An air hostess who served on private jets to billionaires romped with her boss and was spoiled with lavish and expensive gifts, a new book claims.
Writing under the pen name of Saskia Swann, the veteran flight attendant has offered a first-hand account of life looking after the 1% as they travel all across the world in her book Above And Beyond: Secrets Of A Private Flight Attendant.
Her biography tells all on Saskia's oligarch boss, who wined, dined, and bedded her in luxury hotels – while also getting her to clean up after his mistresses.
The 47-year-old also details the perks of working aboard luxury jets, including big pay packets and designer wardrobes.
Saskia had to sign eight confidentiality agreements before she was offered her first non-commercial airliner job working for a Russian billionaire, named in the book as Pavel.
On the plus side, her £40,000 annual salary was a big upgrade and she regularly got to stay in five-star hotels and wear designer outfits.
Less enjoyable was the frantic efforts she had to make to hide Pavel's affairs from his wife and two children.
On one occasion, Saskia accompanied the family from Istanbul to LA before having to discard all evidence that they'd been on the flight in time for his mistress to arrive.
If the blonde model found a single brunette hair left onboard "we'll all be sacked", the flight attendant was told.
Later on, Saskia was warned that Pavel expected his private jet workers to have sex with him, and that she would be fired if she said no.

Her time came during a trip to New York when she received a text at 5pm.
In £20k of debt at the time and staying in a £1,000 a night room, Saskia accepted her boss's invitation after breaking down in tears.
She was delivered a box containing a bandage dress and diamond necklace and then whisked to a high-end restaurant for a pricey meal.
Dessert came in the form of oysters, caviar, and champagne in a penthouse suite decked in chandeliers, luxurious glass balconies, and lacquered walls.
"Our dancing ended in sex, on the luscious carpet among scraps of food," she said.
"'Interminable missionary sex. I'm sure Pavel had taken Viagra…I closed my eyes and let him continue."
The following morning Saskia woke up in bed alone but for punishing thoughts that she was a "prostitute".

Despite her feelings of self-loathing, fear for her job and large levels of debt saw the one night stand quickly become a regular fling.
Three years passed before Saskia began working for a Saudi prince she calls Hossein.
Saskia was told Hussein's plane was a safe jet, which meant the plane's owner didn't expect his flight attendants to have sex with him.
There she was asked to sprinkle a few white rose petals on the pillows of his wife, and "bucket loads" of red petals when his mistresses were around.
Once she caught Hossein engaging in some mid-air afternoon delight.
"There were lumps and bumps moving beneath the cashmere blanket, clothes discarded on the floor, and what looked to be a thong the colour of raw squid coiled on the table next to the canapés," she recalled.
Above And Beyond: Secrets Of A Private Flight Attendant, by Saskia Swann and Nicola Stow, (Lume Books) is out on Thursday, £9.99.
