The BBC has finally released the transmission dates for ‘A Very British Airline’, a three part fly on the wall series on British Airways.
It will be broadcast on June 2, June 9 and June 16 at 9pm on BBC2.
Filmed over 10 months, it covers various ‘stories’ including the launch of the first A380 flights, the preparations for the Chengdu route (which I am told is a commercial disaster, attracting under 50 passengers at times – and on a 787!) and the BA response to a bout of severe weather at JFK.
I was approached by Lion TV last year about this series as they wanted to slot in a series of ‘talking head’ pieces from passengers and industry observers. I put some people I know forward for filming – it will be interesting to see if they make the final cut!
