The Travel Detective Flight Crew Confidential : Pilots are notoriously frugal, and flight attendants are underpaid and on a budget. They may hit one city four to six times a month, but they are there only for about twenty-four to thirty-six hours at a time (or even less), so they always know where to go when they hit the ground running - and where to get the best value for their money. The Travel Detective Flight Crew Confidential reveals everything pilots and flight attendants know about: great shopping (from shoelaces in London to silk in Bangkok to leather in Sao Paulo); services (great inexpensive manicures in Tokyo and medical care in Paris); food and drink (the best bars in Key West, with the cheapest drinks, and the best pizza in Boston). Also revealed here are their secret ways to navigate the world's airports during layovers - and their special insights into airline safety and security. The insights of those who speak out in The Travel Detective Flight Crew Confidential are, in their own words - good, bad, or ugly - and identified by name and airline. Opinionated, often controversial, but always helpful, The Travel Detective Flight Crew Confidential is a resource that those who fly cannot afford to be without.
