No doubt it helps selling the series to those markets where attention spans are all they might me. Also re-using footage saves a bit of money; even 'cheap' TV like reality shows are expensive to...

I would suspect that all that's in it for the company is the free publicity, which you otherwise simply couldn't buy.

Agree about the food. In main dining rooms they're cooking for hundreds of people; in my experience the food in main dining rooms is just a bit better than decent wedding banquet standard.

Apparently 'BA managers will then be able to thank cabin crew individuals personally for their contribution in delivering exceptional service.'

So it's a recognition scheme. Actually 'thank you's '...

Cabin crew safety training is regulated by the CAA and includes a standard exam so it should be pretty similar across airlines.
