Aircraft have oxygen holds only for flight crew, not for cabin and only for emergency. The masks you can see in the cabin are chemical oxygen generators, which generator oxygen only for half an hour. Normally oxygen is provided by the engines. They take air in through the engines or other intakes and compress it to give a pressurized cabin, not holding oxygen in a compartment. See more »

Final Descent isn't an original flick.-But first and foremost a solid movie, without all the usual mistakes we're all so sick and tired of! The acting is solid. The plot and script works. The technical aspects seem credible. The outside-shots of the airplane are good. and the special effects are actually flawless. -On top of which Robert Ürich delivers a fine performance as usual. All in all:-A good version of an old idea. You won't be disappointed. I give it 4/6!
