* UnresolvedSexualTension: Thanks to Chuck Cunningham Syndrome, ''very'' unresolved. Sam's feelings for her was the overarching plot of the first season, with Piper's unclear reciprocation made clear. It winds up quite unresolved because she and Lizzie are completely written out of the show with no acknowledgement they ever existed, with Sam instead getting various [[GirlOfTheWeek girls of the week]].

A short lived comedy series on {{FOX}} airing from 2006 to 2007. The show focuses on Sam Sullivan, a young professional hired straight out of school by an airline company. Initially the focus of the series was Sam balancing his social life with his responsibilities, the second season became a more standardized WorkCom, and most of the non-work cast was written out of the show. This change didn't save the show, and the second season was cut short.

!!This show provides examples of:
* AcceptableTargets: An episode is built around the fact that fat people are often considered this.
* CatchPhrase: Darcy's "I went to M.I.T."
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Lizzie and Piper in between the first and second seasons. Particularly jarring because Sam's crush on Piper is ''the'' major subplot of the first season.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Sully.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: [[spoiler:NOT Meryl.]]
* FatSuit: Sam dons one in order to experience what his overweight passengers experience on his planes.
* FetishFuel: Darcy, on her date with Derek Tricoli.
* GenreShift: Mild example, but between the first and second seasons, the premise of the show was Sam balancing a healthy social life and his job. The second season effectively shifted to a full-fledged WorkCom, complete with most of the cast that wasn't affiliated with his job being written out of the show.
* HilariousInHindsight: Snobby Derek Tricoli works for Goldman Sachs. Two years later, the firm's reputation would suffer due to the 2008 financial crisis.
* HypercompetentSidekick: Darcy, though Sam isn't incompetent by any means.
* JerkAss: Derek Tricoli.
* LongDistanceRelationship: Piper, which is part of the reason for her UST with Sam.
* ProductPlacement: The central theme of one episode.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: Thanks to Chuck Cunningham Syndrome, ''very'' unresolved.
