Flightplan

Stupidity: Considering he is an Air Marshal and a psychopathic hijacker, someone like Carson should have never turned his back on Kyle while he was closing the airplane door as he would be and is easily incapacitated by Kyle.

Stupidity: Why didn't Kyle ask the Captain to ask the person in charge of the airport Kyle was in to have airport security check the cameras? Security cameras would have been all over the airport and seen Julia.

Plot hole: The whole concept of a kidnapper 'pretending' his victim didn't get on the plane in the first place is utterly laughable. Even if nobody saw her in her seat, why didn't they see her walking down the aisle to her seat, or waiting to board the plane, or in the boarding tunnel itself? Why isn't she listed on the passenger manifest, or on her mother's travel documents or airline ticket? And there would have been security cameras all over the airport.
