Too Close: A Flight Attendant’s Thoughts On The Ft Lauderdale Airport Shooting

Please note: I was not there during the time of the incident, so these are simply my distant reactions.

Best Outfits For Travel

Since I am a flight attendant, and also obsessed with clothes, I decided to dedicate this post on being stylish, yet comfortable while traveling.  While I am working, I obviously don’t have a choice on what I wear, but if I did, I would not be wearing a high waist polyester skirt and heels.  It […]

Air Travel- “Regular” Passenger Style

I felt out of place.  Waiting in line, in regular clothes, in this location, seemed unnatural.  I purposely left my fancy juice concoctions unpacked.  I emptied my bottled of VOSS water pre-security, and watched as CREW cut in front of me in line.  I pulled my laptop out of my bag, put ballerina flats flat on […]

“Excuse me, Ma’am? Have You Forgot Your Brain?”

Beep, Beeeep, BEEP, BEEEEEP!!!! You roll over. 2:30 in the morning?  “Noooo,” you groan.  This must be some cruel joke that airlines like to play on their passengers, scheduling o’dark thirty departures. By four, you are in line, waiting to check in.  Then waiting for security. Then waiting for boarding.  It’s the game of hurry up […]
