I was wondering if anyone has ever expeirenced a movie that maybe was not the best choice to be shown in flight or for a specific situation.

I remember seeing U-571 on KL over the North Atlantic and the watching the sinking scene in "The Perfect Storm" right as the moving map showed our DL 763 over the same area of the sinking near Newfoundland.

I saw Get Shorty on UA five times one month. The first two times showed the aircraft crash scene. The latter three times showed a train wreck in its place -- despite 3-4-3 seating.  Smile

"Airplane" was actually screened (unedited) on one of the PTV channels (I think it was the "Barking Mad" one) of a BA flight that I took once. It may have been in mid-2002, or earlier. Someone at BA with access to past IFE schedules may be able to confirm.

Last June, I was coming back to Atlanta on Delta from Santiago, and the video tape of the particular movie which was to be shown, "Along came Polly" was warpped(or so was said) and so they put in Primal Fear, the 1997 with Richard Gere instead.
Funny thing was, the film was not edited for content. (On the main cabin screen mind you) And as we were eating dinner, lovely images of a crime scene were shown, then a little bit later, a brief sexually explict scene was shown as well.
I did not mind the fact I was seeing an unedit movie, but there was a missonary group for Birmingham, who were in the rows next to and in front of me. I thought that was kind of funny, but I don't know what reprocussions Delta received for this...if any.

Also,
I was on a BA flight from LHR to DEN in the summer of '03, and they played American Wedding unedited as well.

It's enjoyable to watch movies on the PTV uneditied for content.

I've seen both "True Lies" and "Milk Money" (a movie about a little boy propositioning a hooker) on Hawaiian Airlines. If I'd had children with me, I'd have been pretty upset.

We once saw "Backdraft", a movie about firefighting, on a flight (UAL?). My wife thought this was pretty inappropriate.

I was brave enough to watch 'Castaway' on a flight from the US. It was only available on the Sony 'Watchman' (old Sony handheld Hi8 player) service and the film did have a warning issued with it regarding 'very realistic plane crash scenes'...

Airplane (1980) had an interesting in flight movie, it showed the crash of Douglas DC7 44275 N68N which was destroyed by the FAA in a controlled crash at Deer Lake Arizona USA on 24 April 1964.

it didnt happen to me. but my mom was on BWI-DEN on UA years ago and she is DEATHLY terrified of flying, and they showed final destination. dont get me wrong, its a cool movie, but not appropriate as an in flight movie! My mom did not enjoy herself to say the least. lol

That's amazing! I could never imagine an american airline playing a movie like that unedited. We can be so tight-wadded sometimes...

On a somewhat related note, last year, because of the wardrobe malfunction, the FCC started cracking down and Howard Stern was taken off my local station...Six months later, he finally came back on a different station, and I was happy for that... but it just goes to show that life is all about choices... someone at MTV made a choice that indirectly stopped me from listening to Howard Stern for half a year... oh well, I could ramble on about this all day, but I won't.

"Crossroads". Oh wait, that's not an inappropriate In-flight movie, it's just inappropriate, and hardly a movie.

No, I never saw Crossroads. I just thought that it would have to be one of the worst films to be "forced" to see.  Smile Oh, and "Master of disguise" is a good runner up...

I would say "planet of the apes", the new one. A lot of things blowing up, crashing, and fire. The funny part is that at the end of the move where there were a lot of these happening, we were going through some very rought turbulence.

Priklucheni Italyansi v Rosiii - saw it on a flight with Aeroflot, SVO-LHR. I can't remember much of it, but it's an old film, and they land this SU aircraft on a motorway.. and one of the passengers at the end of the film said "thank you brave Russian pilot, we'll fly Aeroflot again". Lovely  Smile

Quoting Aseem (reply 4):

They actually did show Titanic when I flew MIA-LHR on one of BA's 744's a couple of years ago. It didn't offend me and it wasn't about a plane-crash of course but I don't think disaster movies are a great choice as IFE.

Apart from the movie selcetion, service was just perfect. Really enjoyed that flight!

33 ThomasCook : Hi, Thomas Cook where playing the movie Calendar Girls on its flights last Winter which was very controversial and received many complaints! :0 Regard
34 Catatonic : I was on BA JFK-LHR on 9/2/05. They showed this film that was about this guy and he was looking at porn pics and they showed everything, Hairy pussies
