Andy's Travelogue

As an employee of an airline, I'm entitled to concessionary staff travel. In other words, I get cheap flights. It's the only perk I get from the airline (no company cars, free tickets to the opera, expense account lunches or private medical care for us!). In fact, if it wasn't for the cheap travel, I think I would have moved to a different job years ago... Anyway, I try to make full use of the situation, and I've tried to provide you with an idea of what it's like flying as a standby airline employee in these pages. All the photos are taken by me, and comprise some of my favourite snaps over the years (i.e. the ones that came out looking surprisingly good!). I hope you enjoy them.
