* OneSceneWonder: The American Special Forces operators seen in the film's opening scene. They are only in the movie for a few minutes (to capture Radek), but they are absolute ''badasses'' during their limited screen time.

* CompleteMonster: Korshunov, who executes the Press Secretary even ''after'' the vice president shows she's willing to be reasonable, just because Radek's release would "take a little more time". And then he somehow [[UpToEleven tops]] this MoralEventHorizon by shooting a terrified innocent hostage in an attempt to get Marshall to surrender- all while she's begging for her life. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And he has the President's baseball glove]].

*** Up to this point, no one else, besides Marshall and the Major, knew that he was the mole. He is a trusted Secret Service agent who fought against the terrorists so he could have claimed the Major shot Marshall, he shot the Major and escaped afterward.

*** Still seems unlikely anyone would believe that fully,considering how paranoid everyone would be afterwards and any investigation would focus on probable Secret Service traitors not an Air Force major.The Secret Service ultimately is responsible for safety and they would most likely have had a traitor.

** Also Agent Gibbs. Does he really think he is going to be guarding any more presidents even if he didn't leave the president behind on a doomed plane?

* WhatAnIdiot: Terrorist Sergei apparently doesn't know what explosive decompression is. To get through a locked door he jams a fire extinguisher in the handle and shoots it. ''On a plane''. This results in at least five people (including a restrained terrorist) getting sucked out of the plane (although we see three people have chutes safely opened). ''And'' the [[spoiler: President almost fell out]]. Unfortunately, Sergei isn't one of them. This also leads to the explosion of the tanker plane that was refueling Air Force One at the time, and could easily have killed EVERYONE if not for the pilot's quick thinking.

** The villains in general. What exactly did they plan to ''do'' if their plan succeeded? Retribution against them and any nation even ''suspected'' of helping them would have been dire.

* HonorBeforeReason: The military leaders loyal to Radek [[spoiler: launch [=MiGs=] to shoot down Air Force One after he and Korunsov are killed. Assume the President and his family are all killed, especially after overcoming the terrorists. What then? Assuming their republic isn't made a crater, it is easy to imagine sanctions so ferocious and long-lasting that reaching the Stone Age might be a pipe dream, likely extending to anyone dealing with them. No matter who was POTUS in years to come, this would be enforced basically forever]]. So, Comrade? DidntThinkThisThrough, much?
* {{Hypocrite}}: Pretty much everyone working for Radek, all of whom try to use AppealToWorseProblems to make the Americans seem NotSoDifferent, but all of them served a brutal dictator that killed hundreds of thousands of people and hurt even more, and decide to try and get said leader released from prison by attacking another head of state's airplane and murdering a number of unarmed people aboard.
