From check-in to flight crew, from baggage handlers to immigration, Come Fly With Me reveals what really goes on behind the scenes at one of the UK's biggest airports. Meet Omar Baba, the self-publicising owner of FlyLo and his bitchy check-in girls Melody and Keeley; action-movie enthusiast Taaj or paparazzi Mickey and Buster. And once through security, join Fearghal in economy, Penny Carter in first class, and bickering husband and wife Simon and Jackie Trent in the cockpit.
- Come Fly with Me: Series 1 review by PN
This is essentially a spoof mockumentary of the airport shows that used to be popular, infused with the humour of Little Britain. If you watched those airport shows you'll recognise the characters that this show is hinting at. The young aspiring trolley dollys, the dodgy CEO's, fast food workers, every facet of the airport mocked with wicked humour.
I really wish there were more of this series, it was original and felt like the evolution of Little Britain but it seemed Matt Lucas wanted to discontinue the show which is a shame. If you like spoofs or love Little Britain, this is essential viewing. 6 great episodes, farcical yet unnervingly accurate at the same time.
