They definitely can do amazing things, but I never would have thought this much trouble would be spent on something like this. The attention to detail is amazing. There's even a skyteam logo.

The CGI guy must have been an a.net member trolling us and is now laughing at his computer screen at all of our puzzlement. That's the only logical explanation I can think of at least
|Quoting jpetekyxmd80 (Reply 2):|
I think they probably filmed an A300 landing on location, and digitally edited it into the Delta livery. For whatever deal or reason Delta branding was used in other scenes. And they did a really good job with it!

Could DL have had a vested interest in the movie
|Quoting teusje (Reply 21):|
Just watched the Bluray and it's definitely an A.300-600.
|Quoting brilondon (Reply 15):|
Could DL have had a vested interest in the movie such as being used as the airline that transported the cast and crew to locations and in return used their colour scheme as part of the agreement?
|Quoting rwy04lga (Reply 19):|
Why not just use an actual video of an actual A330 actually at BKK instead of an actual digital rendering?
|Quoting RyanairGuru (Reply 17):|
DL pay a significant amount for brand placement in a lot of movies. It is a form of subliminal advertising. If you look at just about any US produced movie from the last 3 years I can almost guarantee that the airline "used" is Delta, simply because they paid the most!
|Quoting brilondon (Reply 22):|
Why would they not use an actual DL aircraft taking off from BKK? They could not use a DL aircraft because DL only has one flight a day that arrives in the middle of the night and leaves very early in the morning. Not the best light for the filming.

As far as the winglet issue, what is used on the end of the wing if there is no winglet? Is there some wingtip end-cap that Airbus offers?
|Quoting N243NW (Reply 24):|
In that closeup photo of the NW bird, it kinda looks like just a lot of strategically placed speed tape...
|Quoting DocLightning (Reply 21):|
There are various possible arrangements that might exist from an exchange of goods, services, or money. Any time you see a brand name in a movie, you can bet that the company owning that brand paid sometime (be it money, services, or goods) to get that brand placed there.
|Quoting DocLightning (Reply 21):|
The only situation I can imagine in which a brand would be there without an agreement with the company is when it is a historical brand for a now-defunct company, like the use of the White Star Line in the movie Titanic. Although I wonder if Carnival Corp (the parent company of Cunard) owns the White Star brand...
