Continuity mistake: After the hijackers have taken over the plane, the blond flight attendant's hair, styled in a French Twist, keeps changing from messy (presumably from the chaos) to as smooth and neat as when she boarded the plane. She's never offscreen long enough to have simply fixed it. Not until the passengers revolt does it remain disheveled.
On September 11, 2001, four young Arabians prepared themselves for hijacking United Flight 93. The same day, America witnessed three attacks, as one plane destroyed the Pentagon and two others, destroyed both towers of the World Trade Center. The FAA and Military are unprepared for this and battle to deal with the situation. A delay of United 93 allows the passengers to learn of the attacks, which leads them to believe that they too are part of a hijacking and must stop the terrorists, in order to saves thousands of lives.
Ziad Jarrah: Open the door. Open the door and nobody will be hurt.
Trivia: The FAA National Operations Manager, Ben Sliney, was played by himself. September 11/2001 was also his first day on the job.
Question: How exactly did Ben Sliney determine from watching the CNN report that the plane had struck the North Tower from the west, based on the position of the sun? Seems a bit of a reach given that there were huge, gaping holes on all 4 sides of the building, and theoretically, any one of those could've been the point of entry for the plane. (00:38:23)
