* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Bob Hatten (Clu Gulager) runs security at the airport. When an uptight businessman accuses a hippy of punching him, he clearly expects Bob to side with him. Instead, Bob calmly assesses the situation, recognizes the hippy couldn't have done it, shakes the hippy's hand and lets him go. The businessman is appalled that Bob could possibly believe the hippy over him.

* ShownTheirWork: The ERCO Ercoupe was an airplane designed after the end of World War II to be incredibly safe and easy to fly. It's nearly impossible to stall due to some very smart engineering. Nobody who designed it, however, probably envisaged its use as a setpiece in a dull 70s TV movie.

The series began with a 90-minute TV-movie, '''''San Francisco International Airport''''', that served as a pilot. Though critical response was lukewarm, the pilot was picked up for six episodes (as part of NBC's WheelProgram ''Four in One'') in the fall of 1970, but was not renewed beyond the initial six. In the series version, the network stipulated that Lloyd Bridges replace Pernell Roberts; only Clu Gulager was retained for the series. Interestingly, it's apparently the same character of Jim Conrad that Lloyd Bridges parodies in ''Film/{{Airplane}}''.

'''''San Francisco International (Airport)''''' is a 1970 Creator/{{NBC}} television series [[FollowTheLeader partially inspired by]] ''Film/{{Airport}}''. Similarly to other airplane-based {{disaster movie}}s, it concerns the interpersonal interactions between the major staff of the airport. Unusually for an airplane disaster movie/series, the airlines are real, lending a sort of authenticity to the proceedings.
