Synopsis: Bernard is one lucky 60s bachelor. He is engaged to three beautiful air hostesses who will never meet thanks to his relationship bible – the airline timetable. But, when a speedy new Boeing and a storm cause the women to have simultaneous layovers, Bernard’s unwitting friend, Robert, gets caught up in his own lies and futile attempts to conceal Bernard’s polygamy. There’s a 100% chance of turbulence in Bernard’s crowded Parisian loft.
