Publisher's Summary

The complete finale of the hit BBC Radio 4 sitcom- 2 episodes.
Cabin Pressure is set in the wing and prayer world of a tiny, one-plane airline, staffed by two pilots, one on his way down, and one who was never up to start with. In this, the finale of the whole series, we discover that for MJN Air, whether it's choosing an ice-cream flavour, putting a princess in a van or remembering your grandmother's name, no job is too small, but, many, many jobs are too difficult.
Carolyn Knapp-Shappey, MJN Air's formidable boss, has employed two of the very cheapest pilots money can buy. Captain Martin Crieff, who's always wanted to fly and won't let a little thing like lack of ability stop him, and First Officer Douglas Richardson, smooth-voiced old sky-god and eternal schemer. Passenger service is provided by the relentlessly cheerful Arthur, proud inventor of both Surprising Rice and his own hat.

Best comedy series of all time!
Touching and hilarious, wish it never ended. Once you start it you won't be able to stop till you've heard them all.

I was so excited to see this final episode arrive on Audible, I quickly downloaded and listened to it...and I was not disappointed. This episode is an hour long; the first part sets up the scenario (and, to be fair, it's a little long and sometimes confusing), but without it, the payoff in the second half would not occur! It's a great episode and completes the series in a satisfactory and extremely funny and appropriate way.

I don't know what I will do without the crew of MJN Air...they have entertained me for hours on my commute and I will miss them terribly.
