In flight no one can hear you snore …
John Reilly could be the pseudonym of any modern airline pilot. Fatigued from overwork and dismayed by relentless cost cutting, Captain Reilly finds himself developing an unhelpful aversion to the very people who pay his salary: passengers and managers.
Riding with the Captain on a typical flight, we watch as he struggles with the challenges facing today’s airline pilot: staying awake, keeping crew food down, fending off flirtatious cabin crew and completing the crossword before landing.
But, forced to work away from home, Captain Reilly encounters a new challenge: how to prevent his family life deteriorating faster than the once respected profession that still pays his bills.
The Life of Captain Reilly is a shocking but hilarious insider tale of the modern airline that reveals the industry’s greatest secret: glamour doesn’t fly anymore.

J.T. O’Neil is the pen name of a full time captain with a major European low cost airline. Foolishly encouraged by the inexplicable popularity of his revealing blog, he has somehow contrived to patch together snippets of his life as a glorified bus driver, and churned out a couple of novels.
Born in northern England, but educated in the rest of the world, J.T. O’Neil claims not to remember the Sixties, which means he must have been around for at least some of that decade.
As a futile attempt at literary credibility, J.T. O’Neil studied literature and creative writing with the Open University, and now thinks he knows what he’s doing.
