The series premiere introduces the shoestring budget airline crew and its eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take the roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind: to come back a winner. It won't be easy, but this unlikely group of miscreants and dreamers will eventually go from being strangers on a plane to a supportive, if unconventional, family—well, at least from Friday to Sunday.
The flight crew must manage the passengers' unease after they realize they have a corpse onboard. Plus, Captain Dave struggles to land the plane.
In Captain Dave’s absence, his rival, Captain Steve, is assigned to cover the flight’s route. Meanwhile, Artem and Nichole help Colin plan his son’s birthday party.
Ronnie recognizes that a regular passenger appears to be cheating on his wife and considers whether or not she should expose him. Captain Dave falls for an air traffic controller, but has trouble asking her out. Meanwhile, passengers get a little carried away when Jackpot Airlines installs credit card swipers to charge for just about everything on board.
When Captain Dave offends the cleaning crew, he and Bernard have to find the stinky "present" they left behind. Meanwhile, Ronnie and Colin are on a hunt of their own to find his son's lost yellow teddy bear, and Artem teaches Nichole how to play poker.
While dealing with a personal dental emergency, Ronnie must turn to an unlikely source for help. Meanwhile, Colin attempts to train Captain Dave for a fight he has scheduled with Captain Steve, and Artem and Nichole start collecting bets on which pilot will win.
When Colin gets served with divorce papers, Captain Dave tries to cheer him up with a guys' night out that includes Alan, Artem and Bernard. Meanwhile, Nichole brings Ronnie on an interesting double date.
Ronnie is evicted from her apartment and kicked out of Bernard's, so Captain Dave invites her to stay with him in a community of airline workers. Colin is flustered by his bad student reviews, so Nichole and Bernard sit in on his class to give him pointers, and Artem tracks down Dave to collect a debt.
