The Little Britain team parodies the various types of characters associated with life in a major British airport. That includes flight and ground staff from regular - and low budget airlines, as well as officials from customs and immigration, plus some colorful passengers, some up to no good either. Written by
Although seemingly an Arab character, Omar Baba is somewhat based on the Greek Cypriot entrepreneur Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of budget airline EasyJet. His appearance is similar to Stelios (balding, overweight, monobrow) and one of the jokes satirizes the fact his shipping magnate father gave him £30 million to start his business empire. Omar's strategy of cutting corners to provide low cost flights satirizes the business practices that European budget airlines such as Ryanair have been found guilty of and the name of his airline FlyLo is a takeoff of Flybe (it uses the same font in its logo).

This is an excellent comedy show by Matt Lucas and David Walliams. It blends the serious nature of some lesser known UK shows that catalogue the every day events of an airport with their usual unique flair of comedy. In Come fly with Me, new wacky eccentric characters are created to amuse, offend and be loved. The material the comedic pair use tends to always edge on the risqué. Some may not know their special brand of comedy and find the show offensive, all I have to say to those offended by Come Fly with Me, is to go and watch Little Britain or the American counterpart Little Britain USA, the show the comedians are best known for. So I'm definitely going to have to show my support for yet another brilliant British production of comedy and hope that people around the world can see it for what it really is, which is a bit of fun.
