Review by: resonant on Oct. 4, 2014 :
Amusing, but it would have been better if it focused more on the mishaps and adventures associated with flying, and less on drunken coworkers being tediously stupid away from the aircraft. Still, I'll definitely buy the author's next book too.

Very funny book. My ex-husband worked for a small charter airline, and I can tell you - a lot of strange things go on in the airline industry. Very enjoyable.

This was a hilariously funny, laugh out loud book. The first time author did a fabulous job! Can't wait for the next one.

Aviation meets "The Hangover." "Hauling Checks" is the story of a horibly disfunctional freight airline in it's twilight. Hilarity ensues as the moraly questionable employees of Checkflight make all the wrong descisions finding themselves in one predicament after another. The characters are memorable and the laughs are non-stop. Highly recommended!!!
