard-hitting call to action, Attention All Passengers will explode all our previous misconceptions about the airline industry.

Well written, filled with data (sometimes too much)

Great book. I am not an airline expert so I occasionally glazed over but a fascinating glazed over. But, on the whole, an absolutely fascinating read.

An excellent read

A very intriguing look into the life & times of the US airline industry. Although the book starts off pro-re-regulation & liberal, it fixes itself down the line to be more fair & balances... As much as one can be once presented the facts. Great work & I hope the author makes progress in DC.
