I haven't watched it since the first couple of episodes, but my collegues and I have had a good laugh about some of the themes and the general portrayal of our jobs!
10am reports for a single sector UK to Alicante and a 24 hour layover in a beach hotel with cabin crew so wealthy they can afford to hire convertible cars and buy enough alcohol to get totally wrecked by 2 hours before departure! Sex, booze and drugs, quick 2 hour sector home the next afternoon followed by a week off...
In the end we all agreed that we wished our jobs were actually that much fun.
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

There are shots of a 737 landing ,taking off and in flight ,in "Fresh " colours.White fuselage with the name fresh in turquoise on the forward fuselage,fin in turquoise with a red f on it. Shots of the aircraft on the ground at Stansted have been used that show the aircraft behind a heat haze, no way could those shots be faked and still look realistic.
Mind you that Emma isn't bad either!

Rick, you just about summed it up ... but i think it's great, if only the job was like that im sure you lot would all be happy
It's also funny to see a 767 rolling for take-off and then a 737 climbing away
