    A&E
    Airline is a reality television series featured on the A&E network. The show attempts to document the lives of airline staff, ground workers, and passengers of Southwest Airlines. Airline was originally focused in the United States, but after some time, A&E also featured some British episodes which they called Airline UK. What makes this show unique is that it follows these passengers and employees outside the realms of the airport, thereby allowing the viewer to get a holistic sense of who these people are. For example, the show follows one airline employee as he attends his high school reunion, another veteran pilot as he takes his last flight before retiring, and another employee, Gina, as she trains to become a flight attendant. Most scenes are shot in Los Angeles International Airport, Chicago Midway, Baltimore-Washington International, as well as the Hobby Airport of Houston, Texas. Watch this show if you have ever wondered what it might be like to fly for a living!moreless
