The Staff~ Martha and Chip. Post a comment below!

My hair on straight?

“Flying frequently ~ for a living!” ~ Based in beautiful San Francisco, Martha is a well seasoned Flight Attendant for a major US airline. Although friendly service is an important job requirement, Martha works tirelessly maintaining a safe, stable, and secure environment while hosting hundreds of somewhat unstable, often insecure, and not-always-friendly passengers stuffed inside a metal tube hurling through space at over 500 mph. Seems like a crazy life huh? It is. It’s Martha’s life, and she’s living it crazy.

This is Martha’s fifth airline. For her, being a Flight Attendant is not so much a career as it is an addiction. How does she do it?  “Like I put on my pantyhose, one leg at a time”.

Chip says ~ “What do I love most about Martha? Her schedule and that she’s away a lot. Hey, I’m no dummy!”



Whoa! No open flames.

Chip “a wood man is hard to find” ~ Chip is Martha’s other half. Well, other quarter really. These two lovebirds have been going at it for several months now. You may be wondering how they met? With Martha’s hectic travel schedule, and Chip playing a Vegas gig at the time, the chances of meeting were less than zero. Tired of one night stands, losers, and bimbos, they turned to a well-known dating service. With the click of mice, they met, fell in love, and the rest is history.


What Martha says about Chip ~ “For me, it’s a wood thing”

    Your site rocks Martha.(If that REALLY is your name).
    I recently retired after flying for 43 years with DAL/PAA. Please check out videos on YouTube I recorded on board in the last few month before I retired.

    Thanks for the “notable” mention! As you’ve always been, you’re linked on my page as well! Love what you’ve done with the site!

    You spelled my name wrong in the headline. Would you mind fixing it? Just for the sake of accuracy. Love the story!

    We think that the way you handle Chip is THE way to handle passengers… If you want to make it “airline number 6” give us a call. Thromby Air – The Lowest of the Low

    I love your site. I recently retired from Delta after 30 yrs. and it feels good to see someone making light of an industry that gets “no respect”. Keep up the good work and to your success!

    I saw a comment about people asking whether they can use the bathrooms while the plane is on the ground. On trains you weren’t allowed to because it did go directly onto tracks. We just have some history.

    While yes we have once in a blue moon witnessed bad behaviour from passengers, the attendants have reached a new level of arrogance and unacceptable conduct.

    Don’t like serving Coke for 30 years, get another job (career is too generous a description as the level of professionalism is practically non-existent in flight attendants today).

    This is my personal favourite: Flight attendants that justify their laziness and rudeness with “this is for your safety”. Perhaps you should recognize the fact that the majority of travellers are responsible and decent people not the clowns you seem to imagine.

    In our case flying is not elective, it is mandatory – it is almost guaranteed that our experience will prove unpleasant; leaving us with an enormous headache by the time we exit the plan. And yes, I am one of the passengers that rarely say good-bye or thank-you, as I find your fake smile at the door nauseating after observing your conduct during the flight, where was your smile then?

    I for one miss the well-groomed and “service with a smile” stewardesses that existed when I started business in the 70’s. And please, don’t get me started on your lack of grooming (unkempt hair, chipped nail polish, yellowed and/or creased shirts, unpolished shoes, etc.)

    Just stumbled onto your site and love it. I have fond memories of flying “back in the day” and have always had a love affair with the skies. Even as Flight attendants and Pilots continue to try to keep the norm with their professional behavior and attire, I have become more disappointed in my fellow travelers need to dress like they just rolled out of bed…or worse.
    I try to upgrade to first or business class whenever possible, not because the service is better (but let’s face it, it usually is) but because there are whole parts of that experience that remind me of the gilded era of flying when people were nice and pleasant to each other, and they socialized as a need to learn and share.
    Traveling to me is still about the experience – I’m a general aviation pilot as well and marvel at the physics behind getting these big beautiful hulks into the air.
    Thanks for creating this awesome site!

    I work in aviation too, just on the other end of it literally- I am a mechanic for the last 10 years. I love you sight and share it with my fellow airline friends. I love how you bring things to sight that others forget. We truly are all together a industry that is under appreciated and under acknowledged. Keep up your hard work on the birds..

    Love – LOVE – L O V E your site. Just discovered it today. With 19 years under my wings, I got quite a chuckle from it. Keep us laughing… I call it “stupid people tricks” kinda like “Jay Walking” on Leno. I am based on the East Coast with many of your former PE teammates.
