If you've flown even just once in your life, you've witnessed the drama that can happen in an airport: Mad dashes to make a flight, baggage issues, and, of course, security check-in.
TLC is bringing cameras along for the ride as it goes behind-the-scenes with Southwest Airlines at airports across the country in the new series "On the Fly."
The 13 half-hour episodes will go "behind the gate to reveal what it takes to transport [Southwest's] customers in an era that finds flying seemingly more complicated than ever before," says a statement from the network.
The series has filmed in Baltimore, Maryland's Baltimore/Washington International airport and Denver, Colorado's Denver International.
"On the Fly" also features Chicago's Midway International; Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International; Louis Armstrong New Orleans International; Philadelphia International; Sacramento International; and Tampa International airport.
The series also aims to incorporate the customers' point of view, "sharing the story behind their journeys and the people they cross paths with during the trip."
Check out the exclusive video of "On the Fly," which premieres Thursdays at 9 p.m. on TLC starting May 24.
