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 »

What a cast that has been assembled as only Aaron Spelling can do! the dialogue is so corny and played so seriously, you'll be howling. The best exchanges are between a drunk Polly Bergen and a very sober Fernando Lamas. The sets are really almost "Plan 9 From Outer Space" level. The "VIP lounge" at the airport was probably a baggage office at LAX and the plane, well, the budget was only enough to show the first class section, so all you see are big blankets/curtains covering the entrances to the rest of the plane and several references by Captain Stack to the "hundreds of people back there."
The upstairs lounge of the plane is decorated in what appears to be outdoor patio furniture and during the course of the film, the scariest looking cheese and crackers fester along the back of the wall uneaten by these high-falutin' jet-setters who spout inane dialogue as the viewer tries to wade through the red herrings and Farrah's cocktail service.
The whodunnit wraps up quickly, of course. Suprises? No. Laughs? Yes!
The $5.00 DVD I got of this in the Best Buy junk pile is covered in Farrah's photos and the DVD even includes a "Farrah Quiz" at the end that even your mother could not flunk. Thanks to Barry Diller and Spelling/Goldberg for making these tacky ABC "Movies of the Week" in the 70's and for someone actually mastering these DVD coasters that provide some of us with a hilarious flashback to our youth.
