Air Mail : Letters from the World's Most Troublesome Passenger Paperback

2.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Terry Ravenscroft is the world's most eccentric air traveller.

He is the only man who has ever wanted to buy aeroplane lasagne for his personal consumption; been concerned about the likelihood of being sucked out of the window of an aircraft; lost sleep over the meaning of the name 'Aer Lingus'; or wanted to enjoy his flight with his inflatable rubber woman on his knee.

Air Mail is a comic anthology of letters that demonstrates how one man bamboozled and exasperated over forty international airlines, from British Airways to Air Malta.

It tackles everything from the common bugbears of excess baggage charges and duplicitous exchange rates to the more surreal predicament of how to fly an elephant back from India.

Riotously funny, Air Mail is a fresh take on the spoof-letter phenomenon.

Review by

An amusing read. However, out of all the 'annoying letters' books currently available, this is by no means the best. It got tiresome sooner than I would have liked, and isn't a book I have looked at again. Maybe worth a look, but don't have too high expectations.
