In that there have been many movies showing military flying, I wonder if anyone can answer the following questions, which I place here to entice some discussion about airlines and how they are portrayed in movies. I have placed it in the photography forum because movies are lots of little photos moving very fast behind a lens.
Why is it there has never been a serious film about the airline industry? The efforts have either been farces, or they have been action-films about crashes and disasters. How is it that such an exciting industry never is portrayed in a way that would show the positive impact on society and the global economy when airline professionals do their job competently and effectively, getting people and products to their destinations safely and on time? It happens every day, and little credit is given to those who make it possible.
