Langoliers is a Steven King film about a plane that goes to another dimesion because it flew thru the Aurora Borealis. Everybody who was awake when it went thru disappeared, everyone who was asleep, stayed on the flight. The only thing is, the dimension they went to is old and stale and waiting to be eaten up by the langoliers...which eventually come! You'll have to watch the movie to see what happens. Only problem is, you'd have to fly around the world a couple times in a Sopwith Camel in order to watch the whole thing.
Anyway my pick would be:
The Day After Tomorrow (haven't seen it, but it looks cool)

Oh, I think Ive seen that film about six years ago, if I remember rightly. Do they fly in a 727-200 of an airline called "American Pride"? I remember this, because of the aircraft type. The film was quite amusing, must say.

Actually, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" would get my vote. It's a very captivating film... you can't help but watch it. And for me, a movie like that makes a 7 hour flight from Singapore to Tokyo go by very quickly.
"Airplane" is a great movie, and Iwould probably watch it on my own computer on a flight, but I think with all the political corectness in the world today, some passengers would get offended if they showed that in the main cabin, right?

I am not much of a movie goer, usually I wait for films to come on HBO so I get to see films on flights I wouldn't see till much later. To me, I would prefer a firm that doesn't need to be heavily censored for flight use, that is one I wouldn't mind a child seeing or if censored, doesn't lose it's storyline. I would prefer a popular or entertaining humorous or action film. On a recent CO flight SEA-EWR, had Shrek 2, which while not to me as good as the first film, and probably slightly censored for airline use, it would be an excellent example of what I prefer to see on a flight. I don't like kiddie or horror type films on flights. I also don't want 'chick flicks' on a flight either, unless the women in the film is highly attractive. I also don't want to see some box office stink bomb on a flight.
