An airline for whom no job is too small but many, many jobs are too difficult


The story takes place at MJN Air, the world’s smallest airline, consisting of just one 16-seater plane: a Lockheed McDonnell 312, registration G-ERTI, and thus nicknamed “Gerti”.

The company name derives from when owner Carolyn Knapp-Shappey (Stephanie Cole) won Gerti as part of her divorce settlement with her awful Australian husband Gordon Shappey (Timothy West) and thus proudly proclaimed that Gerti was: “My Jet Now”.

The company is so small, with Carolyn joking that rather than airline MJN is more of an “airdot”, that everything is run on a tight budget and they are willing to take on any job to keep the business going.
