Trivia

The "Trident" aircraft used for exterior shots in the series was an ex-British Airways aircraft which suffered a heavy landing at Glasgow Prestwick International airport. It was found to be beyond economical repair to re-enter flight and became a training tool at the airport for tug-drivers and firemen. It was re-painted in "Air Scotia" colors specifically for the show. See more »

I wish this one had carried on for at least a few more programmes!
17 August 2004 | by (Herts, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An excellent programme with characters who were already well-developed when they first appeared.

Admittedly, the captain of the plane was very reminscent of Commander Bell, played by Ronnie Barker (qv) in the early series of the BBC Radio programme "The Navy Lark" but that made a new programme nostalgic!

Some of the best situations arose from people who really didn't like each other having to work together in a place where a) they couldn't get up and walk out, and b) they had to be all happy and smiling to the customers and pretend they were all part of one big happy family.

I am sure that, had the programme's run not been cut short after only a few episodes, the writing team would have been able to develop a lot more, and different, situations as they had the ability to include things which didn't only belong in an airline but benefited from the setting. It would have taken quite a while for the show to become one-dimensional. Great stuff!
