Hi, just wondered if anyone else subscribes to the above pod cast? I've subscribed to it on I Tunes for about 6 months now and find it very entertaining.
It's by a flight attendant called Betty (obviously not her real name) who is with a major US carrier. She records some very funny stories from other flight attendants and flight crew on a variety of subjects ranging from weird and wacky passengers through to funny situations on board and on the ground.
In the last but one episode she talked about a possible book deal that was lined up, so wondered if anyone on the other side of the pond had heard anything about it?
I wasn't sure if this is the right forum to put this into, so please let me know if it should be in another.

Have listened since its conception. One of my top five favourite podcasts for sure, I'm glad someone started a thread on it because I'm not sure it has been mentioned before. Great for any aspiring flight attendants, or just aviation fans in general.
One gets pretty used to "major U.S. carrier" with these podcasts, but with both Betty and Joe d'Eon's it is pretty easy to figure out the airline is DL after listening to even two podcasts, since quite a number of stories begin with, "We were flying out of Atlanta," or, "We were laying over in Atlanta," and there's talks of widgets and what not. In his podcast, Joe edited out mentions of DL, but with one story in which the repeated use of the company name was necessary he let it go. In several more, in the background, "767-400" can be heard, which really narrows it down.
I'm pretty sure Betty is her real name. She went on a radio show for an interview exceeding half an hour and used that name as well. I while ago she mentioned that a book was on the way; I'd imagine that is still in the production stages.
