Ryan Weaver romances beautiful women before he kills them. Ryan is arrested, convicted, and is part of a Christmas Eve transfer of prisoners on a transcontinental 747 commercial flight. Other airlines at JFK may have holiday passengers waiting on stand-by, but this jumbo jet takes off with a lot of empty seats. Ryan and another prisoner overpower and kill their guards. The few civilian passengers are herded into a "pantry" on the plane and are not seen again until the end of the movie. Ryan eliminates the other prisoners and all the crew members except Teri Halloran. The remainder of the movie follows a "cat-and-mouse" game between Ryan and Teri on the 747. Written by

The toy store in the movie in reality is a bookstore on the Main Street in Clinton, New Jersey, USA. There is a toy store on Main Street but it is in an alley and director Robert Butler didn't like the exterior of the building. The bookstore's front window was decorated with toys for the week of filming. See more »
The times shown at various points along the trip are somewhat too late for the amount of sky light depicted on December 24. Most notably, sunset at Las Vegas would be just past 4:30 pm PST on that date, yet we see the sky not fully dark at 5:35. What's more, at the same time a fully dark sky is seen at Los Angeles.

I guess September 11th of 2001 has eaten lots away from the entertainment value of movies like "Passenger 57" or "Turbulence" but let's face it, this one was never a masterpiece to start with. The biggest reason to watch "Turbulence" is Ray Liotta's excellent, furious performance as a psychopathic killer Ryan Weaver. Without him the film would hardly be even half as good. There's very little of decent special effects and the plot is incredibly basic, providing not even a single surprise or a twist. In a nutshell, this is just one watchable plane flick if you really haven't got anything better to do and certainly more interesting than just an empty television screen.
