Airline - A&E's reality show gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the flying biz
Posted by David Lambert
1/10/2005


Take off on the hit A&E reality series Airline, where every flight is a guaranteed trip to the land of zany human behavior. Travel has never been so much fun!

Everyday the hard-working and harried employees of Southwest Airlines interact with thousands of weary, giddy, fussy, confused, grumpy, and sometimes genuinely nice travelers. The results are pure entertainment, full of all-too-real drama and unexpected comedy. From smelly passengers, weather delays, and gospel singers to tired executives, howling children and celebrity sightings (including Randy Travis, Sisqo, and American Idol's William Hung), each fast-paced episode of Airline captures the unforgettable and oh-so-familiar realities of flying. At the same time, the behind-the-scenes views of America's fourth largest carrier bring a truly new appreciation for getting there at all.

Culled from nearly 5,000 hours of footage at two of America's busiest airports - Los Angeles International and Chicago Midway - Airline features all 18 episodes of its debut season on DVD for the first time.

Airline - The Complete Season 1 touches down on March 29th in a 2-DVD set for $29.95 SRP ($39.95 in Canada). Running time is 6 hours, 36 minutes. Here's the cover art:

I think it's well worth the price, although only squeezed on to 2 discs. I wonder if there will be any sort of special features to be included in the package!

Is this the one where they follow WN mainly? Does anyone know if this series is shown in the UK?

Yes, I do believe this is the one where they follow WN around. I don't if the UK version is coming out, as I don't know too much about it.

Finally it's out on DVD. I was waiting for this anyway but it is finally here. Hope to see the UK version here too.

I don't know how many times I can watch a drunk passenger get denied boarding, it seems that is all that happens in this show. I love it, though, so I will probably end up getting the DVD.

I never really got into the UK version. I could never understand what they were saying.  Smile

The UK Easyjet version is much better than the US Southwest version b/c
the UK version delves more into behind the scenes like a segment where
Stelios is picking up a new 73G from BFI versus the endless parade of
pax behaving badly on the WN version.
