Fasten your seat belt, secure your tray table and put your chair in the upright position as Ready For Take-Off goes behind the scenes of the worldGÇÖs most trusted airline GÇô Qantas. The eight-part documentary series goes where no TV show has gone before GÇô behind the restricted lines of the airport terminal, onto the tarmac, and into the nerve centre of the whole global operation. Every year Qantas transports over 50 million passengers, from locations as diverse as Kununurra in the Australian Outback to LondonGÇÖs bustling Heathrow, with a workforce of 30,000 to ensure they have a smooth trip. The series follows the dedicated staff at the heart of Qantas who work around the clock and behind the scenes to keep the carrier in the air: pilots, cabin crew, engineers, trainers, caterers, ground staff and customer service managers. Ready For Take-Off is told through their eyes, with viewers getting a front-row seat in areas normally off-limits for one of the worldGÇÖs great airlines.
