Thank goodness Audible has all 4 seasons of this BBC radio show (plus the Christmas Special!) available. I haven't yet met my son's girlfriend, but since she was the one to recommend Cabin Pressure to him, and he in turn told me I had to listen to it, I like her already! As far as I'm concerned, John Finnemore is a creative genius. His writing and the acting of all four characters is perfect and perfectly funny, across all four seasons. Some details about the characters are revealed as the seasons progress, adding depth to the extraordinary comedy. I've listened to all the episodes of Cabin Pressure multiple times and they never get old. I anxiously await Season 5!

Buy this audiobook. Buy it now. Buy it fast. You'll laugh until you're sore in the stomach listening to the adventures of MJN air, Britain's least competent but most endearing airline. This is British radio humour at its very best, and it has Benedict Cumberbatch in the cast (as Captain Martin Crieff)! The entire series is excellent, so don't stop here, but the second and third series and the Christmas special too - there's not a dud episode among them. I cannot wait for more episodes so come, and have listened to these ones many time and they just keep staying funny.
Brilliantly timed comedy, well written and well played. Clean humor as well, which is always appreciated.
The funniest, sweetest play ever put on radio. I can listen to it again and again. The characters, the performances and the silly word games are just a part of its loveliness.
I've been on a BBC series kick lately and rank Cabin Pressure first of all I've heard. My favorite character is Arthur, but each has grown on me in their own ways -- even Douglas. My only wish would be that there were more episodes per series. But unless the BBC fairy grants that one, I'll re-listen to the four series available. Highly reccommend.
An adorable romp full of dry British humor, verbal prat falls and tons of fun! Definitely worth the listen. Acting was excellent and constantly brought the story to life.

The show is hilarious and very well put together. After only 8 minutes of ep 1 I was hooked. I can't wait to listen to the other 3 series.
Comedic timing and chemistry were great. Some jokes were really simple and silly, a few were more clever. Plenty of ridiculous situations and schemes. It was almost like a good comedy tv show, just with audio only! Harkened back to ye not-so-old days of radio sitcoms. Some of it was patently British style humor, some was more general. I loved it all! And best of all, I can't think of anything else I've listened to quite like it.
Lots of fun and laughs, the whole way through! Each episode brought on a new crazy adventure. And the cast was fantastic. Really brightened my afternoon!
Laugh out loud, tickle my funny bone silliness. A charter plane flys into high turbulence of comedy. I love it when the owner of MJN Air tells the pilot he is not an airline pilot because you can't put one plane into a line. This is a terrific series and I hope they'll be more!
Hilarious, non-stop laughs.
The actors are simply fabulous at delivering the lines and their timing is perfect.
Divided into 30 minute episodes, it is the perfect length for the morning commute.
