Among the original passengers who return for the second film are the hysterical woman who gets slapped (during the courtroom scene), the middle-aged couple who talk about the weird things they've done, and the old lady who endures Ted's boring stories. Also, if you look at the peripheral passengers, you'll see a Asian man in what appears to be a soldier's uniform. This may or may not be a slight reference to the Asian soldier in the first film who commits suicide after listening to Ted's stories in the first film. See more »
When Striker is in the passenger seat and throws his drink in his face, you see his shirt wet. In the long shot of him and Elaine talking his shirt is completely dry. See more »
Sequels are rarely as good as the first movie. Everyone should know that, specially while watching Airplane 2. In my opinion, Airplane 2 still has the same quality of humor as Airplane does and it only repeats a few jokes. It never seemed repetitive for me, but maybe for most people it can get old to see two movies with the exact same type of humor and the same type of universe and imagery. I thought it was really funny that they went into space this time, and they could have done a lot more science fiction movie related jokes, but they didn't, and I suppose that's okay. I didn't expect it to be as good as the first one, really. Of course the first one was better, but I wouldn't say it was much better. I've seen much worse sequels for comedy movies. I personally thought it did fine as a sequel and I'd recommend it to anyone who liked the first one.
