“Heathrow” Series 5 starts tonight (21 May)

Yes, your favourite airport is back on the small/medium/large screen tonight. ITV at 20:30.

Marvel at how people manage to drive around the airfield, gasp at the skills of ATC and groan at the antics of Border Force.

OK, not exclusively BA ... other airlines also exist.

We will surely see birds being scared away by a taped bird distress sound, the Bangladesh flights and the bonkers baggage allowance, a cute or venomous animal awaiting transportation and fire crews in training...

Don’t forget the passenger who’s had too much to drink and the helpful smiley customer service agents.

Not to mention the heartwarming story of the apprentice who starts off totally clueless, and by the end of the series is able to independently change a lightbulb without killing anyone!

Or the story of a traveller who doesn't have a visa for his transit country, but Sue saves the day yet again!

I wonder if the chap in T5 will be continuing his quest for record numbers of Golden Tickets?

Don't forget the cycling paramedic or the inevitable mysterious leak/smell/noise that requires several people to stare at the ceiling looking confused.

I live in hope of seeing the DYKWIA being denied lounge access/sent back to await his Group 5 boarding call/forced to check in 4 of his 5 items of hand baggage......

And don't forget the scene where a baggage belt fails and check in comes to a halt

Not the same without John Nettles aka Bergerac narrating

I am liking the EasyJet: Inside the Cockpit documentary. If only BA would participate in something like that

Deltus,
But at least it was only one person changing the light bulb. In SFO it takes 26.

1 to change the light bulb and 25 to share the experience.

I know, I know.............

Yes... but will there be anything about a lost cuddly toy, a forgotten sick bag in a back pocket, a Stradivarius cello, nut-less flights, riff-raff in a Flounge and all the topics that *really* interest us?
