You can't have a mid-life crisis in the airline industr

You can’t have a mid-life crisis in the airline industry because every day is a crisis.
Herb Kelleher
I came from the music business, which reputedly has the biggest egos, but I really think the airline world caps it.
Tony Fernandes
Airline food is cooked in an oven and then kept warm. Space station food is often cooked in an oven and then thermo-stabilised, irradiated or dehydrated and then stored for a year or two before you even get to it.
Chris Hadfield
The only airline I avoid like the plague is Ryanair. I don’t like that, when you book, there are then all of these little extras to pay for, and you end up paying more than just flying with British Airways.
Eddie the Eagle
Running an airline is a normal job. Racing is more.
Niki Lauda
I’ve spent my life as an airplane mechanic, pilot, aircraft manufacturer and airline CEO who never lost a life or an airplane. I am considerate of the risk we take every time we fly. I also know we need to fly and always to improve safety.
Gordon Bethune
I have heard from many readers since ‘The Girl in the Blue Beret’ came out. The story of my airline pilot, former B-17 bomber pilot Marshall Stone, on his search to find the people who helped him during World War II has struck a chord.
Bobbie Ann Mason
Well, one of the myths early on that I think is one of the funnier things we’ve done is airline toilet seats. That one was about a large woman that sat down on a seat in an airline and flushed the toilet and got stuck on it.
Jamie Hyneman
I had some airline stock, but the airlines tanked. I didn’t have a lot of money in them, though.
Mickey Gilley
With any luck, by the time NASA’s space probe hits Pluto, you’ll be booking a spaceflight with a privately run suborbital airline.
Burt Rutan
This airline is grateful for his extensive contributions and we will miss his friendship and support. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Casey family on its personal loss.
Gerard Arpey
Marlon Brando came up to me many, many years ago. He wanted me to do a little doodle for him on the back of an airline ticket.
Peter Max
I see easyHotel as one of the best, most natural extensions of the ‘easy’ brand from the airline. EasyHotel is raising money to accelerate growth at a much faster rate than I could have grown it as a private company, whilst enabling me to spend more time on my diversified portfolio of other investments.
Stelios Haji-Ioannou
Not having an administrator sends the wrong message to the airline industry.
Maria Cantwell
The winters are too long, and there’s only one airline, so it’s difficult to escape when you feel frustrated or claustrophobic. The audience for our films isn’t very large, so it’s difficult to support an industry. But, Iceland is beautiful. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine living anywhere else.
Baltasar Kormakur
During my career as an airline pilot, I had the opportunity to be a check and training captain. Part of this job was to train and test experienced pilots to ensure that they had the necessary knowledge and skills to safely and efficiently operate those magnificent big jets.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
I always have a notebook – I have kept diaries since I was eight years old. My preferred choice is a Moleskine because they have a pocket at the back where I can keep airline tickets and my passport.
Carol Drinkwater
When I started my airline business, I didn’t know everything, right? If I start up a newspaper tomorrow, I might get ripped off by journalists. You’d be naive to think you know everything from day one.
Tony Fernandes
I’m not opposed to talking about airline food.
Tig Notaro
Malaysia Airlines is a robust airline – it’s been around for many years. It has an excellent reputation, both for service and for safety.
Richard Quest
The scientific theory I like best is that the rings of Saturn are composed entirely of lost airline luggage.
Mark Russell
The guest gets at least as much service with us as with some established airline, if not even more. And at by far a favourable price. Thus the passengers remain gladly with us.
Niki Lauda
Failure saves lives. In the airline industry, every time a plane crashes the probability of the next crash is lowered by that. The Titanic saved lives because we’re building bigger and bigger ships. So these people died, but we have effectively improved the safety of the system, and nothing failed in vain.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
I don’t enjoy traveling in America. I don’t like the food, the cars. It is not exotic enough. It all tastes a bit like airline food.
Carla Bley
Afghanistan does have an air force: It has two C-130s. I saw one of them. It was nice, a gift from the United States. But two planes don’t even make a Caribbean charter airline, let alone an air force for a country at war.
Richard Engel
The most horrifying thing I ever did was work as a steward on an airplane. I wanted to get hired by United. I thought, ‘With my languages, this will be amazing; I will work in First Class.’ But I could only get a job with an airline going from Newark, New Jersey to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
