From my viewing of Air Force One, the president's personal status was, at least at the beginning, immaterial to any purported "incapacity". To quote the AG when he rebutted the SecDef:

That doesn't settle it at all. The President is not merely "out of contact". He is also under duress. His family is being held hostage.
That is the basis for the incapacity in that film: so long as the First Family is being held hostage, the President can be considered "Compromised". The President's own status being ambiguous is obviated by his family's situation. At least until he is able to make contact and demonstrates that he is actively resisting.
