When terrorists seize control of an airliner, an intelligence analyst accompanies a commando unit for a midair boarding operation.
Kurt Russell and Whip Hubley were once brothers-in-law, Kurt was once married to Whip's sister Season Hubley.
I hope there's a good movie on this flight.
The plane departs from Athens just before sunset (it's daytime in the boarding lounge), when London would still be in full daylight. But the London bombing scene, supposedly at about the same time, is at night.
The version shown on American television (as of 2014) has had many politically correct changes dubbed into its soundtrack, presumably to avoid offending any Muslim anywhere. The words "Allah" and "infidel" have been replaced by "God" and "enemy" respectively, as just 2 examples. The Algerian terrorist also no longer has his country of origin specified. This is even true when the film is shown on dedicated movie channels without commercials (such as Encore), which do not usually cut or edit content of any kind.
