    A certain airline in Europe are currently showing this programme in their executive lounge

    Apparently their passengers aks for it – I wonder if these people also asked to pay for F&B – it makes as much sense.

    Sweet 😉

    Ha ha, this has brightened my day 😉 now to the question of which lounge… is it in a German airport?

    Never mind the airport, which airline is it?

    I flew Sabena once and they showed one of the aircraft disaster films! They also had no alcohol on board to soothe your troubled nerves if you happened to watch it!

    Ditto LP, I recall that Air Canada showed the blockbuster Airport 75 on its 747’s from YYZ to YVR. Synopsis of the film…… jumbo gets into trouble, and struggles to navigate the Rockies. The same pesky mountain range that those passengers would fly over as they leave Alberta and enter BC!
    Best of all, back in day, the story unfolded in front of the whole cabin in full dramatic cinematic vision….priceless : )

    I wonder why passengers ask for it – must be to get a bit of an exhilaration feeling before boarding a place? or to maybe see other people’s reactions in the lounge?

    Apparently, there was a slight misunderstanding – the passengers ask for the channel, not the programme.

    After the end of the Air Crash Investigation programme, there was a very interesting show that seemed to be comparing different sub machine guns.

    Airport has 8 letters, B_ _ _ _ A _ _

    Ah right, so they were actually looking for cute animals. I wonder what other channels are requested in lounges with the sound off (generally) apart from news.

    On an aircon bus in Asia awhile ago showing one of those runaway bus movies and the movie bus did a dramatic sharp turn at the same time the real bus did, to gasps from all those involved in the movie! Woke me up too!

    Spot on Peter – not sure about the furry animals, though, the sub machine programme had a keen audience 🙂

    A year ago Aeroflot not only showed an aircraft disaster movie but also promoted it in the inflight magazine and on the website front page. The reason was that Aeroflot was either somehow involved in that movie (Ekipazh – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5653294) production or sponsored it.
    That promotion caused… well, mixed reaction in social media.

    Where is the time that all airlines, except one, would show only an edited version of the movie Rain man, featuring Dustin Hoffman as an autistic man. I’m sure the more senior members of this forum will remember.

    Remember the scene well…..
    Without Dustin Hoffman’s characters knowledge of aviation fatalities the film would have concluded at the airport. And to this day Rain Man would still end at that point in the movie ….. so pigs and kangaroos definitely spring to mind ,so to speak.

    That was the one Canucklad. I’d forgotten the title. From memory we were in a DC10 so at least not a 747!

    I wonder if any airline will show “Sully”?
