Astrid Jones desperately wants to confide in someone, but her mother's pushiness and her father's lack of interest tell her they're the last people she can trust. Instead, Astrid spends hours lying on the backyard picnic table watching airplanes fly overhead. She doesn't know the passengers inside, but they're the only people who won't judge her when she asks them her most personal questions . . . like what it means that she's falling in love with a girl. As her secret relationship becomes more intense and her friends demand answers, Astrid has nowhere left to turn. She can't share the truth with anyone except the people at thirty thousand feet, and they don't even know she's there. But little does Astrid know just how much even the tiniest connection will affect these strangers' lives--and her own--for the better. In this truly original portrayal of a girl struggling to break free of society's definitions, Printz Honor author A.S. King asks readers to question everything--and offers hope to those who will never stop seeking real love.

Fasten Your Seatbelt: The Passenger is Flying the Plane is the fourth in a series written at the encouragement of practitioners in the global airline industry. Core customers are beginning to seize control of the direction of the industry from airline management. Customers are doing so due to deep dissatisfaction with what is being offered by traditional carriers across all areas, including network, product, price, customer service and the distribution system. New airlines have clearly focused business designs with the discipline to reject non-valued products or services. In the US, new airlines score higher in customer satisfaction, offering lower fares and making larger operating profits. This book is about customer behaviour and how to address it. It provides detailed but easy-to-read practical discussion of the changes required on the part of airline management not only to think boldly, but also to execute courageously and relentlessly, ground-breaking strategies to fly ahead of their customers. As with previous books written by Nawal Taneja, the primary audience continues to be senior level practitioners within the global airline industry - in both traditional carrier and low complexity carrier segments. The approach is impartial, candid and pragmatic, based on what is happening in the actual market place rather than theoretical business models.

But when they land, a mysterious driver meets them at the airport in a pink car adorned with feathers. He has never heard of their Uncle Red. Like Dorothy in Oz, they find themselves in an unknown place, with no idea of how to get home. Time is running out . . .

This NAO report examines the delays to passengers on main line rail services and what needs to be done to reduce such incidents. In the 2006-07 period, 0.8 million incidents led to 14 million minutes of delay to franchised passenger rail services, costing a minimum of £1 billion (which averages around £73 for each minute of delay) in the time lost to passengers. The NAO examines how well Network Rail and the Train Operating Companies work together along with the emergency services in resolving unexpected rail incidents. The incidents themselves could be infrastructure faults, fleet problems, fatalities and trepass. The Audit Office has set out a number of recommendations, including: that Network Rail should have in place procedures for notifying emergency services personnel of relevant telephone numbers to be used during incidents and should examine the costs and benefits of introducing a dedicated national telephone number for emergency; Train Operating Companies should implement the good practice guidelines issued by the Association of Train Operating Companies for the accurate and useful initial information to passengers and frequency of updates; they also should use other means of communicating information, such as visual displays onboard trains; Network Rail should analyse its own incident review reports centrally to draw together lessons from across the network; whlist Train Operating Companies should complete more detailed incident reports to cover best practice and lessons learned and further develop contingency plans for stations so staff can respond quickly to disruption; that organisations across the transport sector including Network Rail, the British Transport Police and the Highways Agency should pool the lessons learned from the various rail incidents and the Department of Transport should encourage sharing of best practice and experience across the sector.
