Monarch Airlines Give Flying a Huge Dose of Reality TV

Posted July 17, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Monarch_airlines Fancy having Peter Andre as your pilot? Or what about Jordan ‘call me Katie’ Price as your flight attendant? Well, reality TV fans, this could be your day!

Airlines always aim to please, and this time, Monarch Airlines have gone one step further by inaugurating CelebAir, with 10 ‘celebrities’ being trained to do various jobs. Sounding like a mixture of Airline and Celebrity Big Brother, the as-yet-unnamed celebs will be put through their paces then voted out weekly.

A spokesman for ITV2, which will be screening the series, calls it ‘a huge reality event’ (presumably because flying in a celeb-less plane isn’t real enough). The channel also promises ‘a real plane, with real passengers with real holidays to go on’ but wisely decides not to mention the fact that the celebrities might be real C-list celebrities.

A huge pat on the back for Monarch though, for attempting to retrain celebrities with marketable skills to fall back on should that singing/football/page-three-girl career fail.
