YMMV: Airport
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: The landing.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Joe Patroni became a Recurring Character in each of the sequels, though not with the same job. He was always played by George Kennedy.
    • Helen Hayes' Oscar would also cement this status.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • In Concorde: Airport '79, Robert Wagner is trying to murder his girlfriend. Some might see this as a cruel irony to the dispute over his real-life drowning of girlfriend Natalie Wood.
    • The Concorde that was used for that film (and is seen exploding in the end) crashed as Air France Flight 4590 on July 25, 2000 in Paris, killing 113 people.
  • Product Placement: Despite being over twenty years since its first flight, Boeing couldn't have written a finer commercial for the 707.
  • Sequelitis: Three, in fact.
  • The Woobie: Inez, and arguably Sarah Demerest.
