* TheBadGuysAreCops: [[spoiler:The big twist.]]

* TheRemake: While not officially designated as one, the film bears quite a few similarities to Alfred Hitchcock's ''Film/TheLadyVanishes'', most notably the missing person's existence being proven by their having drawn on window condensation.

** Nothing better shows how overly complicated their plan is than by remembering that step one involved [[spoiler:Murdering an American expatriate just so they could use his casket to smuggle the bomb on board the plane,and to get his wife and daughter on board the flight to set up a DeceasedFallGuyGambit. If the authorities even suspected that Gene was involved in Kyle's husband's death. Or if Kyle herself had stayed to cooperate with the investigation if the police suspected foul play. The plan would have been foiled before it even got off the ground.]]

Three hours into the flight the two take a nap; when Kyle wakes up, Julia has disappeared without a trace. Everyone on board the plane, including air marshal Gene Carson (Peter Sarsgaard), flight attendant Stephanie (Kate Beahan) and Captain Marcus Rich (Creator/SeanBean) insist that they never saw her daughter, [[{{Unperson}} and that her name is not even listed on the flight's manifest]]. That's when things get crazy.

* {{Outgambitted}}: [[spoiler: Kyle ultimately foils that hijackers by using the fact that the crew thinks she is the hijacker to her advantage by telling everyone to leave the plane before Carson can do so, knowing that he would have to go along to avoid suspicion. Allowing her to search for the bomb and Julia without interference and completely turning the tables on them.]] * PlotHole: Loads. For example; in order to calm her down and get her to accept that she was delusional and that her daughter had died along with her husband; why didn't they verify that there were two caskets instead not one in the hold?

* TechMarchesOn: This film came out two years to early for what little plausibility the villains plot may have had to be completely blown to hell by the rise of modern Social Media and smartphones. Just one look at Kyle's Facebook, Foursquared or LinkedIn or even a Google search of her name, would reveal enough evidence supporting her story cause the crew to overule Carson and look deeper.

* DeceasedFallGuyGambit: [[spoiler:What the villains plan would have become in its final form. After arriving in their final destination, they would have made all the other passengers leave with Kyle still in custody. Quietly sneaked off the plane, detonated the bomb that was strapped onto Julia vaporizing her body and destroying all evidence she was ever on board and killing Kyle who would still be on board. They than tell their story to the authorities, get praised as heroes and jet to a nice warm, extradition free island to enjoy their money before anyone realizes that a thing or two doesn't add up.]]
