Whether it is good or bad publicity, one thing is for sure, easyJet is now a household name, thanks to this programme.

Still, have to agree with wtpurser that 'Airport' is done much better. 'Airline' makes us look like we have alot of 'fresh out of college' employees that really have no experience in dealing with Joe Public.

Maybe we should switch to BBC???!!%^

Any organisation that allows a 'fly on the wall' team in to fill them has to balance the
attendant publicity with the 'freedom' of the
director to show warts and all. The list of
disasters is a long one - RAF, BA, Trouble-
shooter etc. On the other hand there have been some good ones - Para, Sailor and so on.

Easyjet (Stelios) have made a clear and judged decision to take the plunge and have
seen their profile raised on ITV. They did
not choose to look at pilots for the majority
of the time because we tend to come over as
boring clones - ask the cabin staff ! Much
better TV to focus on angry passengers and
check-in desk personnel who have taken some
form of American 'people management course'.
The less said about that dispatcher at Liverpool the better.

Now Monarch are to take the plunge - will it
be the same; angry punters, pilots waxing
lyrical about another sunrise northbound
from Greece or Turkey, cabin staff being
verbally abused and the aircraft being trashed by the customers ?
Hopefully the director will be able to come up with a new slant but I won't hold my
breath on that one.

Airline was'nt a patch on Airport from the
'trade' point of view because the latter focused on a wide range of airline operations
as opposed to a few individuals. There is
a little bit too much from the animal handler
and it would be nice to see a little more of
the aircraft but as I said before the whole
programme is intended for punters and not for
those who take part in a forum such as Prune.

Good luck Monarch - but remember whose bright
idea it was if it all turns to tears !

hey Orangewing.

I think you are right in assuming sectorbabe is a jock and a dyed blonde too!!!

As regards filming, hundreds of flights go on schedule without any problems but that would'nt be "good telly" now would it?

er, hello? Did I not JUST say that I am from the southwest?? I do mean England as well, just in case you chuck that back at me!! You really should start paying more attention!

Will be extremely insulted if you think I am a dyed blond scot, who has been saving the world over in Fiji or somewhere!! (Old crew at ezy will know who I mean!)

You guys have really got the wrong end of the stick! Can not stop laughing, thinking about your faces when you do find out who I am!! Keep guessing, as honestly, you are nowhere near!!(would tell you if you are!)

Re: airline, maybe if we starting filming alpha presenting the crew with their crew food, we would get more sympathy from the public and possibly food donations...Just a thought..

sectorbabe, I hav'nt seen a size 10 in the crewroom so if you can fib about your size, fibbing about your origin will hardly touch your conscience. Now , would you like to be known as "jock" or "blondie"?

Cool

Eezypilot - neither thanks. Look in the smoking room, you will find myself, along with many other size 10s!
Could really give you a huge clue to my identity, especially if you have been at ezy for a while, but then that wouldn't be any fun!
No reason to fib about my origin - am loud and proud of my country accent!!

By the way, if you can't see any size 10s in the crew room, should you really be at easyjet as you obviously have very poor eyesight??!!!

Goforfun,could not agree more,the service IS c**p,and the hosties could do with learning a manner or two,but you get what you pay for???
Sectorbabe,I don't wish hijack a good thread and risk closing the topic by getting involved in a personal slanging match,so I suggest you pay the Jetblast forum a quick visit!

To all of you Easyjet guys.

Let the morons take this p$%S and throw all the sticks and stones they want about service meals et al.

Here at Southwest Airlines we get the same kind of stuff until people realize that with the $600 they saved on their ticket they can rent a Limo to take themselves and their girlfriend out to the nicest resturant in town and still have enough change to buy a bunch of flowers for their wife. Oh and by the way with our on time performance and 20 minute turns they will still be home on time.

It's all down to doing business and giving the Customers what they really want, that is why we posted 1st quarter profits of $121m closely followed by Continental with $9m (yes that is $9m) who were incidentally the only other one in the black. Delta American United all were $000m's in the red. We can't even spell furlo, ferlough, furlow #$%&*(! ugh!

Keep it up.

Despite the fact that LWT portays EZY in a bad light at times, Monarch agreed to be filmed based on the fact that seat sales appear to have gone through the roof at EZY since filming began. Apparently the statisticians have shown that 85% of people only remember the name of the airline and the good things they see. With spotty M needing to increase their public profile due to Crown Service scheduled flights, it seems to make good business sense. The cringe factor will no doubt be as high as ever though, as they (LWT) tend to concentrate on the negative and ignore the positive.
