the questions you ask do suggest a great interest in being a f/a. however those books are secured and have to be sworn off before given to f/a however getting one legally would not happen go to shows and dont brag about it cause you could be arrested if you are seen with one and are not a f/a

Are you sure.
I was on a US Airways flight, and the Attendant gave me his book. I also have a UAL announcement book.

Why does the airline care, if a passenger has an announcement book? There is no big secret in them. In my books, they have safety speechs, inflight services, pre landing announcements, and arrival speeches. They also have those general announcements. Most of them I've heard already.

Scared flyer (cool name BTW!)
Just be nice to them. Talk to a f/a, and maybe by the end of the flight they will give you there book. You never know, until you ask.

I've never heard of any "announcement book" Most f/a's have a manual, known as their "flight attendant bible" And if they are caught onboard w/out this, they can be fined for up to $1,000. There is information in their contaning things like, How to handle a terrorist, and stuff like that, that can't be shown to the public. One f/a told me once she wouldn't even let her husband see it.
But.. if this is true and there is some kind of announcement book, i would REALLY be interested in seeing this : )

It seems like it all depends on where you work.
My airline have announcementbooks onboard, 2 regular and 2 emergency.But we also have a personal manual for all the other stuff you mentioned. But we are not fined if we are caught onboard w/o it.
If this person would like a copy of an announcementbook,I don't think european airliners would give him a hard time getting one!?

What should one be more scared of asking a FA: going out or instructions handbook?

Well, in either case, the worst the FA could say is No! =)

Fortunately for me, the one that I am engaged to said yes... However, I have never asked her for her instruction book, but I am sure I could read it if I wanted to.... Maybe I will ask tonight.

Most flight attendants have about 5 or 6 just laying around, anyway. Even when the slightest wording is changed, 20,000 (or more) copies of the announcement booklet must be re-printed.

The Inflight Handbook that FA's use detail every scenario that they might run into, whether it be a man going into cardiac arrest, to a hijacker, or even to changing a passenger reading light on the 777. It includes specifics about each of the aircraft in the airline's fleet (as far as cabin information goes), such as how to open each and every door, packboard release handles (747-200 only), where safety items are located, etc. Probably the largest section, however, covers service standards and procedures for every aircraft and every configuration. Hundreds of pages detail how wine should be poured, and include queen cart set ups (the "open" carts with only three levels), and fold-out diagrams of how each and every meal service in every cabin goes ("4 FA's start pickup from front of YC while Galley and Galley Assist restock LC to prepare for Wine Service"-777 European YC ops). Quite a fascinating book! Very fun to read!

There've been a few sold on eBay lately. The Pan Am one went for a pretty price, but others have been more economical.
