This is the most incredible read i have ever had. I don't even have the attention span to read letters to the editor but i devoured this in one sitting; absolutely fantastically written. Thanks so much for sharing.

I think I said this last time you posted one of these: This is the best trip report I've ever read. So awesome to read behind the scenes.

What a fascinating and riveting report. A wonderful insight into the lives of those not often thought about heros who step up to the plate during irreg ops.

I tip my hat to you sir

All the best with whichever direction your career takes you from here.

You've no doubt made for many tired mornings. Flawless writing makes it a joy to read, and the content makes it impossible to put down. Appreciate the honesty and good humor through the toughest of circumstances. I'm always amazed at your ability to blend leadership, professionalism, camaraderie and care, and have the utmost respect and admiration for your work at GIA. It takes a special kind of person to do this, and this shines through every corner of this report.

Well sean, it was worth waiting for. Great report,

To all of you reading this report, i have had the pleasure of being looked after by the writer on flights, and despite all the hassle, stress and general grief from many passengers, he still remains totally professional whilst making sure his CIP's get eveyr possible attention.

This is simply the most brilliant trip-report you've ever written B747-437B IMHO.

Your gain (of freedom) is a real loss for Ghana International. All the best to you for your upcoming career and enjoy the upcoming time of being grounded.

Fantastic report. Sorry to hear of the personal toll it took on you - but I hope now you've had some time and space to recover, you'll be happy.

(Have you thought about writing a book?! )

An enjoyable read B747-437B, in fact a classic for Trip Reports. It is an eye opener to see things from the perspective of the other side. I'm not sure how you deal with it all as it seems quite stressful.
Happy travels.

I'm seriously behind in the news department. That's what I get for not reinstalling IM/MSN after my computer blew up. You? Not in an airport for 2 months? The sun truly is setting in the east.

This may well be the best thing I've ever read on these pages. I think you can easily find a commercial marketplace for your, undoubtedly, infinite and 100% true stories. Thank you, and I hope you are well.
