Plot hole: Bomb squad vehicles are present at the airport when the plane lands. There is no bomb disposal unit in Goose. If one is needed it has to come from two provinces away - travel time by vehicle, in March, going flat out: minimum 20 hours + a 2.5 hr ferry trip. Not to mention that the markings on said vehicles are American: transportation of those vehicles from the US wouldn't have been any easier than from Canada, on the contrary, so again, they wouldn't have had the time to bring them over.
Plot hole: The whole concept of a kidnapper 'pretending' his victim didn't get on the plane in the first place is utterly laughable. Even if nobody saw her in her seat, why didn't they see her walking down the aisle to her seat, or waiting to board the plane, or in the boarding tunnel itself? Why isn't she listed on the passenger manifest, or on her mother's travel documents or airline ticket? And there would have been security cameras all over the airport.
Plot hole: Along with the $50 million, one of "Kyle's demands" from Carson is that the FBI provide "her" with a Gulfstream III plane, which is presumably which he plans to escape on. This is actually the stupidest mistake he might have made. If his plan had succeeded in framing Kyle and having her holding the detonator in her hand dead, he wouldn't just allowed to leave like that, mostly because with the threat over the plane would have been withdrawn. His $50 million might have been withdrawn too, if his account wasn't protected.
Plot hole: The hijackers somehow know who Kyle is, and what her job is, and what kind of family she has even though Kyle doesn't appear to have known them prior to meeting them on the plane. The only time she met the morgue director was at the beginning of the movie when she went to see her husband's body before deciding to board the plane, so there is no way they could have known who Kyle was, and that she had a husband, and an only child, for a whole host of reasons. Firstly, the information about passenger plane designers is protected by very tight security to keep people from having access to to it. Secondly, passenger plane designers are secretive people who don't speak publicity about their jobs. Thirdly, passenger plane designers rarely interact with Air Marshals, and flight attendants, as they all work in different places. These three reasons I mentioned are to keep people from learning about avionics engineers, and their families in order to prevent the exact thing the hijackers were the trying to do - framing an avionics engineer.
Plot hole: Carson states to the captain that Kyle is a "hijacker" and is threatening to blow up the plane unless they transfer $50 million to an account (which we don't see.) He also tells the captain that she refuses to negotiate, and to agree to the ransom without speaking to her. This takes us far more than suspension of belief that the captain would not question about the detonator or other specifics. Therefore, it is very unrealistic that Carson could have predicted the captain would have agreed to the ransom simply because he thinks the captain would immediately trust an Air Marshall's word, not to mention that Carson shows no evidence of Kyle being a "hijacker" when that could be helpful in his plan whatsoever. He also never counts on the fact if the captain actually didn't move the money to the account when he said he did over the phone.
Plot hole: Kyle thinks to mention to Carson, who is actually the hijacker, of why there is only one coffin and not two if her daughter died. So, why didn't she mention this to the captain as well? She had a chance to when she passed by him as she was being brought back to her seat by Carson.
