Last week was the premier for a new program from The Travel Channel: Airport 24/7 Miami. It’s a behind the scenes look at Miami International Airport.
This isn’t just any reality TV show. The producer is Chris Sloan, the aviation enthusiast behind the Airchive (probably the largest collection of timetables, route maps, and other aviation memorabilia available online), so it’s the kind of show that you’d expect from a “real” airplane aficionado.
It doesn’t focus on American, or any one airline or group of people, and it’s not a “this is how an airport works” kind of series either. It’s more like a day in the life of MIA.
Here’s a look at promo.
It’s a fascinating show and has all the elements of great television: drama, humor, crime, happy endings, even geeky stuff like airplanes getting parking tickets.
You might not earn any AAdvantage Miles, but it’s definitely worth watching.
It airs tonight and every Tuesday on the Travel Channel at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
