Storyline

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.

Trivia

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).

There's something special in the air...
4 July 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Another great jab at the world from the great satire nation of Britain. "Come Fly With Me" welcomes you into the busy world of British aviation and all the things that happen in the airport.

With Matt Lucas and David Walliams portraying just about every role in the series, then you are in for somewhat of a treat, because these two are really great together on the screen, but they also manage to portray a lot of quirky characters well and in a way that you actually sort of bond with each unique character and enjoy every segment individually.

The characters, as mentioned above, are quirky, but they are also very vibrant, colorful, three-dimensional and unique. And that is a really important trait to the series, and both Matt Lucas and David Walliams rose up to the occasion and delivered one impressive performance after another.

Sure, this might not just be in the liking for everyone, as British humor can be somewhat of an acquired taste. However, if you enjoyed "Benny Hill", "Black Books", "Father Ted", "Black Adder" or "Little Britain" (obviously), then you will also enjoy "Come Fly With Me". It is a great comedy spoof of the reality TV show the initially invited viewers into the aviation industry.

The most disappointing thing is that the series were limited to only 6 episodes, spanning over about 173 minutes. The series could most definitely had more episodes as the characters just had so much to offer.

Prepare to fly high with FlyLo.
