Ask The Pilot was a quick read, but was entertaining. It suffers from the typical meta and redundancy issues of a column/blog that has been converted into book form. I’m not sure that I learned anything new per se about planes and flying, though it was nice to hear “Want to know how to help the pilots? Get the fuck out of the aisle during boarding and shut your damn kid up for the remainder of the flight” if not in exactly those words. The insights into the seniority system of the airlines and the union negotiations was a bit interesting, if not taken to nearly the depth I think I would enjoy. Probably a good read for somebody who hasn’t flown too much, or is afraid of flying. 7/10.
