* ItsTheOnlyWay: {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d: The villain releases a bunch of snakes onto a single plane to catch one kid who may have been the witness to the murder he committed. One of his lackeys questions whether or not it was all worth it, and he responds, "Don't you think I've exhausted every other option?!"

* {{Nerd}}: Averted. Dr. Steven Price, the snake expert consulted by the FBI, is a bit eccentric (what PhD isn't?), but is professional, calm and collected, basically gives the FBI their most important leads and greatly assists medical personnel with treatment. He manages to communicate his expertise to laypeople quickly, in terms they understand, without coming across as an arrogant asshole or using SpockSpeak -- professional, but clearly understands that people's lives are at stake. Dr. Price should be the model for film scientists everywhere.

* Expy: According to the novelization, Mercedes is a hotel heiress, which, coupled with her love of tiny dogs, makes her an obvious one of Creator/ParisHilton.

* PacManFever: A console flight sim isn't complex enough to teach anyone how to fly a plane. A game like VideoGame/MicrosoftFlightSimulator might, but there aren't really any flight games on consoles sophisticated enough to simulate real flight; it would be the equivalent of learning how to drive with VideoGame/GranTurismo. See IKnowMortalKombat above.

* FailOSuckyname: ExecutiveMeddling nearly saddled the movie with the decidedly less than awesome title ''Pacific Air Flight 121'', until Samuel L. Jackson threatened to quit.

* {{Bowdlerization}}: FX had "monkey-fighting snakes" on a "Monday-to-Friday plane", followed by "freaking windows".
** And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX9y2lAuo90 that's not even HALF of it]]! For one, there's mention of a "Thai [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princess]]".
