Want to know what really goes on on an aeroplane? Let's go behind the scenes and fly high with these tall tales and gossip from the galley!

Everyone wants to be a flight attendant, or at least they want to know about the cushy lifestyle they lead - flying to exotic destinations, swanning about in five-star hotels, daytime lazing around the pool and night-time tabletop dancing with Bollywood stars. At last the lid is lifted. Come on board a real airline with a real flight attendant and find out what really goes on.

In Confessions of a Qantas Flight Attendant - True Tales and Gossip from the Galley, Owen Beddall dishes the dirt - he tells you the things you always wanted to know (and maybe a few things you didn't) about the glamorous world of flying. This book is packed with cabin crew adventures and misadventures in and out of that smart uniform in far flung places. There's sex, drugs and lots of celebrity gossip; Katy Perry, Lily Allen, Kylie Minogue, Venus Williams and Cate Blanchett - are all in the galley having a gossip with Owen.

Confessions of a Qantas Flight Attendant is a hilariously bumpy ride around the world with a very funny man.


  • A Great Aussie Read !

    By Porcepedz
    This will written , Honest and relatable book really highlights all that is great with a career as an Air Hostess , but at the same time enlightens us and sadly confirms what many already thought about the greed and downfall of Australia’s great airline !
  • Fantastic Read and Perspective into the QANTAS culture

    By butterflywings
    I have been wanting to read this for awhile. I couldn't put the book down and I really enjoyed the stories and the author's perspective on the changing company culture at QANTAS in particular their personal experience working on board. It was highly entertaining and provided insight into the airlines operations and how they manage injured employees. It's truly sad to see such an iconic Australian brand sell out to corporate greed and in turn destroy all the values that made it a great brand to work and fly with.

    This guy is obviously one of those people who thinks they deserve EVERYTHING. Some parts are funny but so not worth the price of the book at all.
  • Loved it!

    This is a fantastic read, i take my hat off to all flight attendants, they make our journeys more comfortable and tend to us when we are grumpy and anxious, top it off they don't even get tips. Eye opening book into the real world of flying. Thank you
  • It's an interesting take on QANTAS

    By Moët fan
    This book is a good read. I recommend buying it. I have more respect for airline crew and am envious of the fabulous lifestyle and beautiful hotels staff call home for the 2-3 days they are there. It's very one sided. I emphasise with the author but can completely understand Qantas' actions. All in all... Buy the book, I loved reading it.
  • Maintenant, je comprends.

    Traveling for years as a business customer, I have seen Qantas' actions destroy their once quality flying experience; now there is a personal insight into how employees are effected. The stories are short and interesting (ranging from alarming to humorous) making this book an enjoyable and quick read; and always thinking "whatever next"!

    Easy to read and couldn't put it down. Thanks for the insight into what was a proud & fantastic airline that unfortunately has lost its gloss on the world stage. But like every company it is sometimes the employees that are the gems. (Flygal).

    Enjoyable read
  • Not an enjoyable read...

    By Salldog
    Really disappointed. Poor writing and uninteresting stories. No wonder poor Qantas is struggling if this the normal behaviour of their staff!! Don't bother!
  • Easy read

    By Kirzoj
    This was possibly the quickest I've ever read a book, I couldn't put it down! There are however a few grammatical errors which should have been picked up in the editing process. I'd certainly be interested in Qantas' response!
