A new BBC series is expected to explore what goes on behind the scenes at an airline, documenting all the drama of passengers and crew including some of the romantic goings on and tiffs happening a mile high.
It follows the young staff and crew of Scottish airline Loganair as they lift the lid on what a career high in the clouds is all about. It’s an aspirational series that will show that there is more to the job than just flying passengers from A to B.
A teaser says that the show “will take the audience on a journey across Scotland and beyond with the access-all-areas observational series looking under the wings and inside the lives of those working for a busy airline.”
“’Flight Club’ will have everything – gorgeous crew, handsome pilots and a little travel inspo to inspire some wanderlust.” – a source told The Sun.
“But it’s the office romances at 35,000 feet, flirty passengers and bitching that really make it.”
“We’ve all heard stories about the partying lifestyles of cabin crew so expect lots of that.”
“Flight Club will show the real world of aviation, not just groaning passengers who have missed their flights.”
The show was filmed during the summer at regional carrier Loganair’s headquarters in Glasgow.
In previous years, aviation shows have focused on the more mundane work at the airport, with a look at difficult passengers and catching smugglers at customs.
BBC previously aired ‘Airport’, a series that ran for 10 years from 1996 to 2006.
The documentary show was based at London Heathrow Airport and followed the lives of passengers and crew.
Flight Club is expected to air on BBC THREE at some point over the winter months.
