You think that part with exploding aircraft was funny?
Movie shows what had happened to TWA Flight800. Even in that movie is original picture of flames on the ocean. This part is very sad but rest of the movie kick asses. I like the part with the train

Isn't this movie a bit tasteless, based on TWA800 (not in a technical sense, but storywise)? I have read somewhere that the school class on board that flight was the inspiration to the screenwriter, and you really notice it: Flight to Paris, B747, Explosion above Long Island, footage of the plane parts in the sea - not exactly subtle, is it?
Apart from being tasteless and rude, it was quite good.

I think it was a good movie, but some things did not make sense. First, when some of the kids were removed from the aircraft, their baggages were not removed from the aircraft, I thought it's international regulation not that prohibits unaccompanied baggage. And did the flight exploded above Long Island? I thought it exploded right after it took off. Was it filmed in JFK? If so, what terminal was it?

I've seen it and I really liked it, although the part with the aircraft scared me to death of flying for a couple of days, it was very sad to see piece of the burning plane on the ocean, remind me of TWA800 as Lyndi stated. The part I like the most is when they were finally in Paris 1 year after and the big advertisemtn thingy comes down on the guy ...wow scary! lol

I really liked the movie. The plot is somewhat predescribed, and a little obvious, but the opening is an absolute thriller! My favorite part of the movie is when Hitchcock is looking out of the terminal window and sees the 747 explode. Everybody then looks at Alex... Wow, you just get those chills... I bought the DVD...

the reason why i watched this movie was because of the aircraft scene....i couldn't believe they use the actual news clip from the TWA 800 accident...it was really horrific when the plane explode......you can imagione how those people in flight 800 must have gone through when the accident happened!!!!!
apart from that scene...i think the movie was only ok.....

The Airport scenes were filmed in YVR (Vancouver, Canada).
I am not sure if the whole movie was filmed here, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was.
I watched the movie 3 times, it was pretty good, but probably more graphic than it needed to be when the plane blew up.
