* LampshadeHanging: Third series episode Newcastle features a different actor playing Martin, owing to Benedict Cumberbatch being off sick. (In the two preceding episodes, his voice is noticeably croaky, to boot.) In a lampshade-heavy ColdOpening presumably written at the last minute, the other three cast members have a conversation about what would happen if one of MJN's two pilots were to call in sick. When the recast Martin enters the flight deck, Arthur comments that he's looking extremely well, but Douglas claims he looks exactly the same as always.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Arthur. "It has long been a maxim of MJN Air that when Arthur [[StopHelpingMe stops helping]], we can do anything."

* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: Uttered with heavy sarcasm by Douglas regarding the plan for Martin (who's got a sprained ankle) and Arthur (who's Arthur) to deliver a piano by van. He thinks tagging along in "a managerial role" [[WrongGenreSavvy will help matters...]]

* BlessedAreTheCheeseMakers: Douglas and Martin take the cheese tray very seriously. Hardly surprising, given the state of the rest of the catering.

* PlayingAgainstType: Benedict Cumberbatch usually plays geniuses or characters who are very clever with words, however Martin Crieff is basically [[RedDwarf Arnold Rimmer]] on a plane. He is constantly outwitted by his co-pilot, desperate to prove himself to be a compitant pilot and, as pointed out in 'Paris' anything ''but'' Sherlock Holmes.

-->'''Douglas:''' Always at hand with the ''mot juste'', aren't you Arthur? Yes, the Sahara Desert ''is'' "brilliant", just as Niagara Falls was "brilliant", the Northern Lights were "brilliant", and that chap from [=RyanAir=] burping the theme from ''TheMuppets'' was "''really'' brilliant".
