Run by the forbidding divorcée Carolyn Knapp-Shappey (an unfortunate marriage, namewise, but in Carolyn's opinion, marginally better than Carolyn Shappey-Knapp), her two pilots are the smooth, experienced, and almost-certainly-fired-by-a-big-airline-for-all-around naughtiness Douglas, and struggling, almost competent Martin. All-round help is provided by Carolyn's near-idiot son, Arthur.

A really funny and terrific series! When is number 3 coming out? Laugh out loud silliness. The performers are wonderful and the writing is great. I want more!
"Best R4 comedy in years"
Beautifully written and acted with thoughtfully constructed plots. It couldn't be done with anyone other than Roger Allam (his voice is perfect). The storylines are always convoluted and clever and it even makes my husband laugh out loud and he is someone who's not fond the spoken audio word.
Roll on the next series.
"Plenty of laughs"
Cabin Pressure is fantastic! Even if you're not interested in aviation, it's a great sitcom about a group of people who are stuck with working together. If you are interested in aviation, it's even funnier. Series 1 is (I think) the funniest, but you'll still laugh out loud!
Many’s the time I’ve been walking to work listening to this and got odd looks, because no matter how hard I try I just can’t help but laugh out loud. Cabin Pressure is one of the best Radio 4 comedies I’ve come across. If you’ve never listened to it then it’s good to start at series 1 as you’ll get more of the jokes, but even if you just picked up here at series 2 you would still be laughing yourself silly within a few minutes of pressing play, I guarantee it.
"Excellent comedy with laughs and rye smiles"
This is the second series of a superb UK radio comedy series. Based on an air dot ('to have an airline you need more than one plane!') the crew strive to make money using Gertie often spending time entertaining themselves and sometimes at the expense of their customers. The Faulty Towers of the air?
This features a fantastic cast, one-liners to die for, it is simply the best comedy to have been on Radio 4 for years. My advice, buy it now!
"Please buy this!"
This series has brought my family so much fun and laughter! I relisten to it often when I need a bit of cheering up and it doesn't fail to deliver. If you are dithering over whether or not to buy this then please just do yourself a favour and go for it!
"Season 2 builds on Season 1"
Those who loved season 1 of Cabin Pressure will love seasone 2. Just as funny, with characters that are just as real as in season 1.
What a great show! John Finnemore is an absolute genius, and he keeps you involved throughout. From the small 'plays' to the larger stories - amazingly funny. I adore the in-flight games!
"Another Winner from John Finnimore!"
This 2nd series is as excellent as the first. Lots of laughs from a team of superb actors with perfectly tuned voices and impeccable timing! John Finnimore's dialogues are witty and clever with seemingly throw-away remarks inevitably returning with hillarious, twisted consequences. The theme of a different destination in each episode is just, as Arthur would say, BRILLIANT! Can't wait to buy 3rd series!
"2nd series - second best."
Not quite as slick as the first series, some of the humour was slightly laboured, but still worth a listen.
