I think I would rather see "Airport." The movie starred Dean Martin and Jacqueline Bisset as the pilot and lead flight attendant of a TransGlobal Airlines Flight that is bombed in route from Chicago to Rome. The plane involved is a Boeing 707 intercontinental.
Aviation is proof that, given the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.

I don't know if that's such a good idea for airlines to show those movies like Turbulence, as that wouldn't help PR any. There are people who tend to be wary or even fearful of flying. But I remember coming across something interesting. In the movie Rain Man, with Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. Dustin, as the autistic guy who'd just gotten out an institution, freaks out at an airport and starts spouting out airline crash stats by airline. Vaious US airlines have shown Rain Man as inflight movies, but with the dialogue about the crashes cut out or edited. Qantas was the only airline to show Rain Man with that same dialogue completely unedited. This was out of a travel guide on Australia.

I think "Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines," a 1965 comedy about early attempts to cross the English Channel in every conceivable flying contraption, would be a pretty cool in-flight movie.

A have seen a movie called "Forces of Nature"
staring Sandra Bullock, in which is a scene when
a seagull flies into aircraft's engine on takeoff and
the plane crashes. Later, I was on flight Vienna-Kuala Lumpur with Malaysian B777, and I was very surprised
when I saw the movie with such scene on PTV's. So I
watched and guess what - all that scene was CUTTED !!! ---no comment---
