** Most of Martin's interactions with Karl, the Air Traffic Controller, involve Martin berating him for neglecting to use the right terminology.

* PopCulturalOsmosisFailure: In "Abu Dhabi", Martin seems to think that Cpt. Ahab (of ''Literature/MobyDick'' fame) and Cpt. Bligh (of RealLife and ''Literature/MutinyOnTheBounty'' fame) are friends of Douglas' from Air England, and that [[TheCaineMutiny Cpt. Queeg]] is something Douglas made up. He eventually cottons on that they're fictional characters.

A BBC radio sitcom, written by Creator/JohnFinnemore, about a small charter airline (or, technically, an 'airdot', as you can't put only one aircraft in a line). There are two pilots, a good one (Douglas) and a safe one (Martin), the former played by Creator/RogerAllam, the latter by Creator/BenedictCumberbatch. The attendants are Carolyn (Stephanie Cole, ''WaitingForGod''), who owns the airline as part of her last divorce settlement, and Arthur (Creator/JohnFinnemore), her well-meaning, if dim, late-twenties son.

* 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.

* 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...]]
