I saw it last night, but couldn't tell what kind of aircraft it was.
didnt look like A380, certainly not B747, nor did it look like A340.
they just made up a fancy jumbojet?

I've only seen a few shots from the movie, but I think it is just Hollywood magic. Not a real plane.

Since Greekman72 warned me the movie was terrible, I haven't watched it.

I very liked the movie. It wasn't terrible in my opinion.

Anyway, the aircraft doesn't exist in real life. They call it an E-474.

Not more than ten exterior scenes of the E-474 ,only one from the cockpit(not more than 5 seconds).The movie trailer show these scenes to impress us... Dont Know

My opinion was that it was a poor movie saved by J.Foster's acting skills.The craft was imposing but i remember some scenes that it was shaking too much,for a craft of this size, from turbulence...Another one mistake in order to impress the majority of viewers... Shocked Wink

The plane wasn't a boeing, or an airbus. It was just some sort of made up plane and put into a passenger jet. The E474. The mam says it before they get on the plane.
STILL BRILLIANT MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
