Love Built An Airline

I find myself asking the same question that a confused reader wrote ‘Dear Sugar.’ ‘Dear Sugar,’ backed by the devotion of Cheryl Strayed, anonymously bares her heart and soul— vulnerably and authentically— to answer inquiries on life, love, loss, and whatever topic the submitted email asks to discuss.

I’m A Flight Attendant ‘Living The Dream:’ This Is What It Looks Like (Really)

A�Monday 2030 EST:A�It’s check-in. I’m working “a turn” to OSL. A turn is a two-day trip at my company. It’s somewhat of a joke between longhaul.
