Default "Airline", Newest Reality Show TONIGHT!!!

ALERT ALERT ALERT

"Airline": Southwest's reality show is on tonight at 10pm eastern time on
A&E.

I am surprised that no one mention it earlier. I was out country until
today.

Well it would be nice if it was kind of like an episode of COPS. Where
everyweek they would focus on a different airline and different city.
But a hidden camera would capture more of the unrehearsed reactions of some
of the passengers that I deal with.

I'm really not interested unless they show the pilots boning the flight
attendants. Let's get the real reality show!

Yeah I guess that's the first reality show I'm actually interested in
watching. I read that none of it was staged. They just spent six month with
camera crews at LAX and Chicago Midway showing up unannounced at the gates
and filming until something interesting happened. Of course, I'm sure the
editing job might make it cheesy, but I'll at least give it a try. (Assuming
my future father-in-law doesn't delete the episodes off the Tivo... I don't
have cable here at my house, gotta rely on him to record & keep them.)

I find myself liking Southwest just for being willing to do this kind of
thing. None of the other airlines would agree to it.

They've been doing it with EasyJet and various airports in the UK for about
5 years. It's mildly entertaining, but not overly so. They follow the
trials and tribulations of a few airline staff as they go about their
business. One guy became a minor Z-list celb out of it and now does
commercials and travel shows. Most of it is what you'd expect - ****ed off
passengers shouting at the customer service agents. Not exactly gruelling
TV. I'm assuming this is going to be the same. But I suppose it does give
an insider view of the airline industry that most people don't see.

Enjoy.

Against my better judgment I stayed up and watched it. It was OK in places,
but the constant moving around of the camera was annoying, to say the least.
What I don't understand is it looks like the passengers are aware of the
camera, yet they still act like that and even consent to it being shown on
national TV. I didn't think it was all that interesting. But then, I rarely
watch TV at all, let alone 'reality' shows. I prefer movies.

But from what I understand, now several of the airlines have approached the
show producers about filming at their airlines...

How do you know that won't happen? Using the "cockpit cam" I'll bet
we see a bunch of good stuff!
