    Whilst the general viewing population will enjoy this show, it will take me out of my viewing enjoyment every time I see the BA F seat portrayed as the First cabin, whilst the Business cabin uses what looks like Thompson Aero Vantage – meaning all credibility is lost for me!

    And I’m an intense single man with too much time on my hands. What’s your point?

    There are other things in the world to worry about is my point.

    Ted Lasso used an ex BA plane – I’m guessing one of the 747s – as the set of a fictitious transatlantic airline. The old CW seating was de-densified. Seats probably removed to allow more space for filming.

    You could tell the airline wasn’t really BA though. The plane was clean.

    You’re in for a treat. In my opinion ATV shows are head and shoulders above the competition. A few others to look at (with some tenuous links to air travel): Slow Horses (a few light aircraft in the second series), Tehran (she starts out as an air stewardess) and Greyhound (yeah that’s just subs and boats).

    You’ve reminded me that The Flight Attendant season 1 also pulled this trick. It might be a rentable set.

    They also somehow magically removed some of the seats between shots in the finale. Terrible continuity. And what was with that layout??

    I’ve started watching it and the layout is really winding me up! Also there’s a few shots on the ground when they’re moving, the views don’t match up to reality

    This will really bother me. Oh, what pleasure ut must be to have a personal life busy enough to not obsess over such trivial matters!

    Obsess is a bit strong! There’s also some highly questionable ATC practices and a fair few creative liberties taken!
