With new security measures and increased restrictions added to the air travel experience seemingly on a weekly basis, the concept of ‘flying the friendly skies’ is fading further and further away from reality. Still, if the hullabaloo surrounding flying is a series of inconveniences for the passenger, it stands to reason that dealing with disgruntled travelers is no Sunday in the park either. This series from Australia’s Seven Network chronicles the launch of the budget airline Tiger Airways, capturing customer meltdowns, stressed staff and the odd bit of airborne unpredictability, such as an in-flight wedding. You’ve heard of ‘fly on the wall’ entertainment – consider this ‘fly on the wing’ factual.
