What’s the one book you’d take to a desert island?

I’m a practical person (at least I think I am) and would choose “SAS Survival Guide” by John “Lofty” Wiseman. Sorry to disappoint the literary community with this selection.

Who’s the most interesting person you’ve sat next to on a plane?

I had the opportunity to sit next to Dr. Madeleine Albright several years after she served as Secretary of State. I was two rows behind Alan Greenspan when he led the Federal Reserve. He had too much security to even consider trying to have a conversation. I was also two rows behind Stevie Wonder, but he had the same security model as Greenspan.

What’s your favorite aircraft?

ARC’s airline owners won’t like my answer, but it’s any flight I am on where the seat next to me is empty. In terms of equipment, the 787.
