“Well, that’s probably the person I’m not saving.” – Jason Ostrowski

My guest for this episode is Jason Ostrowski – a flight attendant for a regional carrier here in the Twin Cities.  My co-host is Erik Swanson – my oldest (meaning we’ve known each other the longest) and also my best friend.  Erik and I asked Jason all sorts of questions about flying and being a flight attendant including:

  • Who are the most annoying types of passengers?
  • What happens when a person dies on a plane during a flight?
  • What is the procedure when passengers are caught in the act?

Jason and Erik are a couple of great guys and we had a really fun conversation.

Here’s the video of the show, but I should tell you, the podcast has an additional 10 minutes of Lightning Round questions and pre-show outtakes.
