Joshua K aced his interviews with Northwest, United and Continental. "With your stuff it's a piece of cake," he said each time, "let me sell the stuff for you." And he did.
Jeanne E was thrilled when she saw us come to her graduation from Omni Air in Las Vegas. "You not only got me in, but you kept your word about coming for my graduation as well," she said. She loved her first Europesn layover in Germany.
"I am so happy that I found you on the 'net," said Nur Baz from Singapore. "Your stuff is incredible."
"Tom is super," said Jeremy I from Texas. "He guides you through anything that happens to you before, during and after training. To me, he is the father I have never had."
"Tom's books gave me the direction for my interviews, but Tom was the one who instilled in me the confidence I was lacking," said Valerie S from Pennsylvania. It did not take her too long and she became an instructor.
Reina from Singapore is preparing for either Singapore Airlines or the Emirates. "After I got Midnight Flight's materials, I realized what I have been doing wrong until now," she wrote us.
Many people think that success can be achieved only by hard work. True, hard work is a prt of any success story. But there is also another inherent part to making your dreams come true: be always ready whenever the opportunity arises. The virus has given you the time to get ready for your future interviews, instead of just scrambling at the last minute.
Use tyour time wisely and plan now.

Hiring is now at standstill in the United States and very much so elsewhere. Airlines and airplane leasing companies are canceling deliveries. Employees have a promise to be retained till the end of September 2020, but unless there is another government stimulus, there will be lay-offs and permanent furloughs. Almost 90% of U.S. airlines' passenger planes have been mothballed in the desert.
Most U.S. majors have already either announced potential lay offs or already asked their employees for unpaid time off and early retirement from employees. These reductions ripple into other, travel-related industries. The reason is that despite huge reduction in the number of routes and planes, the airlines are still losing money.
If the world economy does not get better soon, we'll wait for a long time to see improvement. It will take longer than after 9/11 and much longer than after SARS.s
IS IT A REAL AIR TRAVEL CRASH, OR ARE WE JUST TAKING NOW A DEEP BREATH BEFORE
THE NEW AIRLINE BOOM BEGINS?
When we started flying after 9/11, we worked almost empty airplanes. Flight attendants were offered time off without pay or early retirement. Ditto for pilots. Airlines offered all kinds of incentives, but the return to pre-9/11 "normal" was slow. Private jets saw a great boom during that time. Their safety and convenience were indisputable, but the expense was prohibitive to most smaller companies. Video-conferencing got a huge boost, but after some time it became apparent that video-conferencing is not such a sure-fire thing for closing important deals; it could not match the personal touch and a handshake.
Airlines seemed to put those tough time behind them when more people went back to commercial flying.The government readily bailed out many of them, while discriminating others that had to fold. And airlines got back at travelers with vengeance: charging for anything they could think off. This nickel-and-diming brought new billions into airlines' coffers and alienated passengers when they had to pay extra for window seats, isle seats, front of plane seats, not mentioning overcharging for sandwiches and drinks. Flight attendants became vendors, selling anything from little trinkets to credit cards.
Not too long ago some major airlines boasted that they had a huge cushion for emergencies. This cushion has amazingly shrunk when push came to shove after the virus put air travel to just about standstill. The government was called upon again, and the government helped, with conditions. One big condition was that all employees will be kept on payroll at least till the end of September 2020. But unless there is another huge "stimulus" air travel won't get much better by the end of September and furloughs will follow. Airline bosses are more concerned about their well-being than the well-being of the people who make the business work. We saw it when most airlines were initiaally very reluctant to agree to flight attendants wearing masks on the plane. It took a few dead flight attendants and hundreds more who got infected by coronavirus before the airlines saw that the potential for law suits was great, and they better protect their employees from the virus. Airlines are begging would-be travelers again. Fares across the country can be as low as $35/one way.
It is something to consider if you think about embarking on this normally great career.
