Airplane Mode (flying cartoons)

Wrong Captain

Every once in a while I read something that (literally) gets me laughing out loud. This is one of those times… From the bright mind and pastel colored pen of Flight Attendant author Kelly Kincaid, her “Airplane Mode” is 130+ pages of Jetlagged Comic flying cartoons focused in on her wonderfully wacky characters like Bev, Wanda, and Rob. Of course the cartoons also target a few pilots, some passengers, gate agents, bad weather, dodgy hotels, family & spouses, clueless friends, hidden pets, long hours, boarding queues…

Look, everybody who flies gets dunked into the pool with Kelly, and everyone will see a bit of a reflection of some people they either know or have run into up there…

Large Coffee

Shameless plug, but this book was so good that when I met Kelly (and her husband Rob) for lunch in Seattle, I ended up buying 5 copies of it (4 as gifts, 1 for myself). Aw heck, I  even put up a 5-star review on Amazon.


Consider this review as a teaser, providing a few of her cartoons to give you an idea of what you are in for as you flip the pages. Very family friendly too – every cartoon is totally PG, and no problem at all sharing with kids.


It really does not matter what your aviation role is, or even if you are just a passenger (like me). There are guaranteed to be many cartoons in here that you will relate to, laugh at, and enjoy. Kelly just has an eye for highlighting the humor in flying and in aviation today.


You can find&follow her on Twitter as @JetlaggedComic, or on Facebook, and on the web she has a website for all things “Jetlagged” at

UPDATE ! Volume II (Jetway Reunion) is now available on Amazon or direct from Kelly  (signed)
