These classic ‘Airline’ clips of furious people missing their flights are truly hilarious
And one classic show that captured the pain of airline travel better than any other was ITV’s Airline, which ran from 1998 to 2007. This gem of a show followed the daily highs and lows of everyone who worked in and passed through an airport. Like the finest operatic performance, Airline had soaring joy, crushing tragedy and, most importantly, stunningly beautiful hissy fits of passengers losing their minds when they were told they’d missed their flights.
The clips were uploaded to Twitter by @tomwaIker and have sparked euphoric waves of nostalgia and schadenfreude in our office.
Now sit back, relax and enjoy this Airline feature presentation:
