Behind the scenes with one of the world’s most famous airlines
From the men and women who maintain the planes to the people who buy them and from those who fly the fleet to the people whose job it is the please the passengers, this access-all-areas series takes a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at Britain’s multi-billion-pound, flag carrier airline.
In the second series, we follow pilots undertaking training on flight simulators, ahead of flying the new Airbus A350 for the first time and we go inside the maintenance centre in Cardiff where a plane is being upgraded with Wi-Fi that works in the sky. We also track overnight ops teams investigating technical faults on two short-haul aircraft and watch as Heathrow ground team dispatch manager, Sally-Anne, is left in a rush to get a plane ready for its departure to Tokyo following its late arrival from Delhi.
