Executive Decision

New this month Plot hole: Other than the sleeper, the only two people that know about the bomb are Hassan and Jaffa, with the hijacking of the plane being used as a smokescreen to allow Hassan to blow the bomb up over Washington D.C. We know that Hassan and Jaffa set the plan up for Jaffa to get captured so Hassan could hijack the plane. When you think about it none of this makes sense. If Hassan was going to detonate a nerve gas bomb over America and kill millions of people anyway there was no need to get Jaffa captured at all, just hijack the plane and carry out the bombing.

New this month Suggested correction: Hassen's own men don't know Hassen's true intention, they truly believe Jaffa was captured. With Jaffa captured, they're easier to persuade to join the cause of hijacking the plane. It seems Hassen was unsure he could recruit men for a suicide mission and thus lies to his own men. It's not a ruse to fool the American government.

New this month Plot hole: After Jaffa is captured the news gives a full report of Jaffa being held captive on an American warship in the Mediterranean. Why would the media know who was captured, who captured him, and where he was being held? This was a covert operation to capture the worlds most wanted man, the media shouldn't know any of this.

Plot hole: Not counting Altar or the Sleeper we know there at least 8 other terrorists on the plane. One of them is killed by Altar himself and five of them are killed by the strike team. What happened to the other 2 terrorists?

Plot hole: When Grant lunges at Damou, Louie tells Rat that Grant has him. How can Louie see what is going on when the probe he is looking into was pointed at the seat they thought the sleeper was sitting in? Also if he can move the probe to look around the cabin then why bother with the time wasting idea of using Jean to point out the seat number?

Mistakes

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.
