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).

Okay- I have never seen the comedy duo's previous work "Little Britan" but apparently it is considered to be better than this. The only character that I dislike is Precious the coffee shop owner, repeatedly showing that she doesn't want to serve coffee by forcing a closing down by sabotaging, whence repeatedly saying "praise the lord". Some of the other characters have their moments - but 2 of David Williams' characters steal the show, the immigration officer and Moses Beacon, that maybe defining my sense of humour as sick (it is - but I do have a bar to set somewhere between funny and not funny sick jokes).
I have seen a majority of the episodes (but not all - I have little intention to watch that either - it's just that I could do better things with my free time). One of the redeeming things about this show if you like some characters but hate others then the time length of the parts some characters are on screen are 5 minutes before they go onto something else.
OVERALL: decent entertainment - nothing seriously outstanding about it.
