Aired on May 18, 2013

If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at our world’s airports, you’ll enjoy today’s book club reading “Tales from the Tarmac”.  Author Claudia Oxee is a former runway model turned airline industry aficionado and her new book offers great insight into the crazy world of airport terminals when ground staff and passengers intersect.  With humor, warmth, and wit, Oxee shares her most memorable moments in the industry in hopes to entertain – and yes, enlighten! – all travelers, from the novice to the seasoned.  Oxee’s book is part ‘tell-all’ and part etiquette guide, but “Tales from the Tarmac” is also all heart and humor.

The book is an anthology on “behind the scenes” stories of the outlandish and bizarre interactions and incidents between passengers and ground staff at one of the world’s most intimidating airports, New York’s JFK and beyond. These actual tales take you on an emotionlal roller coaster, ranging from humorous to crazy, from poignant to the macabre. The author, along with her many colleagues who contributed their amazing stories have years of airport ground experience, both operational and in passenger handling.  To read more “Tales from the Tarmac” click HERE.
