Added DiffLines:

* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: It's implied that the lead NTSB investigator pulls one during the hearing to get Whitaker to admit that he was drunk during the flight. Notable in that it was clearly not out of malice but simply that the whole truth would come out.]]

* ShellShockedSilence: When the plane crashes, Whip hits his head on his control yoke, knocking him out cold. From that moment until he's loaded into the ambulance, the sound of ringing ears can be heard and all other sounds are muffled or distorted to varying degrees.

* StukaScream: Can be heard briefly when [=SouthJet=] 227 resumes diving after the First Officer deploys flaps to try to curtail the initial dive. This is noticeably out of place considering there's no possible way for an MD-80 airliner to make this sound.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Hugh Lang may be ruthless about winning Whip's case, down to discrediting legitimate evidence and falsely blaming dead coworkers, but when [[spoiler:hiring Harling to give Whip a wake-up cocaine snort from a hangover, he noticeably avoids handing Harling money directly, instead making Anderson give Harling the cash.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WorstAid: Whip twice uses cocaine as a hangover cure after heavy nights of drinking. The health hazards of putting so many substances into your body notwithstanding, [[http://www.hangoverheaven.com/blog/2015/7/16/cocaine-and-hangovers cocaine's effects on relieving a hangover are pretty short term]]. Realistically, Whip would fall back into a daze after 15 to 30 minutes, but aside from one mention of a later offscreen snort at the climax, he's sharp-minded and steady again for the rest of the day each time.

* GoingColdTurkey: Subverted.
* GoryDiscretionShot: After the crash, [[spoiler: Katerina's]] body is only visible below the neck, with the splash of blood hinting at what happened to the head.

* GoingColdTurkey: Subverted.
After being released from the hospital, Whip goes through the house he's staying at and throws out or flushes down all the alcohol he can find. However, his sobriety only lasts for a day or so and then he's back to drinking again.

* HookersAndBlow: Whip's general behavior before the accident. Note, Katerina isn't a prostitute, but the promiscuity is still there.

* DrunkenMaster: Deconstructed. Whip can pull off a maneuver to save his plane that no other pilot can do ''while drunk and high'', but his personal life suffers severely and [[spoiler:once the authorities find out about his addiction, his flight career is over]].
