Come fly with me....Southwest Airlines is giving travelers an inside look at its operations with its new reality TV show, On the Fly, which debuts on Thursday.
The show, which will air on TLC at 8 p.m. CDT, will feature the Dallas-based carrier's employees going through the daily operations of a major airline. The thirteen-episode series will run every Thursday and was shot in airports across the country, including Houston Hobby and Austin's airport.
"Each episode will bring viewers along for the ride, sharing the large-scale operations at the airline, as well as personal customer stories, ranging from a surprise proposal mid-flight and a delayed dance troupe’s impromptu performance to the havoc caused by weather delays and the repercussions of a baggage belt breakdown. In this series, it’s not about the destination, but the journey to get there," the press material for the show says.
This is the second time that Southwest has shot a reality TV show. It's first foray in the mid-2000s, lasted for three seasons and was called "Airline".
Here's a quick peek that TLC posted on the website, promoting the show.
