Executive Decision

Other mistake: How come when they are on the Remora F-117x the pilot is the only one wearing an oxygen mask? The team only has headsets on but they're all in the same space - just before they dock, Kurt and Steven stand up and move forward straight into the cockpit area next to the pilot.

Factual error: The crew sent to board the ill fated jumbo jet is in the "Remora", which is clearly a modified F-117A Stealth Fighter, but retaining the same dimensions. It would be physcially impossible to fit that many people and such a spacious cargo hold into a plane that size with the engines. In fact, with the additional weight, the engines would have to be even bigger for it to operate.

Trivia: Oceanic Airlines seems to be an airline name often used in action movies and TV series involving ill-fated airplanes. Lost and Turbulence (which reused external shots from this film) both feature Oceanic planes that meet some kind of disaster.
