into zany fun with Millicent Martin and Pat Finley as two high-spirited air
stewardesses who find themselves involved in one dizzy dilemma after another.
This series takes viewers into whirlwind comedy as the two girls take-off
into laughter-filled situations with Peter Jones as their long-suffering
boss and Robert Cawdron as Millie's Irish uncle. Martin plays the well
meaning but impulsive "Millie" whose heart rules her head when holding out
a helping hand to those in trouble. Finley is her anguished American
co-stewardess who knows that every trip is going to be a flight into
fantastic adventure.
