Above and Beyond: Secrets of a Private Flight Attendant

By Saskia Swann and Nicola Stow

Saskia Swann is in deep trouble.

Heavily in debt, and earning peanuts as a ‘trolley dolly’, she desperately needs to get her life back on track. After a chance meeting, she lands a job as cabin crew – but this time on a private jet. 

Suddenly she is transported into a glittering world of oligarchs and billionaires where the hostesses wear Prada, seven-course meals are served on fine china, and the bodyguards all carry guns. And the mile-high shenanigans take place in luxury bedrooms, and sometimes in the cabin itself. 

But the job is not quite what it seems; Saskia’s billionaire boss Pavel has multiple mistresses, and he expects far more from his hostesses than cocktails and snacks. 

How far is Saskia willing to go to hang onto a job that has transported her into a world of luxury? And what risks is she prepared to run?

Above and Beyond is a gripping exposé of the world of the mega-rich that is both shocking and revealing. 

Saskia Swann worked for six years for one of the world’s leading airlines before becoming a corporate flight attendant on private jets. She lives outside London. 

Nicola Stow has been a journalist for more than 20 years working for leading newspapers and magazines. She is also the co-author of Cabin Fever: The Sizzling Secrets of a Virgin Air Hostess by Mandy Smith.
