When Harry Kane is flying back to London from Jersey the aircraft on the runway is a Flybe Dash 8 Q400 which does fly that route. The interior in the next shot however is filmed in a much larger aircraft with 6 seats across (the Q400 has 4 across) and while he is having his panic attack Harry refers to the oxygen masks in the safety briefing which the Q400 doesn't have.

It's hard to comment on this film. I'm a big fan of Mitchell and Webb and thought this film was really going to make me laugh...it didn't. There are some funny moments but nothing special, and i agree that it falls very short of Peep Show and definitely thought that Armstrong and Bain could have come up with something a lot more exciting and funny. The plot is boring and a few gags enable it to just keep going but the writers have a long way to go until they reach Pegg and Wright, in the British Comedy Films department...Stick to T.V.
I'd say it's a film to rent or go round your mates house and watch if they end up buying it. But my advice is...don't waste your money.
