Guys, I have just read in the easyJet brochure that Inside the Cockpit will be returning for season 2 soon.

I am guessing this time easyJet will have control over the final edits so they will not pull any episodes from broadcast.

Also Ryan Clyde left easyjet for BA a while back.

Yes and the article states that the focus of season two will be on more female pilots.

easyJet is really struggling at the moment with FOs as many have transferred to the white, blue and red side.

Today's episode was certainly a lot better than the previous unprofessional garbage we saw last year.

Shame about the added sound fx during the turbulence scene... but I guess without it, the everyday folk would probably find it all boring!

Also, it would be nice to see EZY in the documentary pushing other training routes, rather than it just being a big advert for L3/CTC, especially given that they are now using Instagram adverts to "inspire?" new cadets!!

There was a good example in tonight's episode of the consequences of not reading back a taxy instruction. Followed by an example of 'cockpit gradient', when the FO, who had listened more carefully to ATC, was reticent to correct her Captain. And with the aircraft having just landed at Amsterdam, it was amusing to see Gatwick's old and new control towers in the background. Overall an enjoyable programme.

I realise there was a lot of ‘camping up’ for the cameras, but do flight crew really help clean the cabin on turnarounds, and Captains constantly stand up out in the cabin making PA’s and chatting to pax?

Some Captains do help cleaning the cabin. Given short turn times it is a chance to catch up with the crew. As for PA's from front of cabin. Well the company encourage it but l personally don't do it.

I as well would not get hands on with a sick passenger. The crew are better trained to deal with that and l have better things to be doing, such as updating flightplans and coordinating requirements with ops etc.

That said each to their own. I thought the Captain came across well.

More professional than previous series although Cabin Crew should give flight deck lessons on how to wear their hair!!

I think they were just trying to make up for a major delay and I have been on quite a few EJ flights where the captain has come out to chat - or at least stood at the cockpit door to say goodbye on exit.

Tonight's episode allowed Stephen Fry to demonstrate how he absolutely knows 110% of everything (Unlike we plebs!).
While explaining what was going on with a flight preparing to leave Bari, he gave us this gem: "Meanwhile, 230 miles away in Gatwick.."
Really?

The commentary was cringe-worthy throughout! And patronizing.

The atmosphere in the cabin was very relaxed, especially for the FO s first take off in a 321, or was that the first with pax? Personally thought it was too relaxed.

I think your observation may be valid.
The reason I think it might be so, is because there have likely been few, if any, real scares in their flying lives thus far.

Steven Fry - "like all aircraft,it can't reverse". I thought that was the party-trick for the Viggen at Farnborough,and the Hercules does a pretty good job too !

I've seen IL-62s reverse off stand once or twice and I believe it wasn't entirely unknown with the 727?

It's just an hour of low rent, low cognitive load TV. Didn't teach Joe Public anything but thats not the point of it. A bit like that airport programme years ago with the camp ramp agent guy (worked for Aeroflot I think?)
Not a programme I'd personally make plans to watch, but I think the airline and its crew came over quite well though in last nights episode, the only one I've seen. An hour long advert for Easy I think.
