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.

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 go to 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.
John Finnemore is, as Arthur would say "Brilliant!"
The entire cast pull this off perfectly, even on repeat listens I still find myself chuckling!
"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
This is an enjoyable comedy, the writing is good, but the pleasure is also in timing and performance of the actors.
I do not have a favourite character. The chemistry between the characters is entertaining and how they compliment each other, it would not work without any of them.
"Best radio comedy I have heard.."
I have listened to this and all of the series of Cabin Pressure many times, and cannot recommend it enough - it is simply brilliant.
Superb characters captured with skill, spot on timing and a witty script. A comedy classic!
In the words of Arthur, Brilliant! The funniest radio show by the king of comedy.
Funny, clever & beautifully played by the actors
I loved the episode where they drove the plane down the road
The first officer always turns in a great performance- & has a lovely voice.
