Plot Synopsis

LITTLE BRITAIN's Matt Lucas and David Walliams play over 50 characters in this mockumentary set in Britain's busiest air terminal, home to FlyLo Airlines, Great British Air and Our Lady Air. At FlyLo Airlines, the country's eighth favorite low-cost airline: pilot Simon and co-pilot Jackie are Britain's first husband and wife flying team; owner Omar wants his company to become carbon-neutral and he contends the frequent news stories about poor service and dangerous conditions are down to a biased and unfair media; Taaj Manzoor is part of the ground crew but has bigger aspirations; and check-in girls Keeley and Melody treat big and small problems the same way, which is that they are ignored. For Great British Air, the country's most prestigious airline: Penny Carter is the snobby guardian of the First Class cabin; and Moses Beacon is the executive passenger liaison officer who is in charge of taking care of first class and VIP passengers. At Our Lady Air, a low-cost Irish airline: Fearghal is a cabin attendant who is trying to win the Golden Trolley for the steward of the year and his large family all work with him. Inside the terminal, a group of hapless people work with airline personnel to keep passengers and VIPs going through the gates, and they include: Ian Foot, the airport's Chief Immigration Officer who tries to stop undesirables from entering the UK; Tommy Reed, who works at the airport Happy Burger but has dreams of being a pilot; Precious Little, the world's laziest coffee kiosk lady who always seems to close early; and in-house press photographers Mickey and Buster. Guest stars include: David Schwimmer and Rupert Grint. BBC America aired the U.S. premiere of the series on Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 11:30pm ET.
