Just when you hoped reality TV had had its day, enter CelebAir

If you’re not sick to death as I am of TV programmes showing washed-up C-list celebrities trying to resurrect their careers by chowing down on insects in the rainforest or flailing about on ice skates, UK TV station ITV2 is reportedly planning to launch a new airline-based celebrity reality show called CelebAir.

ITV is said to be close to signing a deal with UK carrier Monarch Airlines to lease an aircraft for the show. The idea is that 12 famous people (or more likely 12 people who were famous for 10 minutes, 10 years ago) will be trained up as cabin crew to fly passengers to Ibiza.

UK tabloid The Sun has put together some amusing photos to show what it thinks the crew of CelebAir will look like.

The show is expected to be launched this autumn, for those of you who are interested. I plan to be washing my hair.

    Cabin Crew are safety professionals who receive several months intensive training to qualify. Will these celebrities be fully trained and then rostered as crew or just trained to serve the food – i.e. nothing more than airborne waiters?

    Whether trained or not, the actual status of the participating celebrities must be emphasised to the audience. I’m a maintenance engineer myself, but I think there’s nothing to be gained from having the cabin crew’s function trivialised. There must be no dilution of the professionalism of our Flight Attendants, whose primary responsibility is cabin safety.

    Gutes Thema. Bin aber nicht ganz deiner Meinung, aber das ist ja auch kein Diskussionsforum hier. Bleibt am Ball.
