Win – 3 copies of Air Babylon up for grabs

Air Babylon – by  Imogen Edwards-Jones, published by Random House, £12.99

EVER had a dodgy tummy after a flight? Hmm, you’ve probably been rude to the cabin crew then.

Sticking laxatives in the drinks of rude or unruly passengers might seem a little juvenile, but what else is a hard-pressed trolley dolly going to do to get her own back?

This, and many more unpleasant secrets of life in the sky are unveiled in Air Babylon, a warts-and-all look at those working at the sharp end of the aviation industry.

Just like her earlier book Hotel Babylon, where Edwards-Jones revealed the dodgy dealings and sexual shenanigans at a top London five-star hotel, this book is packed with tales – both accurate and apocryphal – that are guaranteed to make your next flight a much more enjoyable experience.

Want to know the best place to have sex on an aircraft? Heard the one about the air hostess sacked for sitting on the face of a long-haul passenger? Blimey, that alone makes it a first-class read.

So if you want a great summer book for your holidays send us your name, agency address and the worst thing that has happened to you on a flight (or the best, if you know what I mean) to Air Babylon Competition, TW2, Quadrant House, The Quadrant, Sutton, Surrey, SM2 5AS by July 29. The funniest three to be published will win a copy of the book
