Carla is reluctant to visit Eddie on the extended Seattle stop as everyone finally finds out she is afraid to fly, or to be more precise she is afraid to crash. After the gang discuss ways to help Carla, Frasier decides that he could hold a week long pteromerhanophobia workshop ending with an actual flight on a plane. Carla agrees to participate. Frasier's workshop ends up doing the trick but not quite in the way he had anticipated. Meanwhile, Murray Treadwell, a local restaurant critic, is doing a series of reviews of bars. When Cheers was managed by Sam, Treadwell gave the bar a rotten review, so Rebecca will do anything to rectify that.

Trivia

The title references the Airport series of airplane disaster movies from the 1970s. There were four in the series, though the sequels weren't numbered, they were identified by the year in which they were set: Airport (1970), Airport 1975 (1974), Airport '77 (1977) and The Concorde... Airport '79 (1979). The title would jokingly set this episode as the fifth in the series. See more »

Airport V (#6.19)
3 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Eddie got a job as a Penguin for which he has to go to another state. He wants Carla to visit but she keeps on postponing it and he thinks that it is because she is ashamed of him. But the truth is that she is afraid of flying. Frasier comes in to help her and the rest of people with flying phobia, but becomes scared in the process himself.

Not a memorable episode. The whole thing with Eddie was pretty boring. Just as the side story about the review where people think Rebecca had to sleep with the reviewer. I didn't laugh even once there. The only thing that saves the episode from complete sucking and brings some laughs is Frasier.
