Not Helpful for first time learners

In-Flight Hebrew is not useful for learning and understanding the language. It "teaches" you in long sentances and most of the time you do not even know what the individual words you are saying mean. This, combine with the lack of repetition means it is very hard to retain knowledge from this audio book. I purchased both this one, and the Primsler's one. I initially tried to start learning with this, and quickly gave up as it would say something in English, repeat it in Hebrew, and then pause just long enough for you to repeat what was said. Then they would move on to the next saying. I found myself needing to rewind and listen carefully to what was said in Hebrew over and over to be able to repeat it correctly. This annoyance, combine with not really "learning" what I was saying made me stop trying with this one after about 5 minutes. I did go back after completeing the first Primsler's book, and found it easier to understand and repeat, but this one is not going to teach you on your flight over as it claims. You might be able to memorize a few of the sayings, but you would find it very hard to understand anyone answering you which really should be what your goal is in learning a new languange.

Not very useful

I tried several quick Hebrew audio courses, just to get a few basic words and phrases, while working in Jerusalem for a few months last. I thought this was the weakest and most confusing of them, I don't recommend it.

Good intro to Hebrew but learn some grammar too

Good choice of words and phrases. Pronunciation is native Israeli so if you can hear it you can master it with some practice. The choice of material is good including both essential phrases and more esoteric stuff for making conversation.

Plan to listen to it about 8 times for any material to take - so don't expect to listen to it on the plane and be an expert in an hour.

Some caution should be taken - this audio title doesn't teach you the basics of grammar, only words and phrases. For example, you might miss the fact that most of the verbs are said in the female form.

In addition, it has American influences: For example, Ham does not feature all that highly in Israel so you might not bother learning that in the food section even if there is a word for it.

In all, I would say this is a very useful audiobook and your effort will be appreciated.
