Flightplan

Factual error: The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are shown checking baggage in the final scenes at the same time that FBI agents are making arrests. The flight landed in Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. According to the Criminal Code of Canada, any crime committed during an international flight that ends on Canadian soil is deemed to have been committed in Canada. That being the case, the RCMP as the national police force has full jurisdiction. There is no way the FBI would be involved at that point.

Factual error: At the end of the movie when Kyle and her daughter are being driven away we see a shot of the licence plate. Although it is marked "Newfoundland and Labrador" the numbers are before the letters, the reverse of what it is in the province.

Volanges

Factual error: At the end of the movie, when they land in Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, the firetrucks that rush to the scene are the wrong color. The firefighters at the Goose Bay airport drive yellow fire trucks, not red ones.

Volanges

Factual error: Carson says that the explosives were put inside the casket because caskets aren't X-rayed. Even though often times cargo such as the casket are sent by "known shippers", and known shippers check screen the casket, they are still X-rayed by airport security. There are no exceptions to X-raying cargo, even if it was already deemed secure.

Factual error: When Jodie triggers the explosives and the plane collapses, the windshield is shown shattering and exploding. That is multilayer safety glass, it would not shatter in that manner.

Trivia

The role of Kyle was originally written for a male character, but when Jodie Foster expressed interest, the filmmakers felt she was strong enough to carry the part and cast her instead.
