    Story
    "Good story if..."

    It's a good story and the author tells of his problems that he had in the airline industry and of the problems the airline industry has or had. My problem with this book was the narrator at times I felt he was reading just to past the time away and never really put an effort into the reading except when he announced the next chapter. If you get a hang in with the story the book does have some very informative parts to it and some very eye-opening parts as well.

    "Good Audio book, BUT"

    I completely agree with the authors suggestions that safety and professionalism should be top priorities in the airline industry. But this guy wants to ignore the laws of supply and demand. He wants to blame low pilot wages on everything from being so rich that you can afford to buy a right seat to affirmative action. The transportation industry has ALWAYS been highly competitive with thin profit margins. It's a good audio book. But the author suffers from a bad case of if you don't look like me, act like me, think like me, or talk like me, then something is wrong with you. America is a melting pot of cultures that some people embrace while others run. This guy is in a full sprint.

    Story
    "Realistic view of the Regional Airline Carriers."

    Very interesting view of the regional airline carriers, and their cost cutting, non-safety view of aviation. The only thing that was disappointing by the author, is his willingness to disregard safety when his bosses intimidated him into doing something that he he knew was
    totally unsafe, against FARs and was a threat to the life of his passengers and people on the ground.

    "Great Story"

    Great story but absolutely awful voice performance. Would be 5 stars with a better reader.

    Story
    "The career ladder is long."

    Peter, in all professions, when you are new and inexperienced there's long hours at low pay. Doctors, Lawyers, Engineerings, etc. You have to pay your dues. Unfortunately for you the rewards will not be seen because you didn't stick it out. Oh well.

    "good story but"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Squawk 7700 to be better than the print version?

    Audio recording had problems. Chapter numbers in player did not align with chapter numbers in book. Audio was sometimes garbled, and repeated.

    "A sad but true account of the aviation industry."

    IF your thinking of flying for a living, read this first! Some day things might change, but I doubt it.
