A jumbo jet leaves New York. After the plane has departed, a note is found in the first class lounge with an ominous message left by a passenger threatening to kill some of the passengers. At first it is thought to be a sick joke, but soon a man posing as a priest and a stewardess are killed. It is up to the captain to find the killer before the body count increases. Written by

The uniforms worn by the airlines female crew members are actual TWA Stewardess uniforms worn during the winter months from 1968-1971. The same uniforms can be seen at the end of Steven Spielberg's "Catch Me If You Can". See more »
When the plane lands in London, the sky is shown at dawn, yet when the plane finishes its taxiing, it is night. Given the time-frame of the movie, the flight should be landing in the morning. See more »
Even by TV movie standards this is poor. One of the main problems is that Robert Stack and Hugh O' Brian are so wooden in their leading roles. Honestly, planks of wood could have acted better.The movie has a cheap look and the flight is full of all the usual stereotypes. The denouement, such as it is,is almost laughable.This is very typical of TV movies of the time. I suppose there are worse ways you could spend 90 minutes,like scrubbing out your kitchen perhaps. Total routine fare.
