* CrossOver: With ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' - Norm and Cliff in "The Story of Joe", Frasier and Lilith in "Planes, Trains, and Visiting Cranes", Rebecca Howe in "I Love Brian". In the first story, the duo are going to a fishing spot... but they end up just sitting in the terminal bar and commenting on the goings-on, just like they do on ''Cheers''. They never get to fish, but decide they had a great time anyway.

* QuietlyPerformingSisterShow: ''Wings'' never got the critical acclaim or the ratings that its companion pieces ''{{Cheers}}'' and ''{{Frasier}}'' did, but it ran for eight seasons and had a ''very'' loyal fanbase.

** There's an even stronger case of cast derivation from ''Wings'' [[SpiritualSuccessor Spiritual Predecessor]], ''{{Series/Taxi}}'': Joe/Alex is the StraightMan to {{Schemer}} Brian/Bobby, JerkAss Roy/Louie messes with the others, FunnyForeigner Antonio/Latka and CloudCuckoolander Lowell/Reverend Jim each serve as an EnsembleDarkhorse, Helen/Elaine is TheChick, and Fay/Tony is the affable {{Ditz}}.

* ArtisticLicenseSports: In the episode "The Team Player," Antonio, temporarily running the Sandpiper counter while Joe and Brian are away at a Bruins [[UsefulNotes/IceHockey hockey]] game, causes the Bruins' star player, Danny "Dead End" Connelly, to miss the game. The wrath of all of Massachusetts descends on Joe and Brian, but the airline is saved from disaster when the hockey star abruptly leaves the team to sign a huge contract with their rivals. In what sporting league is one able to walk out on one's contract and immediately join a rival ''in the middle of the season''? Not the [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague NHL]], at least.

***Additionally, for every pissed-off fan, there would've been three who would've ridiculed this guy for trying to pull the "Do you know who I am?" card.
***And on top of that, if it was that close to game time, shouldn't he have been ''at the arena already''? If such a thing happened in the real world, the sports media would have been chewing him out mercilessly.
**In "Blackout Buggins", the group goes to Fenway Park to watch Roy sing the national anthem. After Roy finishes the song, a Red Sox player with the name Casey on his jersey is seen taking the field. The Red Sox have never featured player names on the back of their home jerseys.
