Corrected entry: When the plane hits turbulence luggage in the overhead compartments begin to fall on passengers. There is a shot where a piece of luggage falls and hits the baby on the head. The mother has no reaction to this and a few scenes later the baby is okay. A baby that small being hit on the head would cause severe head injury and the baby would not be able to recuperate that quickly.
Corrected entry: The snakes' vision is shown to be completely green, even living things. But snakes see in thermal vision, so living things would look orange or red.
Corrected entry: When the herpetologist sees the snake picture drawn by the boy, he questions what the snake is, when it is a cobra. The herpetologist is a strange snake expert if he cannot identify a snake from an excellent drawing.
Corrected entry: When the mile high couple go into the toilet, the woman originally had on a pink top. However in the next scene she is wearing a turquoise one.
Corrected entry: Air traffic control is much more complex than what's depicted in the movie. In reality, the plane would not be communicating with Los Angeles Tower until it was on final approach, and certainly not when it's still 1,500 miles away! Aircraft en route are actually handed off from one Area Control Center to another, each of which controls a very large region of airspace, before being handed off to the tower near the end of the flight.
Corrected entry: When Samuel Jackson shoots out the plane's windows he is shooting at the left side of the plane (or pilot's side). When an outside shot of the plane is shown the hole is now on the right side (co-pilot's side)of the plane.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when the snakes are sucked out of the plane, various other debris follows, including the half devoured Paul. Strangely, he is the only dead passenger being seen while at least some of the other over 50 victims should have passed by. Also, the raft mysteriously disappears after being lifted from the staircase.
Corrected entry: When the passengers are in a blind panic getting away from the snakes, the stairs break so they block the hole using the inflatable boat. Later on when the plane has landed, everyone walks down the same flight of stairs - which are perfectly intact.
Corrected entry: I know it was done for the film but I know of no airlines that allow you to bring your dog on board in your lap. With so many having allergies etc. this is a major health concern and it was not a medical dog.
Corrected entry: The radio calls made by the copilot do not adhere to proper radio procedure calls for aviation. The call letter code is incorrect, not bearing any resemblance to an alpha code for the identifying flight and number, the order of making the Mayday call is incorrect, he should call Mayday 3 times first, then his identification, and the call for the pilot having a perceived heart attack should not be a mayday call, but a Pan, Pan , Pan call. The difference is a Mayday call is for imminent danger to the plane, such as catastrophic engine failure, likely to result in a crash. A Pan call is to notify ATC that an emergency has occurred (such as medical) but the plane is not in danger of crashing. The co-pilot for a major airline would be able to fly the plane without the captain, so the plane is not in immediate danger. Yet.
Corrected entry: When the plane is desperately attempting to get to land in LA, the GPS on the control panel shows the plane by-passing landing areas over California's other cities.
Corrected entry: When the couple get pinned down after the cart hits them, they get attacked by the snakes. If you watch closely enough, when the man gets sprayed by the venom, it actually hits his cheek, not his eyes, but his eyes start foaming straight afterwards.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the boy is bitten on the hand, the passenger asks the stewardess to bring her some Olive Oil to put on the bite. I've flown first class before and I know of no airline stocking Olive Oil.
