A&E Rebooks Airline for Third Season


Airline will fly on A&E Network’s airwaves for a third season, the network announced Tuesday.

The show looks at the real-life highs and lows of passengers who board Southwest Airlines flights at Los Angeles International, Chicago Midway and Baltimore/Washington International airports. HoustonHobbyAirport will join the roster during season No. 3.

Airline, which airs on A&E Mondays at 10 p.m. (EST/PST), launched in January. Its second season is currently in production, and work on the third season is set to begin early next year.

Airline has more than earned its wings,” A&E senior vice president of programming Bob DeBitetto said in a prepared statement.

“As the many Airline fans across the country can tell you, the stories are among the most engaging, funny, poignant and multifaceted that television has to offer,” he added. “That’s why we are pleased to offer a new season of this great show to our viewers and pleased to continue our association with Southwest Airlines.”
