First, the family is trying to catch an 11:30 am departure out of ORD
. At that time, the ORY
departure left between 5 and 6 pm. AA
's only departure for Europe that leaves before noon is a LHR
departure at 9 am, and that didn't start until the mid 90s.
Second, the plane that left for ORY
in the movie was a DC-10. At the time, the ORY
flght was with a 767.
Third, the DC-10 that took off was a Series 10 (No center main gear). Sorry, but that plane doesn't have trans-Atlantic range.
Home Alone 2:
First, the family is flying to MIA
, but Kevin winds up on a flight to LGA
. While AA
was flying 767s from ORD
, the only widebodies going to MIA
were A300s. Yet, both flight in the movie were 767s.
Second, Kevin gets to sit in first class. Funny thing, but there is a spiral staircase in the first class cabin. I don't recall the 767 having a staircase going up from the cabin. My guess is that the scene was shot in the 747SP cabin simulator.
