Airport-themed TV series: Come Fly with Me

Air travel is funny, right?

Well, that’s the premise of Come Fly With Me, a new British series about “Britain’s busiest airport and the people who work in and pass through it every day,” that kicks off on BBC America Saturday at 11:30 p.m as part of a block of comedy programs.

“Among the characters are Omar, the owner of Flylo airlines, Britain’s eighth favorite low cost airline; Precious Little, the world’s laziest coffee kiosk lady who always seems to close early and Melody and Keely, Flylo’s check-in girls who are severely lacking in customer services skills.”

In ths show, Matt Lucas and David Walliams, who had a previous hit with a series called Little Britain, play most all the characters.

From the previews it looks very silly, but spot on in terms of the situations travelers encounter every day.
