Kicked Off The Plane

November 20, 2011 by staff 

Kicked Off The Plane, Cable network TLC has ordered 13 episodes of a reality TV series that will take viewers behind the scenes of Southwest Airlines. According to an exclusive report in The Wrap, the show is “focused on the trials and tribulations of a modern American airline company.”

Though the airline is Dallas-based, the big D’s film commissioner Janis Burklund says there’s no word yet on whether any episode will be shot there. Or anywhere else in Texas, for that matter.

What we do know is that production is to begin this weekend at Baltimore and Denver airports. If they haven’t talked to Burklund yet, that’s not a promising sign for Dallas; she’s the one who has to make the locations happen.

Show us some love, TLC! We’ve got airports out the kazoo and well, Texas is Southwest’s HOME. Now that’s reality.

Remember the Pace Picante Sauce commercial with the angry cowboys who found out one brand was, “Made in New York City!” and commenced to, “Get a rope!” because of it?

That will be the feeling if Dallas is left out of this series.

It’s also kind of weird — and a little suspicious — that this series is even getting off the ground, if you’ll forgive the pun. After all, there was a 2004-2005 reality series on A&E that sounds exactly like the new one. That network’s Airline showcased Southwest, too. It didn’t last very long, and I never watched it. Did you? Did you even know it was airing?

    i watched all the time and loved it. the sw employees handled some really tough situations and remained professional and as helpful as they could possibly be to passengers who were drunk and obnoxious. I learned alot from the show, like not even to act like you’ve had a few, before boarding otherwise they will stop you from boarding until they deem you no risk or able to deplane in an emergency alright. there’s a lot of reasons behind what actions are taken, and none that I’d ever given much thought about, but reading survival books, every – customer deemed ‘extreme’ action is with good cause and thinking ahead on the side of the airlines.
