It would be a mess if all the crew on a jet liner are this inept. They all act like they're fresh out of school. In reality, there's a mixture of experienced, and not so experienced crews on board.

The movie was fun to watch. But it seems like the producers including the director really had to learn the subject that they were not so well prepared to take on. Every scene looked like regurgitating something they've learned from ANA. The airline will be out of business if they had this many problems within 2 hours of the flight.

Saburo Tokito, and Shinobu Terajima was good as the captain and the head cabin attendant. It seem like the movie followed the format of another series "Attention please" staring Aya Ueto. The formula of inept flight attendant(s), and the strict instructor is strait out of that story.

Ittoku Kishibe also was great in his supporting role. If they collected the actors of Tokito, Terajima, and Kishibe's caliber in other roles, this movie would have been better.

Not a bad film, but could have been better. It had a charm of its own, and was worth watching.
