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.

Can't say how much I love this series, long trips or rain days, the perfect listen every time!
I laugh, chortle, and snort every time I listen. It never gets old. I can't wait for my next credit - I'm buying them all RIGHT NOW!
BRAVO BBC ! Another smash hit.
Cabin Pressure is really what made me fall in love with radio dramas. I've never been one for audio recordings of stories, but this has fully converted me. Give it a go. I swear you won't regret it. Just beware listening to it in public; you may receive strange glances from strangers when you can't hold back your laughter.
Well-written, clever situation comedy about life in a charter airline. When it delves into the power differences between the characters, it gets funnier. Enjoyable and well-crafted.
Sci-fi, the always goto genre when it comes to books and audio books.
funny clever show that brings enjoyment to the listener. This series is much better than the 1st series.
"extremely funny - John finnemore is ... brilliant "
Roger Allam's dilevery is by far the best thing about this in my opinion, made to play the character. Obviously the rest of the cast ties the show together... would highly recommend
"Loved it when it was on the BBC."
Brilliant cast and fantastically written. Makes me laugh every time I hear it. Hilariously funny.
I love these - each one better and funnier than the last. As Arthur would say -"Brilliant!
Love every episode of Cabin Pressure. As Arthur would say... Its brilliant!
Very well written, very well performed.
Characters are fantastic.
Makes me laugh every time. Characters are great and the games the pilots play are hilarious.
"Fabulous flying fun"
I loved this and will get the rest of the available series. Was a little perturbed at first because I detest flying, but this is a wonderful look at a rather run down air charter company, and the characters so very funny.
"Clever, funny and compulsive!"
Superb cast ( unfaultable) with clever and witty scripts. Bonus feature new car games. Don't miss this.
"Best comedy radio show ever!"
Superbly acted, with a witty script which makes you laugh out loud. "Brilliant", as Arthur would say.
great stories from beginning to end....I love to listen to them after a busy demanding day....and it all washes over me...great
I love this SO much reminds me of the long car journeys where I used to listen to this , crying with laughter all the way
